Read-a-thon Hours 15-16


Pages: 72 (Ethan Frome)
Time: 69 minutes

pages read
549 minutes reading
100 minutes blogging
110 minutes cheerleading
13 mini-challenges (Care's Wisdom of the Age and Meryl's Make Something)
188 blogs visited (comments left, not individual blogs...)
2 book finished: Boy in the Striped Pajamas; Frankie Landau-Banks

And good news! My Aggies pulled through! 52 to 30 (against Texas Tech).

I'm really excited:

Now that the game's over and I'm really into Ethan Frome, I think these next two hours will be much better. Finally going to do some cheerleading, too!

This one is for you Trish ... Yay Aggies!

Julie said...

So happy to hear that you are enjoying Ethan Frome. I love Edith Wharton.
I hope you'll continue to enjoy it as you read along. All my best for continued reading success. :)
Plus, cheering will be a fun break too.

Ethan Frome is on my tbr! and it's short, right? HAPPY READING!

Stephanie said...

Glad to see your Aggies won!! I'm finally able to spend some time cheering, so my pom poms are shaking for you!!

You are awesome, Trish!!

Lisa said...

Where is the Harry Potter video??

Bea said...

Is there a Harry Potter video? *looks around wildly*

Ethan Frome! I KNEW there was another book I should appoint for the read-a-thon! I'm slow as a turtle, though, so I don't think it will matter in the end, lol.

What time is there? I'm curious!

Good luck for the next, err, 6 hours?

So glad you found a book that grabbed you! I read that back in high school, but sheesh, I can't remember a dang thing about it. Except that it wasn't one I hated. :) Enjoy!!!

Your vlogs have been great! We just watched the one from this morning, and the last one. I LOVE the cardboard Maggie. She needs to make another appearance before the readathon is over, wearing an Aggie T-shirt (sorry Scott)! You are awesome, and I wish wish wish that I was participating in the read-a-thon. Hopefully in April I can. I love you and am proud of you.

You are really doing great! Isn't the time flying by? I am starting to feel exhaustion setting in, but blog-hopping is helping. Keep up the good work.

Trisha said...

You are definitely the queen of vlogs! Readathon Readathon Readathon!

Wow, over 700 pages-that's awesome Trish! I'm finally logging out for the night although I'm going to keep reading. You are -amazing with all you've accomplished today and tonight-I'm in awe. lol.

You've done a great job! Keep it up and enjoy that last book!

Your vlogs always make me laugh!

I LOVE Ethan Frome, which is weird because it's so tragic. Edith Wharton is wonderful.

Congratulations on your successful Readathon, I'm going to try in April but I honestly don't think I can read for 24 hours! Y'all are so impressive.

Karen Beth said...

I'm happy (for you) that y'all won the game, but also sad for us! Hopefully your Scott will start talking to you soon, and my Scott will start talking at all. He's a pouty boy, too.
