Dewey's Readathon Hour 4 Update

Reading Now: Princess Academy by Shannon Hale

It's been __88__ pages and __112__ reading minutes since my last update.

Total Time Spent Reading: 1 hour 52 minutes

Cumulative Pages Read: 88

Books Completed: 0

Eating?: Peanut butter and raspberry jelly toast and a cup of caramel vanilla cream coffee with enough sugar and half and half in it to disguise the fact that it's still a cup of coffee (said the girl who hates coffee but loves a good caramel latte)

I tell you, when I really need it to come through for me, always picks me a good book.  With the help of it and my LibraryThing library, I took a gamble and let it pick me a book since I am crap at making decisions.  I would not have picked Princess Academy for myself, but so far it's been a perfect choice, which is a good testament as to why I should not make my own decisions (LOL!).  I'm totally absorbed and the pages feel like they're flying by.  Actually, I didn't really even want to stop to update and consult the internet, but then I got interrupted anyway and figured now would be as good a time as any! 

I feel like I haven't participated in a mini-challenge since a few Readathons ago, so I'm joining one today.  Uniflame is looking for pictures of our Readathon snacks, so here is my breakfast first snack.  PB and J toast!  Yum!

My parents just went for breakfast, and I have begged them to bring me home a piece of pie from the restaurant.  Cross your fingers that there will be a piece of delicious chocolate peanut butter pie in my next update!  ;-)


  1. Keeping my fingers crossed for that chocolate peanut butter pie in the next update...

    Never tried - maybe will give it a go if it always works.

    Good luck with the readathon - will be cheering you on all day in spirit (even if I don't make it back due to time zone differences).

  2. Can't wait to hear how you like the book! Have always been curious about her stuff :)

  3. I'm glad you're enjoying your book!

  4. My fingers are crossed...though when you show the picture, I shall surely drool all over my keyboard. :P

    Glad you're immersed in a good book! I'm really enjoying mine, too, though it is creeping me out.

  5. I hope you get your pie! That's an awesome idea about I wish I had a list of books I actually own instead of just ones I want to read. Maybe I could even make a massive stack next time or count all the ones I can find in my apartment and use that instead.

    happy reading!

    p.s. I feel exactly the same about coffee... gross!

  6. I really hope you get your pie. Thinking about pie is making me want some too!

  7. It sounds like you are making great progress! I love the method of picking books. Happy Readong! #cheerSweetarts
