  2. 1) How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired?
    Took a ten minute cat nap and a 3-hour break to go to church. So far so good! Just need to keep the caffeine flowing!

    2) What have you finished reading?
    I’ve finished This World We Live In by Susan Beth Pfeffer, Runaways: Parental Guidance by Brian K. Vaughan and just over half of The Trouble with Valentine’s Day by Rachel Gibson

    3) What is your favorite read so far?
    Probably This World We Live In, although my current read is also pretty good.

    4) What about your favorite snacks?
    My Cheez-It Snack Mix has been really tasty!

    5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love!
    Too many to name them all!

  3. 1) How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired?
    I am in the same timezone (in fact, I am upstairs in the same house!) as Anna above me, so yes I am quite tired! Regretting the late night and the trip into town this morning – readathon started at 1pm for us.

    2) What have you finished reading?
    I’ve finished Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging

    3) What is your favorite read so far?
    I started off reading “Rise of the Empire” by Michael J. Sullivan, the second book of The Riyria Revelations. I’m really enjoying it, I took a break from it for a while and am just going back to it now as it’s guaranteed to keep me awake!

    4) What about your favorite snacks?
    Anna made some pretty amazing jacket potatoes with creamy leek sauce, mmmm! We’ve also had lots of tea and biscuits because we are so very British 😀

    5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love!
    I’ll be honest, I haven’t paid particular attention to any during the event, but I fully intend to go back and peruse once I’m done reading!

  4. 1) How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired? – My eyes are severely tired, but I’m going to keep going.

    2) What have you finished reading? – We Need to Talk About Kevin and Of Mice and Men

    3) What is your favorite read so far? – Of Mice and Men, by far. I’ve read it before though.

    4) What about your favorite snacks? – Pickles!! LOL

    5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love! I like Joystory, it seems pretty cool!!

    1) I can’t shake the caffeine I had back in hour six! (Only two cups! Caffeine headache!)
    2) One graphic novel… because I can’t stop skipping around from book to book! (and I didn’t/don’t want to finish Grave Mercy too soon)
    3) The skipping around = no “favorite read” so far, but Grave Mercy is *amazing!* And so is A Jane Austen Education by William Deresiewicz! And I was listening to What Remains by Carole Radziwill -very interesting…
    4) Peanut Butter Pretzels!
    5) Everyone is so different! I’m planning on making that part of my Sunday, to really read over all these great blogs!

    mwah!
