You see, a power outage right at the precise moment the Read-a-Thon hour strikes 12 is so not cool. Not even a little bit. Electricity is pretty essential for reading and Internet connections. I know reading by candlelight was fashionable back in the day, but trust me, after Read-a-Thoning for (some of) 12 hours, that's not happening.
Our power just went out, thanks to the aforementioned storm, for 40 minutes. After what seemed like hours sans book and computer, we return you to our regularly scheduled Read-a-Thon, currently in progress:
