10am Readathon Update: One Book Complete!

It’s 10 am – do you know where your read-a-thon partners are?  I’m heading out for a brief “blog tour” to support some of the other readers.

Big thanks to all the awesome commenters who’ve been stopping by to encourage Tesla and me in our read-a-thon efforts.  We appreciate your good wishes!

As of 10:05am PST, I have completed In the President’s Secret Service.  Great book – it will be getting a “recommended” review here next Friday, for sure.  I’m now heading into Sean Ferrell’s Numb, which I have in Kindle format.  Hopefully the changed format will help shake things up a bit, though the hours are flying by at this point.

Stats to this point:

Title of book(s) currently reading: Numb, by Sean Ferrell
Number of books read since you started: 1
Pages read since last update: 265
Running total of pages read since you started: 265
Amount of time spent reading since last update: (this is the first stat update)
Running total of time spent reading since you started: 4hrs 25 minutes (not counting blog time)
Mini-challenges completed: 2

Tesla’s on page 187 of Grimm’s.  He was planning to swap books every 3 hours, but he’s been engrossed in that one since 5am and he’s decided to stay with it until it stops holding his interest.

If you’re reading too, let us know where you are – we’d love to hear!

    Congrats on finishing your first book! I am here to cheer you on, but you already know you are doing a great job!

    Keep up the good reading.

      Thanks! I’m hoping to finish the second one by the end of hour ten – if I can stay on track, that should happen. Numb is a fast read, and different from the other things I have lined up, so that’s a good thing!

    Woohoo! You go girl. And Tesla, too. Currently reading instructions to dye my daughter’s hair red for Halloween season. Toaster warranties make more sense. All the best.

      Thanks for the encouragement Piper! Good luck with the hair dye. I went red for about 6 months shortly after my son was born. I liked the look, but in the end I couldn’t get used to it so I went back to the brown I was born with. Here’s hoping you can get a fun red that your daughter likes!
