Miscellaneous comments:
*Miss Annie just laid down for a nap. How am I ever going to stay awake without her chatter and jumping jack breaks?!!
*Had the hardest time choosing a book...finally went with this one as everyone seemed to think there's no way you can fall asleep reading it. So far I'm definitely enjoying, but am only 40 pages in.

OMG I'm so tired, lol. So it's time for me to break out the scary thriller book!!! And hot chocolate! I'm so glad my mom's doing it this time: she's shaming me into staying awake, lol. Not on purpose...but...there's no way I'm letting my mom be more hardcore than me! ;)

Debi, you chose the PERFECT book to read when you're getting tired...I really don't think you can fall asleep reading that one! I would've started the second one immediately if it were out yet. You'll love it, I promise. You have read some incredible books this time!! I wish we were all together so that we could....well, bet together, lol. Hope Annie enjoys her nap! Mine helped a lot. I think I'm going to change things up after I finish Marcelo and go for another graphic novel. I'm thinking I may pull Persepolis off the shelf!

I have heard so many wonderful things about Hunger Games. I'm sure that it will keep you up!

Happy reading :)

I just got a break from work and wanted to say Go Debi!! You can do it!! Besides, if you are reading The Hunger Games, you won't be able to go to sleep! It's addictive.

Glad to see you are still going. I'm so proud of you!
