  1. I’m still reading, although it’s morning here so I’ve just started back after a few hours sleep. Half-way through my second book.

  2. I am reading my latest copy of Entertainment Weekly at this stage. I can’t concentrate for more than a few paragraphs at the time!

    I did this last year and honestly thought I had figured out how to pace myself better for this one, but I guess not.

  3. Still up and reading here. Starting to get a bit tired, but it is still early in the evening here. I’ve been quite surprised that my reading rate has been so slow. Still, having fun.

  4. I am just barely holding on at this point, and keep dozing off. The falling book is what wakes me. I am actually enjoying my current read (I put down the last two), but may need to get up and move a bit to keep going.

  5. I’m also still up. I find myself having to take more breaks now. Might try walking around the room while reading (I used to walk to school while reading as a kid — surely I can still do it!)

  6. I’ve just finished Unthinkable, the graphic novel. Not sure how much more reading I can do because I’m going out for lunch in a couple of hours but I’m still holding on here.

  7. from 1 am until 5am I took a long nap =) So now I’m up and will try to finish my second book … I know I’m such a slow reader…

  8. Ok, I thought I would be asleep by now, but I’m still reading. I’m currently reading A Wrinkle in Time — never read it before, and I’m enjoying it so far…

  9. I’m ready to claw my eyes out. I did finish the book I was reading, wrote my Sunday Salon (ha) and now am going back to sleep for the last stretch!

  10. I had coffee at 3 and I’m still not tired! But I finished my book, which I did not anticipate doing, and now have nothing to read!

  11. Still awake, but barely. However, the yoga poses challenge helped me wake up a little bit! Trying now for a short story collection….one story at a time!

  12. I was just about done when I checked the hour 22 post. Jessie’s Girl was a great choice. I’m diving in for a bit more reading.

  13. I’m up (after sleeping) and reading some Neil Gaiman, and about to put the kettle on for a second cup of tea. Well done, everyone!

  14. Still reading…couch was too comfy to come and update but still going strong! Or maybe not so strong…::pushes to stay awake::

  15. I’m still reading, but then I had a four hour sleep, on my fourth book which will be finished before the end of the read-a-thon

  16. Still awake, loving the music choices. I just finished a book and am headed back to the stack to pick something for the last two hours.

  17. Wow. There are still quite a bunch of people up and about. I’m up – er.. semi? Haha! XD

    I’m alternating between reading, cheering and napping. This has been a wonderful ride so far~

    After a few more hours, it’ll be straight on to the next great journey. 😉

  18. Awwww, how perfect! My boyfriend’s name is Jesse, so this song ALWAYS makes me smile. Insta-Perks!

    Thanks and good luck to everyone powering through!

  19. I had to take a take a break and sleep for awhile because I’m working today, but I’m back for the end and still reading! 🙂
