Let me know who is still up and chugging along-what are you guys reading? I am in the middle of Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston (it is excellent, btw).

  1. Hi Allie! Brave of you to take the final hours! I’m just up and reading or will be when I shut the laptop. Thanks for keeping it all going. Have fun!

  2. These last few hours always seem to be the longest. I’m reading the first Harry Potter. I’ve read it so many times I’m not worried about missing anything in my very tired state. 🙂

  3. I’m still up- have managed to read for all but 2 of the hours so far. I’ve just started ‘Plain Tales of the Hills’ by Rudyard Kipling

  4. Well, I’m still trying to get through Sean Griswold’s Head. Halfway through now. Had to stop and do fun stuff like unclog a toilet and clean up a popcorn spill

  5. Hey, Allie,

    I had emailed with Colleen this morning in regards to hour 22. I just sent another email to the dewey gmail address. 🙂

  6. yep! still up ….
    wish prizes were going to those who have stayed up & are activelyl participating…
    would be some encouragement to keep going :))
    just a thought ~ and a tired one at that!

  7. I just got up to finish this out 🙂 I was aiming for 16 hours but looks like I will hit 15.5 (still way better than my total number any other time ) YEAH 🙂

  8. I’m just a few pages away from the end of Richard Hallibuton’s The Glorious Adventure (which is fantastic, especially for fans of travel writing–I recommend it). After that it’ll probably be Earthlight by Arthur C. Clarke. He’s far and away my favorite author, and seems like a positive note to end with. =)

  9. I’m back to Return of the King, taking breaks with Packing for Mars when the battles start to drag me under.

    And speaking of the master book list, are we going to get a look at that data at the end?

  10. I am so tired. I wish I could stay up two more hours. But I’m dragging. Thanks for hosting hon and hope you have a great few hours coming up.

  11. I’ve been up for 24 hours already and must call it quits for the night. This has been a blast! Can’t wait until next year! 🙂

    Good luck everyone!!

  12. I’m making my way steadily through Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder. Its a light enough read that I’m not missing heavy details in my tired state, but its still rivoting enough to keep me from putting it down. I’m hoping to finish by the end of this read-a-thon

  13. Sam and I are headed to our beds….I may be able to eek out a few more minutes of reading–I am so , so close to finishing book 2, Once Upon a Marigold, and Sam is almost done wit Diary of Wimpy Kid, #5–
    Good night all–it has been a blast!

  14. This read-a-thon has gone faster than any I remember. I can’t believe it’s almost over!
    I’m starting The Exile by Diana Gabaldon. I’ve been keeping it for the end. But, if I finish early, I have a few more graphic novels near by to take me through the end.

  15. I was doing really well until about a half hour ago – now my head keeps nodding and my eyes are going blurry. I’m going to keep at it as long as I can, though – only 2 1/2 more hours to go!

  16. still here and i’m reading “grammar snobs are great big meanies” by june casagrande. i’m also yawning like a boss. two hours left until i can finally collapse into my bed.

  17. Just started River at the Center of the World. Given the length, I doubt I’ll finish it in the time left but I’m going to try anyway 😛

  18. Looking for my last book now! I’m not as tired as I thought I would be, but it will still be a tough two hours 🙂
