  1. I read the Supernatural: Origins graphic novel and it was awesome, didn’t put it down for a second.
    So far so good, I’m liking everything! πŸ™‚

  2. Wahoo!!!

    Also, can you please update my address–you’ve got an old one. Not at Trish’s Reading Nook anymore…at Love, Laughter, and Touch of Insanity (www.lovelaughterinsanity.com). Sorry–many thanks. πŸ™‚

  3. I have had a lot of interuptions today so I haven’t finished one yet! πŸ™ I am half way though The Harrowing by Alexandra Sokoloff and I almost put it down then it started picking up but now its sort of slowed down again, so I am hoping that it will pick back up with some action..I want to be scared!!! LOL

  4. Trish – No problem! Updated!

    Amanda – I just updated with the email address to send your choice to. Thank you so much!

  5. We’re hanging in there in California! I’m halfway through Numb (by Sean Ferrell) and my son is still working through Grimm’s Complete Fairy Tales. Thanks to everyone who’s visited the blog and helped to cheer us on!

  6. It’s so great to see what everyone else is reading. I’m halfway through my HP audiobook, but decided to save the rest for later when I’m getting a little tired. I finished Love, Stargirl and started reading Charlie Bone and The Invisible Boy, and because I like to jump around a bit, am also a little ways into The Austere Academy!

  7. I can’t believe how quickly the day is going by. I haven’t finished a book yet, but I’m enjoying my time reading. It feels so good to just curl up and read. I have had to stop a few times for errands and a few chores. I just got back from my second trip to the grocery store (forgot carrots) and I”m ready to read some more!

    Congrats to all the winners so far!

  8. Luckily, I’m not falling asleep! I was totally worried about that! I didn’t read all 8 hours, but I didn’t get too distracted as I expected to! πŸ™‚
