Checking In: End of Hour Three

So how's it going for everyone??? We're off to a good start. Rocketgirl is kicking my heiney at this point, but I have been cheerleading and Twittering on and off all morning, so I comfort myself with that. ;)

So far I've finished Jessica Abel's graphic novel, Life Sucks (98 pages read) and almost polished off Anne Fadiman's book of bookish essays, Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader (71 pages read). Both books were fantastic!

Rocketgirl polished off Roald Dahl's George's Marvelous Medicine this morning--a re-read for her--(89 pages read) and she read Craig Thompson's graphic novel, Good-Bye Chunky Rice (125 pages read). Now she's working her way through the graphic novel adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Coraline!

It's a reading frenzy in our house! And there isn't a single soul up--besides us--to witness it. Even Daisy is passed out. I'm off to do a bit of cheerleading, and I'll probably have to run out for some dog food for Miss Daisy, but I'll check back in after a few more hours!


  1. Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

    May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
    May all the books appeal.
    May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
    the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
    may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

    Good luck today!

  2. That's so fun you're doing it w/ ROcketgirl! And you're both doing great!

  3. Sounds like you both are doing well. :-) Keep up the good work!

  4. So cool that your participating together.Hope your still enjoying yourself and feeling full of beans :D

  5. Have a wonderful Day; enjoy your books, and take time to rest as well. It is pouring here so it's the perfect day to be in the house reading and relaxing!

  6. Sounds like both of y'all are doing fantastic!! I'm being lazy! I've been spending way too much time online and I've read about 151 pages so far 4 hours in :p so don't feel bad about spending time on twitter and online :p Have fun Andi!!

  7. Happy Read-a-Thon day! I hope the first few hours have been treating you well. Have fun today and enjoy the wonderful books you have lined up :)

  8. You sound like you are doing a good job! Enjoy your books!

  9. I stopped to take a little break to catch-up on challenges and get showered and dressed. Feelign good and ready to go tackle the next hour. Am I the only one to feel a physical rush from all of this?! Craziness! :)

    Hmmm, I think I'll pick up my Gaiman selection. Have fun, Andi!
