Dewey's Readathon Hour 14 Update

Reading Now: TBD

It's been __117__ pages and __115__ reading minutes since my last update.

Total Time Spent Reading: 5 hours 36 minutes

Cumulative Pages Read: 314

Books Completed: 1!  Princess Academy by Shannon Hale

Eating?:  Shish-ka-bob!  I live in a tiny town with not even one stop light, but there's a sports bar down the street that has great wings and the best shish-ka-bobs.  I had to take a little reading break to chow on them, but it was totally worth it!  I took a picture, but now that I'm looking at it, it's abysmal and you can hardly see them in all their glory, and alas, there are no late do-overs with food photography.  Just picture marinated and beef and veggie goodness!

My shish-ka-bobs and a little eye resting sufficiently rejuvenated me so that I've finished off the wonderful Princess Academy.  I couldn't have picked a better Readathon book for myself (and I didn't, LOL, thanks!).  I'm thinking of doing some short stories now.  The Chronicles of Harris Burdick has been languishing on my nightstand forever, maybe I'll finish that.  Or maybe I'll dip into Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman.  Or maybe (hopefully) I'll manage to do both!

Mid-Event Survey
1) How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired? 
I'm feeling good, feeling strong.  I shouldn't say this.  Whenever I say this, I immediately start feeling tired.  If anyone asks, I didn't say this.  ;-)

2) What have you finished reading?

Princess Academy by Shannon Hale.  Approximately one book more than I finished last Readathon.  Go me!

3) What is your favorite read so far?

Princess Academy by default, but I'm confident it would be a strong competitor even if I'd read other things. 

4) What about your favorite snacks?

Chocolate peanut butter pie, but the ka-bobs win for "best dinner."

5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love!
Agh, I've actually been sorely lacking in new blog discovery, been too busy re-connecting with old friends.  Maybe I'll remedy that here shortly.  :-)
Hope everybody's still going strong!  Keep up the great reading!  


  1. Your food updates are making me jealous... at least I finally had that Snickers bar! I totally agree about finishing a book, I'm glad you did. I started on another one and I think I'll make the halfway mark but I'm tired and bed is in the near future. I wish I could stay up, but I have a hard enough time getting decent sleep as it is. Happy reading!

  2. Congrats on finishing a book! And good luck with the rest of the read-a-thon! I didn't hear you say anything about being sleepy... ;)
    Happy reading!

  3. I'm jealous of your shish-ka-bobby deliciousness.

  4. I'm officially calling you my readathon reading buddy from here on out :p It's made good choices for me too!! And you have me drooling thinking of shish kabobs!

  5. Well done on completing a book and good luck with the rest of the readathon. And shish-ka-bob sounds great. #cheerSweetarts

  6. A town that tiny has a sports bar? It sounds like you had a great readathon.

  7. I don't think you need a stop light if you've got a sports bar that makes great food!

  8. Hope you had a great day of reading and are recovering nicely today!

  9. You did great! I caved on Hour 21 but so glad to have had all those hours of reading.
