24 Hour Read-a-Thon - Update #1

3.5 hours into the read-a-thon and this is how I've spent my time:

  • I've completed (1) book: Gift from the Sea (138 pages)
  • Started a 2nd Book: The Haunting of Hill House
  • Had 2 cups of coffee and oatmeal
  • Spent 10 minutes on the phone (I do have to leave the house for the hospital this afternoon, but I will take my IPOD and listen to an audio book while I'm gone.
  • Not dressed yet, but that will happen shortly
  • Spent 45 minutes blogging since the read-a-thon started
Happy Reading Everyone!!!!
