Read-a-thon: Update Hour 7-8


Well, my Aggies lost--but I'm OK with that. I didn't catch the game, but it seems as though the put up a good fight. Maybe next year (although how many years in a row have they lost to Tech now? Laura--do you know?)
I didn't get as much reading done the past two hours because I had to get cleaned up and fix some lunch (sushi rolls! yum!). For those who asked--Just out of Luck by Willie Nelson was a pleasant surprise. Not a strong beginning but I found myself liking it more and more as the story went on.
Hours 7-8
Pages: 58 (from Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl--Loving it but it is taking me longer to read)

TOTALS:
312 minutes reading
280 pages

Maggie looks so cute! And the sushi rolls sound yummy. I love Anne Frank's Diary, but from what I remember it's not that fast a read.

Keeping track of other participants visited is hard, isn't it?

Laura said...

You made sushi?? I'm impressed!

The game was too close for comfort for the majority of the time. That is what makes sports to fun!

Is this your first time to read Anne Frank?

I would love to reread Diary of Anne Frank. I think I was in high school when I last read it. Enjoy!
