5:00 update - Readathon

Oh dear... I'm told I'm in the reader of the hour category... Lord bless and keep this blog through trial and adversity... Last two hours have gone very well - Silence is a fun book (though as with most stuff this old, one has to be prepared to accept the sometimes rampant classism and sexism). I honstly didn't expect it to be this amusing - sometimes on purpose, sometimes not (I now know two different old french slang phrases for 'homoesexual' - you just never know when that might come in handy...). I've read through 391 pages, and have read 9hours and 15 minutes. Yay! I threw our lasagna in the oven, after dinner I'll be reading for a bit, and then prepping for Eva's big Tarot reading! Huzzah!

You've read like 3 hours more than me. I spend way too much time blogging and cheering adn doing mini-challenges, I think...

Great job reading for so long! I haven't done too well with reading, since my kids have been running around all day, but after they go to bed, hopefully I can get some more done. Happy reading, and hopefully you can stay awake and finish more books!;)

Chris said...

Mmmm...lasagna...*drools*...Yeah, I'm going to have to go search out Silence! It sounds like it's pretty good! And have fun being reader of the hour ;)

I was wondering why I suddenly got a LOT of comments from people I didn't know, until I discovered that I was too! Enjoy the deluge ;-)

Hmm, I've read two books so far and listened to book tapes when I had to drive or shower, but I've spent a lot of time online... and snacking. Readathon has me ravenous- and normally I am not much of a snacker!

Nan said...

I wish I had lassgna in the oven!

Wendy said...

LOL - get ready for lots of comments! Great job so far...

Lasagna? Wow, I wish I were at your house for dinner!

This is only the second time I've allowed myself on the computer since the read-a-thon began and I'm having much fun with the reader of the hour and discovering new blogs like yours!

Molly said...

I think you are doing a marvelous job! I have only read about 5 hours -- and spent the rest of the time catching up on new blogs and twitter!

Enjoy the rest of the read-athon weekend.

Icedream said...

LOL, it sounds like you are doing fine, no trials or adversity :D
I am also impressed with how much reading you have accomplished!

Megan said...

I could use a piece of that lasagna. I'm full up on snack foods, but now I wish I had some nice, normal food. *sigh*

Looks like you've been reading a ton. I've been doing a lot of blogging and visiting and mini-challenging and losing time, but hey, it's fun.

Hope you're having a great time - keep up the great reading (and have a piece of lasagna for me!)!
