I'm so impressed you know your numbers so exact! You're doing great!

Amanda said...

Wait - 462 pages, and you say you're not a fast reader?? Thats not at ALL true Debi! You're doing fantastic.

Care said...

HUZZAH! (I've always wanted to use this word and it just doesn't sound right spoken...)

Trish said...

Hmmm--what is Skim? Can't wait to hear all about it! I just started Fun Home and am loving it.

Chris said...

Look at you Debi! You're doing awesome! I'm starting to feel sleepy...I'm trying to decide if I want a short nap or not? hmmm. I'm so glad that you enjoyed Skim too and that we both read it for the readathon :D For some reason, that makes me super happy!

I think I may have a little too much coke myself. I bouncing off the walls a few hours ago and now... yeah. lol. Keep up the great job! We're halfway there!

Amanda said...

Great job Debi!! Even if you don't read super fast, you're getting a ton accomplished!

Eva said...

You're doing great! :D

Maree said...

Doing great; keep it up! :)

Bellezza said...

Would Skim be a Japanese book?(Are you sure you want to blog with someone who has to ask that? I'm just curious because Tamaki rings of Japanese to me...)

I noticed that you don't have an nap time clocked. I'm very impressed that anyone can read for 300 plus minutes without a nap in there.

Maybe next time this rolls around I can join in. In the meantime, I hope you know I joined you vicariously.
