Read-A-Thon Post 3.

I came home real quick from work on a break to grab some chapstick and caffeine, and imagine my surprise when I open my inbox to see TONS of comments and e-mails! Yay!

I didn't get a chance to post before I left for work this morning-I had the choice between finishing a short story and posting, and the story won out, but I wanted to let you all know that I am doing great and I am blasting through the Holmes stories! I also have about 50 pages left in Slaughterhouse-Five, which I am going to get through on the rest of my break. Once I get out of work at 4, you can bet on seeing a lot of posts. I'll also catch up on stats.

For those you participating, good luck and I'll see you at 4 or so!

  1. Good luck and have fun! I always read simple books during readathon because too many classics in one day can be exhausting! I admire your stamina. :D
