Read-a-Thon Wrap Up!

I admit it, I bowed out of my own volition at around 3:30 this morning. The family wanted to go to an air show this afternoon, and I had some work to do in my online classes, so I called it a night and rose around 11:30 this morning ready to roll out.

I want to thank everyone who left comments along the way and kept Rocketgirl and I reading late into the night. We appreciated every one. My own cheerleading was not as sucessful as I'd hoped because my computer starting rebelling against the Mister Linky. Boo!

I finished a grand total of four books--less than I'd hoped--but they were good reads so I can't complain. You can expect reviews of Life Sucks, by Jessica Abel; Ex Libris, by Anne Fadiman; The Magical Life of Long Tack Sam, by Anne Marie Fleming; and Elsewhere, by Gabrielle Zevin. I also polished off about half of Epileptic, by David B and Assassination Vacation, by Sarah Vowell. I'm looking forward to returning to both of them in the next couple of days.

I also finished off the RIP IV challenge with the completion of Life Sucks. Whee!

I'm not sure what Rocketgirl's final list looked like, but I'll report soon. In the meantime, we'll be donating about $55 we raised (from Chuck) to a children's cancer research foundation.

I can't wait for the next Read-a-Thon, and I hope to see you all there!
