24 Hour Read-a-Thon - Update #3

How's everyone doing ?  10 minutes short of the half way mark, and still wide awake here...a biggy for me.

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

  • I've completed (4) books: Gift from the Sea (138 pages) ; Zen and the Art of Happiness (142 pages); Runaway Mummy (30 pages) and Miss Smith and the Haunted Library (30 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 2 bottles of water, huge salad with cheese and croutons, apple and lemon yogurt.
  • Left the house for (90) minutes --hospital run as I mentioned earlier..
  • Spent (25) minutes heating chicken soup and eating it with hubby for lunch, and another (30) minutes fixing a quick dinner for us. 
  • Spent 105 minutes blogging and cheer leading since the read-a-thon started.
  • 363 pages read so far/4 books completed/ one audio book in progress, Sworn to Silence, and I'm on (disc #3).
  • Participated in (2) mini challenges.
Keep up the good work everyone, and thanks for all the comments and support.
