Read-a-thon: Update Hour 17-18


Which would you choose??? Ya, I'm thinking Ice Cream also. ;)

UPDATE FOR HOURS 17&18

Pages: 60 pages (The Ice Queen by Alice Hoffman--still liking it)
Time: 63 minutes

TOTALS:
634 pages read
700 minutes reading
220 minutes blogging (actually, I lost count)
2 books finished: Just Out of Luck and The Diary of Anne Frank
2 caffeine beverages and lots of water! I want some coffee but my tummy feels like it has a giant rock in it. I'm not entirely sure the chicken artichoke salad I'm eating is helping...
Lost count on mini challenges--will up date next time. Haven't won anything though...boo!

Thank you to everyone for all the super comments! YOU are my motivation. And I want to send out a special hug to LISA who isn't officially doing anything but has been the best cheerleader I could have asked for (seriously--have you seen her cheers and haikus??). Lisa--I told Scott the Rah Rah Rah cheer but he didn't think it was any funnier than the HP video or my pirate joke. Arrrrrrrrr.

Glad everyone is enjoying the HP video (even is spouses are laughing too hard you can't concentrate). I showed it to Scott and his friend (Scott's had to endure me singing "Ron, Ron, Ron Weasley" all night) and they both rolled their eyes. :( Oh well--it still makes me giggle.

I'm starting to struggle a little bit. I only have 40 pages left in the book and then I move on to Coraline. But I confess that I crawled into bed with hubby for a few minutes and did not want to get back out...I love my bed. So much.

Coreline sounds so good! I hope it will be gripping enough to keep you going throughout the night! You have done amazing--and I offer you BIG CHEERS for sticking with it!

Yeah, I would definitely go for the sherbert. I'm trying to decide what I want to eat now. There are some chocolate ice cream bars, or I can eat chex mix...or popcorn. No healthy options though.

You are not too far away from your goal! With six whole hours left, you should be able to make it to 1000 pages! :)

A night of no sleep makes me appreciate my bed more too!

And now I am off to watch the video.

Debi said...

Is there anything keeping you from eating both? Well, besides that big rock in your tummy, that is. Hope you feel better soon!

I have to tell you, my bed is calling me more persistently by the minute. I seriously don't know if I'm going to make it...
