Miscellaneous comments:
*Well, that old page read to minutes spent ratio is plummeting! Probably because I have to now read each page approximately 3 times. ;)
*Four hours to go. Has four hours ever sounded so long? Well, maybe during labor.

Oh, wow. Look at the balance you've found between reading and cheerleading... I admire you for that!

It's funny, because I'm reading The Hunger Games too, and it's so interesting I don't think any other book would be keeping me up, but I'm stilling having to reread by page...
