  1. Melissa, I read (if I’m not mistaken) on the FAQ page that participants may start earlier or later, so I guess it’s okay to start in Hour 5. When I started Hour 1, I visited one reader’s blog who said that she started reading late after picking up her kid. But, I suggest you to contact someone via the read-a-thon’s email for valid info 🙂

    It’s 12:17 am my time and I’m still reading 🙂

  2. It’s Your Story…So Write It! challenge was a little confusing but fun. so many people adding at the same time the story doesn’t flow very well but it’s still fun.

  3. I thought the “Bart’s, Book, Title, Sentence Challenge” was a very innovative idea. Sad, I couldn’t get my camera working (how can things go wrong exactly when you dont want them too ?? )
    Go ahead and read my entry for “Nicole’s Feed Me Seymour Challenge”
