That looks like fun!

It's about my normal bedtime now. I'm still going strong on the excitement of Staying Up All Night, but I'm thinking coffee would be in order about now.

Megan said...

People keep posting pictures and/or descriptions of really tasty food this hour. And I have no tasty food! I am distracted from my cheerleading by all the tasty looking fooood.

Oh wait, what I meant to say is you're doing awesome, keep up the great reading! ;-)

Kate said...

Hi Trish! Nick and I are tracking your progress. Looks like you had a good meal at iHop. we looked at Laura's and Kari's blogs too.... funny that you guys all love to read, and all have cats. :-) Love, Mom and nick\

Debi said...

It was evil to post a picture of all that yummy food! Good think I adore you, or I'd have to be mad. :)

You are still kicking major butt on the reading! I can definitely feel mine slowing down.

Amanda said...

Okay first, did you guys read at IHOP? I see you had your book there.

Second, I'm very impressed that you're able to track how many comments you've left. I haven't left nearly that many and I have no clue how many altogether!

548 pages is AWESOME! Great job! And I love the IHOP photos! Looks like you had fun.

How fun and those pancakes look delish! I thought of your challenge when I answered the non-fiction mini challenge. Doing the read-a-thon means we are only that much closer to May 1...yea!

Karen Beth said...

Mmmm, pancakes look really good! I'm about to have a cheeseburger and soft drink. Congrats on all your progress today. I finished my first book! Shakespeare was killing me.

Laura said...

Only 452 more pages to go! Does that sound like a lot or a little? Hopefully the Fun Home book will help get closer to that goal faster!

Are you getting tired from the carb overload? I'm feeling a little restless--it's harder to concentrate. Not sure if that is the carbs or the caffeine?

Keep up the good reading!

Looks like a good time is being had by all :D

Michelle said...

The food looks delicious! Glad you had a good time! Hope you are now rejuvinated to continue your quest! You are getting so close to your goal I know you can make it! Happy reading!
