Hour 12 Challenge

1. What are you reading right now?  LyndaaPlante's "Silent Scream"
2. How many books have you read so far? just this one - almost done
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? "Waking Up In Eden"
4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day? nope - it is my only free day this week
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Oh yeah - I fell asleep for a couple of hours - the start time for me was 9pm and I had a really long day at work
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?  How diverse the challenges are
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? No - you guys continue to delight me
8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?  I would definitely arrange to not work on the day that the readathon starts so I could get a could chunk of sleep in before it starts
9. Are you getting tired yet? no now (see #5 above)
10. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered? I need more ideas to get me up and moving - it seems to help between the long stretches of reading

SUMMARY: 
read 125 pages (just finished Chapter 16)
consumed: one cup of tea and a large cookie

The reading will stop
Tomorrow
Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
your book count will be higher
Just keep thinking about tomorrow
all the great books you will have to talk about
with your blog friends
If you get blurred or sore, or sleepy
Just stick up your chin
and grin
and say
My TO BE READ PILE, Tomorrow
will be smaller than it was before
and your spirits will soar
because then TOMORROW, TOMORROW You can go shopping TOMORROW at Amazon and BUY SOME MORE!

:D lol
