24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Update Hours 17 & 18

How I am feeling at this point in the Event: Well, in the last half hour, I’ve fallen asleep twice…my reading has basically come to a screeching halt. So this is my last post of the night. I made it through hour 18 and although I wanted to make it to hour 20, I’ll accept […]

24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Update Hours 13 & 14

How I am feeling at this point in the Event: Refreshed! I took more than an hour off (essentially rested, ate, talked with my hubby and watched a little television) through hour 13 and it has paid off. I feel really good right now! What I am currently reading: A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by […]

24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Update Hours 11 ...

24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Update Hours 11 & 12

How I am feeling at this point in the Event: Dragging a bit. My eyes are tired and I’m finding it had to concentrate. So I took some time off in hour 12 just to recharge my batteries. What I am currently reading: A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Maara which is set in […]

24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Update Hours 9 & 10

How I am feeling at this point in the Event: Getting my mojo back after participating in the Yoga challenge (see below) followed by a short walk around the neighborhood with my hubby and Raven.

24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Update Hours 7 &...

24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Update Hours 7 & 8

How I am feeling at this point in the Event: A bit sleepy during the last part of these two hours. I got up and walked around the yard and ate some lunch, but I think I’m going to have to exercise soon to shrug off the lethargy. What I am currently reading: Still reading […]

24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Update Hours 5 &...

24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Update Hours 5 & 6

How I am feeling at this point in the Event: Very relaxed. I’ve been reading curled up beneath one of my quilts because it is a little chilly in the house (I tried to read in a rocker out in the sun on the deck, but the wasps were freaking me out). Gizmo has been […]

24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Update Hours 3 &...

24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Update Hours 3 & 4

How I am feeling at this point in the Event: More revived after eating some breakfast, preparing my stew and taking a shower. All that down time meant I read less during this time period…but I’m okay with that! I’m also really psyched that I won a prize in hour three – yay! What I […]

24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Update Hours 1 & 2

I can’t believe we’re already two hours into the Read-A-Thon – how the heck did that time go by so fast? I’m going to be posting updates every two hours. Here’s the first one. How I am feeling at this point in the Event: I’m a little tired – I don’t usually get up at […]
