Read-a-Thon Hour Six
In the middle of that, my best friend called me from Kenya! She has literally tried calling me every day, but has called during work and I've missed her calls. Luckily, I was able to catch her call this time and have been on with her for about the past hour. I guess cell phones are incredibly cheap there, and she could visit with me for only a couple of American dollars. Besides, she was feeling a bit down and needed a chat. The call dropped a little over an hour in, but she was sounding better and I now know where she's at and when she gets back.
As for the read-a-thon, it's time to get back to business. Here are my stats:
Number of books read since you started: 1 book, that I saved because I was so close to finishing! You have to trick yourself, and so finishing a book will now help me get a move on!
Running total of pages read since you started: About 50
Running total of time spent reading since you started: 35 min. --I know that looks bad, but I started 2 1/2 hours late, posted, left comments, and was on the phone for an hour. Now I'm ready to make up some time!
Mini-challenges completed: I completed the "Oldies but Goodies" Mini-Challenge over at A Literary Odyssey.
Other participants you’ve visited: About 50! Yes, that stat looks better. Since I had a late start, I really wanted to see how other folks were doing.
Well, I'm off to get some reading done. The snow is still coming down outside, so I have no desire to wander out for any reason!
