Read-a-Thon Update: Hour 5

How's everyone doing on this fine Read-a-Thon day?  We're into Hour #5 here and ... well, I've made some progress and am lagging behind. Allow me to explain.

I woke up at 8:05 a.m. (five minutes post-read-a-thon start time) and needed to have Betty to acting class by 9.  Yeah.   So after dropping her off, I listened to my audiobook en route to the grocery store and back (20 minutes total = 14 pages) and then back in a quiet house all by myself, I was finally able to finish The Elegance of the Hedgehog AND Reasons for and Advantages of Breathing. 

So here's where we're at:

Currently reading: Going to be starting The Blind Contessa's New Machine by Carey Wallace as soon as I finish this post and checking in with how y'all are doing. 

Currently listening to (a new category added just for today):  We're listening to all John Lennon music today in honor of his 70th birthday.  As I type, "Double Fantasy" is playing on my husband's laptop.  I'm also listening to double the bickering from the playroom downstairs where Betty and Boo are fighting playing.

Number of books read since you started:  Well, I finished two, but they were both already in progress when I started the Read-a-Thon, so they don't really count as finished. 

Pages read since last update: 132

Total pages read: 132

Amount of time spent reading since last update: 1 hour, 50 minutes. 

Running total of time spent reading since you started: 1 hour, 50 minutes

Mini challenges completed: 0

Other participants you’ve visited: 1

Snacks and Beverages Consumed Since Last Update:  Coffee (en route to acting class and also back at home); bowl of Cheerios; two slices of pizza; water. 

Off to cheerlead a bit and then to read! (Thanks so much to all the Cheerleaders who have visited thus far!)

Well, at least you finally got through The Elegance of the Hedgehog! And I've been meaning to play some John Lennon/Beatles music all day, but I keep forgetting to open iTunes.

Happy Readathon Day - have a good one!
