Hour 12: Only 12 More Hours To Go!

Can you believe it, fellow lovers of the written word? We’ve reached the mid-way point of the Read-a-Thon! I can hardly believe it. I haven’t even had any chocolate yet.

For your enjoyment and mine, here is a .gif of esteemed author John Hodgman dressed as a Pilgrim and chasing a turkey:

  1. I’ve been working my way through a giant Caramilk bar all day but the most enjoyable snack I’ve had was a piece of chocolate cake with a couple of really delicious strawberries. I think that’ll be repeating itself soon ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Man, I wish I could enter my own contest just to win that fantastic prize you’re offering! My favorite snack of the day — odd as it sounds — has been salted rice cakes with tahini. Seriously. De-lic-ious.

  3. Nice turkey… in the words of my daughter every time she sees poultry… “Can we eat it”

    However, I’m with you on the chocolate… must go find some! I’m just getting started and will read until I drop! I managed to get authors to bid for a review from my blog and raised $100 for Reading is Fundamental. That matched my own donation. To thank the author, I decided to give away five of his books to anyone willing to read a book tonight – I’ll gift it at my own expense via Amazon kindle gift services – if they are willing to post a review. He was a great sport!

  4. I’ve been eating something a coworker made me that she calls “white trash.” It’s basically Chex cereal, pretzels, peanuts, and M&Ms covered in white chocolate. It’s delicious. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’ll probably be moving onto the mint chocolate chip ice cream soon, though.

  5. I am about 10 kinds of obsessed with ABBA. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    Super trouper beams are gonna blind me
    But I won’t feel bluee
    Like I always doo,
    Cause somewhere in the crowd there’s youuuu.

    Okay, okay, I’ll go back to my book now.

  6. I personally enjoyed the blueberry muffins this morning and I have a couple left to have as a late night snack when I need a pick me up.

  7. Had a brownie a little while ago, but just ate my supper now so no snacks for a while. Drinking a Dr. Pepper though! ๐Ÿ™‚ My eyes are getting droopier by the minute though…lol

  8. I think I’ve eaten the entire grocery store – salami, grapes, cheese, cheese puffs, licorice, trail mix, pudding, and one slice of pizza leftover from Hubby’s lunch. Ooooh, I think I need to lay down and read.

  9. Lots and lots of coffee, haha. I haven’t snacked on anything food-ish yet but as it gets later I’ll probably go off soon to find some midnight munchies.

  10. > Weโ€™ve reached the mid-way point of the Read-a-Thon!

    Well, to be precise, when this hour is over, we will have reached the mid-way point. This is the beginning of the 12th hour.

  11. Yaay! Done with my second book. Picking up David Wong’s John Dies At The End now. Just had tea with bread and butter.

  12. These comments make me want some chocolate cake with chocolate ice cream on top! But I do not have that on hand, so my favorite snack as been… a clementine orange. I’m thinking about my frozen raspberry yogurt popsicle in the freezer though.

  13. I enjoyed a banana and strawberry yogurt on a ice cream cone. Yummy! Unfortunately, I’m already thinking about my snack for later.

  14. I have been drinking LOTS of coffee, but that’s something I do everyday! Today I have been snacking on pretzels while reading! I have also had a couple of Mike and Ikes, and a 1/2 of 1 stick of a Twix bar. ( I shouldn’t have as I am allergic to chocolate, but I had to have a couple bites!) (and now I am having trouble reading as I have a migraine and have been vomiting!)
