No surprise at all that Annie has finished a book already :p She'll probably finish like TEN by the time the night is over, lol. Are you enjoying the book you're reading??? And mmmmm….corn dogs….dammit I need to be over there with all of the amazing food you have!!!!

I hate to admit how long I have been a luker but I do remember the first or second read-a-thon so I was excited to see you participating again. Most usually I work on the weekends but this weekend I'm off and have the pleasure of following along with your progress and enjoyment and doing my own little bit of reading too.I think we read slower when we are actually keeping track of our reading... that is my theory anyway!! Hope you and your daughter have a fun time and your men folk have packed lots of woolies for camping!

Oo, The Hot Zone is one of my best friends' favorite books. I'm still on my first book, but I'm confident I'll finish it today, which will officially be one more book than I finished for the last 'thon. Hope you make your goal to finish yours before your next post unless that would stress you out, in which case, who cares? Just keep having good times! ;-)
