My time doesn’t end until 7 AM, but I’m calling it now. My tired little eyes really want me to. Here was today’s schedule:
— Jen is 100% right. Savvy was awesome! I loved the characters, especially Samson, and I REALLY want there to be a sequel about him and his savvy! …Oh yay according to the FAQ page on her website there WILL be a sequel, but it’s supposed to be about someone we haven’t met yet, although some familiar faces will be around. Good enough for me!
5:00-7:00 Long phone call, dinner, and some Wii tennis (I think I’m bordering on addiction)
7:00-9:20 Finished Savvy (342 pgs; 2 hr, 20 min)
9:50-10:20 Socializing– catching up on blog comments & reading others’ blogs…I am so impressed with how quickly some of the people participating read & how much time they’ve devoted. Way to go! (30 min)
— I like the scrapbook aspect of this a lot. I’m not usually that good with reading nonfiction even though I really like history, but the boxes of text and variety of interesting topics help me get into it. I read a chapter or two and decided to move on to something else. This will be the kind of book I pick up every now and then.
— Enjoying this a lot so far! It’s such a fresh, light-hearted story with a beetle as the main character. I also really love the little illustrations every few pages. I’m not too far yet, but I’m sure I’ll finish it soon!
12:30-1:00 Blog (30 min)
TOTAL (for today): 5 hours and 408 pages
GRAND TOTAL: 15 hours, 30 minutes and 1162 pages! Yay!! Totally beat my goal of 12!
Maybe next year I’ll shoot for 20 hours. 🙂
P.S. I’ve loved how so many bloggers have had pictures of their piles of books. (I love piles of books!) So I wanted to share my own. I’ve got quite a few to get to soon that I haven’t touched yet, but it’s ok. I think I read better when I have a stack staring me down. 🙂
Thanks for such an enjoyable reading weekend, everyone! This was so much fun!
