Read-A-Thon: Update #8

This update covers hours fifteen and sixteen of the Read-A-Thon (7:00 pm to 9:00 pm PST).

How I am feeling at this point in the Event: I actually have found a second wind in the last 90 minutes. I had a great dinner, some apple pie and a cup of good, strong tea just before 7:00pm. It also doesn’t hurt that my current read is quite engaging.

Mini Challenges during this Time Period:

Eva’s In Honor of Dewey Challenge is posted here on my blog.
