  1. I’ve finished three and 1/3 books and have am a couple of chapters into another book. (Finished – 1 book of poetry, 1 graphic novel, 1 nonfiction, the last third of a YA novel.)

    And yep, it’s time for a snack. Trader Joe’s sea salt brownies are in order.

    Hope everyone’s doing well – the cheerleaders are doing such a great job. I love them.

  2. I am eating left over fried rice from lunch. Still working on my two books I have been reading but I think I am going to throw in another. Haven’t finished any but am making a big dent in them all. Keep reading everybody!

  3. I’m now half way through Celia Friedman’s Feast of Souls. I’ve had a few setbacks and distractions to contend with but now that she’s sleeping I can get back to reading 😛 It’s 10pm here (GMT) and so the coffee begins in earnest! I think I’ll make myself a sandwich to keep me going too.

  4. Finished 2 1/2 books so far, currently reading Pure Dead Magic which is advertised as a cross between Lemony Snicket and Harry Potter, so far it’s very cute. I’m getting kinda sleepy though, as afternoon is naptime, so I need to move around some, and I think I’ll go bake some cookies! Yay for already prepared frozed cookie dough!

  5. Yay, I won Kate’s challenge! Do I inform her about the prize or what since the mini challenge post she had says that the prize books are chosen from the prize list. 🙂

  6. I am reading Guest House by Barbara Richardson. I have snacked morning and early afternoon and now am snacked out. Earlier had yogurt and cottage cheese, an apple, grilled chicken for lunch.

  7. I’m eating chocolate. I’ve not finished any actual book, though I’m 82 pages into Middlesex, and 33 into The Art of War. But I’m fickle and keep taking side streets into fanfiction that I’ve had piled up in my inbox that I’ve been meaning to get to.

  8. Just got out of the hot tub after reading for an hour from Life Sentences by Laura Lippman. Going to eat the rest of my Subway sub.

  9. Well, lunch with the in-laws was at Chili’s. I had soup and salad — Chicken and Green Chile soup at that. Still reading The Ruthless Realtor Murders. All this family time has cut into my reading!

  10. I’ve been just snacking all day, ready for something more substantial. Dates, Nut-thin crackers, cheese, bananas. Wish I could have some of those cookies, Shaunesay!

    Started out with a non-fiction (When Someone You Love Is Depressed) because it’s been sitting on my shelf forever, but I think it’s definitely slowed my pace. Finished it and moving on to a few short stories before starting 100 Ways America Is Screwing Up the World. 😀

  11. I’ve read about 1 1/2 books…not too productive. I did take a shower and go to church, so now I am back and refreshed. I just snacked on a brownie, then may dip into some pizza for dinner!

  12. I’m now reading Numbers by Rachel Ward. I hate being on a diet because right now I could really go for some chocolate. Or some hot chocolate. My last meal was half a whole wheat bagel with light cream cheese and an egg white and cheese omelette.

  13. During this hour I ate a couple of deviled eggs, which is something easy to prepare ahead of time. I may heat up a pizza later. The cat is sitting at my feet, telling me it’s time to feed her.

  14. Drinking Iced Tea and trying to decide whether to eat cheese & crackers. Just started reading, “The Delany Sisters’: Book of Everyday Wisdom”
