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 falling short a tad.

    Be proud!

  2. I fell asleep right around the same time. Both of those are heavy (and wonderful) books, so getting that far is a big feat. Congrats!

  3. You had a terrific readathon!
