Update #3 - the halfway point

Pages read: 174 plus one audio disc  
Total time read: 3 hrs 15 min (70 min audio)

Total pages read: 566 & 2 discs
Total time reading: 7 hours 15 minutes

Book finished: 2 - "Sizeable Reflections" ed. by Shelley Bovey and "Soulless: The Magna, Vol. 1" by Gail Carriger

Books read from: "The Well of Lost Plots" by Jasper Fforde (audio), and "The Beekeeper's Apprentice" by Laurie R. King

Menu: Still nursing that strawberry soda, lots of water, chili with cheese and tortilla chips.

My back was starting to get a bit achey, so I had to get up and move a bit before I go back to "BeeKeeper's". It's really good, and I don't want to get up again until it's done, so I'm taking a quick break. I'm so proud of how much everyone is reading today, though the time seems to be flying by. I can hardly believe this is half over!

The sun is starting to sink lower in the sky, the temp is dropping a bit, and I'm keeping my windows open for as long as possible to inhale the fresh air. I'm planning on taking a shower after I finish TBK, and that should help wake me up for the rest of the night.

How are the rest of you doing?

Mid-Event Survey
1) How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired?
I'm doing alright, a little sleepy, eyes are a little tired, but not too bad. That reminds me, I need to locate some eye drops for later on...

2) What have you finished reading?
"Sizeable Reflections" edited by Shelley Bovey and "Soulless: The Magna, Vol. 1" by Gail Carriger

3) What is your favorite read so far?

I think Sizeable is my favorite of the two - there's more there to think about and consider, whereas the Soulless, while fun, was more of an escape.

4) What about your favorite snacks?
I don't think chili qualifies as a snack, per se, but it was the most delicious thing I've eaten today!

5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love!
Yes I have!  Two Canadian Readers, Lisa's World of Books, and The Fake Steph are all new discoveries!


  1. Doing great, missy! I can't believe it's already half over! I'm with you at getting up to move around a bit. Glad you're enjoying Beekeepers...

  2. So glad you discovered my blog! I was happy to find yours, and several others of interest too. I'm also starting to get sleepy but hope to hold out for a couple more hours.

  3. Thanks for the shout out! glad to have found you as well. I had to get my foam roller out. I am getting sore.
