Read-A-Thon: Update #7

This update covers hours thirteen and fourteen of the Read-A-Thon (5:00 pm to 7:00 pm PST).

How I am feeling at this point in the Event:Very tired…time for dinner!

Mini Challenges during this Time Period:

I posted the mid-event survey in this time period.

I also decided to do Jill’s Musical Mini-Challenge:

I chose one of my favorite Norah Jones’ songs which I thought a bit appropriate for the Read-A-Thon: Wake Me Up

I especially think the the last stanza fits: “I will still feel it later on, But for now I’d rather be asleep” because that is kind of what I’m thinking right now!!!

    You keep such detailed stats! I am so impressed. I seem to have a difficult time just logging in the minutes read and total pages completed 🙂

    Hope you were able to have a nice dinner and feel re-energized.

    Jill: Why thank you! Glad it made you laugh 🙂

    Kailana: I create the bones of these posts ahead of time…and then just fill in the ‘blanks.’ It helps a lot – especially when I start getting tired!

    Molly: *laughs* Well, I set up my posts ahead of time…that way I don’t have to create the whole thing every time…Dinner was great 🙂

    Mari: Thanks!
