Look who finally decided to come cuddle! Hi Maggie! (the real Maggie). Don't you love how they crawl right in front of the book so you can't see it? :D


Not much to report. I finished The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks and really enjoyed it! Went for a quick run to take in some sunshine and a delicious fall breeze. And I'm going to take off all of hour 11 from reading to cheerlead!

Hey Maggie! They do like to cuddle right in front of the page; but how can you resist?

claire said...

Sweet photo! My baby just fell asleep so I should probably stop visiting and start reading again.

Amanda said...

Have fun cheerleading. I think I'm going to try to just read for the next few hours. I'm doing so bad on my time goal!

Hi Maggie! Are you helping by turning the pages?

Bonnie said...

I've been out of the blogging loop this week as I had the flu. I just realized it's read-a-thon so I am stopping by to cheer you on!


You're doing great...wow, lots of reading going on here today!

Hi Maggie..what a cutie!

Tricia said...

Frankie Landau is a great choice for today. You've read two great books so far!

nice read-a-thoning.

that's a cool cat. i find that cats always seem to want to lick my chest, which is slightly weird. I remember my friend's kitten crawling inside my t-shirt and started licking. It was cute and yucky all at the same time.

also babies always want to grab my hair and play with it. you know what they say about cats and babies...

no tell me

Maggie is such a sweetie. Buddy just keeps giving me disgusted looks past my book in front of my face. lol.

Yaaaaay on finishing another book. Keep it up girl! You're doing great!

Alison said...

I loved Frankie. Glad you liked it, too!

Bellezza said...

I'd count more than an hour blogging as reading! You are amazing in how much you've accomplished so far today, and thank you for finding time to come by. I love the kitty, Maggue, who obviously wants to be in the read-a-thon, too. Go, Maggie! Go, Trish! If you get to Rebecca, pictured earlier, let me know. I so love that book.

Shannon said...

Bea said...

I don't like cats, but yours looks so cute! Plus, is nice to have someone sharing a book with you :P

Keep it up. Hope to see you awake and cheering by hour 20 or so!

My cats do that too, get right in front of the book. And then they don't settle in right away, but have to turn in circles to get "just right". Or do the whole kneading thing. Ah well, they're our babies!

Alice Teh said...

Oh, hello, Maggie! You're one beautiful kitty.

You're doing very well for your read-a-thon!
