24 Hour Read-a-Thon - Update #2

6.5 hours into the Read-a-thon and here  is how I've spent my time:

  • I've completed (2) books: Gift from the Sea (138 pages) and Zen and the Art of Happiness (142 pages)
  • Started and stopped: The Haunting of Hill House (read 15 pages and decided to save it for when I get tired. Since it is scary, it should keep me up --Peter's suggestion--thanks Peter)
  • Listening to: Sworn to Silence; Castillio on my IPOD while I do a little cheer leading.
  • Had 2 cups of coffee and oatmeal, and a bottle of water
  • 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. (Oh yeh, now I'm dressed LOL)
  • Left the house for (90) minutes --hospital run as I mentioned earlier; back now and hopefully, no more interruptions.
  • Spent (25) minutes heating chicken soup and eating it with hubby. 
  • Spent 75 minutes blogging since the read-a-thon started.
  • 295 pages read so far/2 books completed/ one audio book in progress (disc #1)
Keep up the good work everyone, and thanks for all the comments and support.


  1. I LOVE The Haunting of Hill House. A fav. Keep up the great work!

  2. You're doing great! I love your blog, and am so excited to see the reviews you post of your read-a-thon books!

  3. An audio book while your cheerleading! Why didn't I think of that! Sheesh.

  4. I'm saving my scary reads for later, also :-). Enjoy the rest of the read-a-thon!

  5. I think you're doing wonderfully. Keep up the good work!

  6. I haven't read The Gift of the Sea before but I just got it from BookMooch. Did you like it?

  7. I finished Sworn To Silence earlier today. It was riveting!

  8. You're doing great. I think, contrary to what I said before, that I will keep the rest of House of Reckoning for later because you're right-something scary may just perk me up for the night.
