Read-A-Thon: Update #6

This update covers hours eleven and twelve of the Read-A-Thon (3:00 pm to 5:00 pm PST).

How I am feeling at this point in the Event: In need of an energy boost. I’m thinking of eating some apple pie for the sugar load. I will undoubtedly take a break for dinner in the next two hours. I just started my next book which feels good. No mini-challenges this period…but I did visit several bloggers.
