  1. holding up well, keep getting distracted by doing too many things though! The time is flying by, I can’t believe it’s hour 6 already too! I’ve finished one book, and almost halfway through another, currently reading Visions of Sugar Plums by Janet Evanovich, Stephanie Plum is always a hoot!

  2. Since I am only going to be able to do 12 hours, I decided to start at noon. Here I go!! The first book:

    The Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah

    How is it going for everyone so far????

  3. This may be covered somewhere else; but I don’t know where to look. What minute does the hour change on? For instance, it’s 1:05 p.m.; and I was expecting the page to change from hour 6 to hour 7. Thanks.

  4. Hi! I just started 15 minutes ago (it is only 2:15 here!) and I’m also cooking, so I’m only 10 pages down, BUT!! I plan to read AT LEAST the 1000 pages. <3

  5. Woke up early. Read. Dozed. Now got my coffee and I ready to go! I feel like I fell behind in the race. Jumped out early, then fizzled. OKAY, I’m kicking it in. Voooommmm.

  6. Right I’ve logged 6 hours of reading and now breaking for dinner and to watch the Culture Show’s Man Booker episode.

    I am loving ‘Parrot and Olivier in America’. It certainly isn’t hard work as I’ve heard from some.

    So in the 6 hours, I’ve logged 333 pages.

  7. I decided to pop in every six hours rather than as I finish every book. Started on time and have now finished.

    LAST NIGHT I SANG TO THE MONSTER by Benjamin Alire Saenz
    This story about a young man learning to deal with the demons within and without was recommended to me by a librarian and well worth the time. 239 pgs.

    and

    THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY by Oscar Wilde
    The story of a man who has a portrait of himself which ages in place of him. This story brings up many ethical and sociological questions, I am glad to have finally read it through. 218 pgs.

    This is one of the classics for my own 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die challenge at : http://roseanns1kbookchallenge.blogspot.com/ I am way behind on this blog, so I am glad to hopefully add a few during the read-a-thon.

    So, at six hours in my totals are:

    2 books and 457 pages read

    Good luck to everyone!
