Dewey's read-a-thon update five...

Managed to make it up until 1:00am, which might sound wimpy to most, but it's an accomplishment for me. Unfortunately I woke a bit before 5:00 feeling like crap, just wanting to go back to sleep. But after two hours of unsuccessfully trying, I decided to just get up and read for the last hour of Dewey's Read-a-Thon. And yeah, of course, now I wish I'd just gotten up when I woke up--could have put a much bigger dent in my final read-a-thon book.

So maybe I didn't get as much read as I would have liked, but I had a great time...and that matters so much more.

Unfortunately, today will not be nearly as fun--we've designated it a Family Clean-a-Thon day. Yeah, ugh. But at least it's for a good reason--we have a special guest coming to visit. Eva will be arriving late Tuesday afternoon and staying for a week! :D

Okay, guess I should be off to shower and begin making lists of everyone's tasks for the day.

So hope everyone who participated had as much fun as I did on our very special day to celebrate reading and to celebrate a wonderful woman who brought so many of us together and who did so much for this awesome community of readers and bloggers!!!

Final tally:

Books I've read from:
--The Magic Circle by Donna Jo Napoli
--A Planet of Viruses by Carl Zimmer
--Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm by Philip Pullman
--Kill Alex Cross by James Patterson

Books I've finished:
--The Magic Circle by Donna Jo Napoli

You did great, Debi! I hope you did as well on your clean-a-thon. I need to have a clean-a-thon too, because my sister is coming to visit me on Thursday, but I'm still in denial about that. (The cleaning--not her visit!). Can't wait to hear about your visit with Eva.

Yay! I'm so envious of your awesome visitor! I'm glad you had fun Read-a-Thonning and I hope you and Eva and the bunch are enjoying yourselves!
