  1. Ironically enough, I started reading the first FableHaven book at 8 a.m. this morning, right when the challenge started. Finished it just a few minutes ago, and I can’t wait to “rip through” the rest of them. Just saw Brandon Mull give a talk at an event for Michigan Library Association, and he’ll be in Dearborn, MI on Monday if anyone wants to see him. Having just discovered your blog, I obviously can’t register for this read-a-thon, but I’m adding you guys to my list to check back in October.

    Best of luck with the challenge everyone! I’m going back to reading on my day off. 🙂

  2. Still going strong everyone? I sure am. within this hour I will finish the book I started last night and start probably my audio book so i can work.

  3. I’m such a slow reader and I’ve started reading since 8 am.. Took a long lunch break and now going back to reading… And yeah the time flies can’t believe it’s 7 hours in the read-a-thon…

  4. Excuse me. While on my break(listing to audios now) I noticed my friend heidi and I are not listed as readers and we did sign up weeks ago. And we’ve been reading for over 71/2 hrs now.

  5. I’m about to finish my book this hour and start an audio book so that i can get some work done today. Is anyone else having problems leaving a reply on this page?

  6. Having lots of fun. I have never had an excuse to just read all day long before. I might go outside and read though. It is a beautiful day. I have read 327 pages total. Although if it was just me at the house the I might have 600 pages. That is my record for reading. By the way If you look at my blog please leave a comment so I know that I am not just writing to myself.

  7. What an amazing event! I’ve always thought of reading as a solitary pasttime, but the support is truly amazing, and the mini-challenges are wonderfully creative. It makes me think about how, even though reading is generally solitary, there are a lot of folks out there supporting success because they are avid readers themselves. A shout-out to teachers, parents, librarians, schoolmates, friends, book club partners, authors, publishers, and everyone else who supports reading!

  8. I love these mini challenges, they keep us going. And of course what could we have done without the cheerleaders….
    You guys are just fantastic!

    btw, I am not blogging as frequently as some others are? Is that ok?
