Update #4


Title of book(s) read this hour: Life on the Refrigerator Door: Notes Between a Mother and Daughter (finished); Little Women
Number of books read since you started: 2
Pages read: 224
Running total of pages read since you started: 329
Amount of time spent reading: 55 minutes
Running total of time spent reading since you started: 3 hours, 55 min
Mini-challenge this hour: Nymeth's web comics
Distractions this hour: bathroom break
Current location: On my bed

I feel like I cheated a little, because, while Life on the Refrigerator Door is 217 pages, most pages consist of something like this:

Claire,

We need to talk. I'm in my room.

I love you, Mom

But 217 pages it was, and 217 pages I'm counting. Laura is mad because she doesn't read quickly. :-) I need to tell her to take a break from Artemis Fowl and read something quick, for a sense of accomplishment.

I'm starving, so I'm taking a dinner break!

The 9-year-old boys switched houses, so this was a much calmer hour!

Hey - you need books like that every once in a while - believe me!

Erin said...

Happy Reading!

Debi said...

Darn right you should count each and every one of those pages!

And I second your suggestion to Laura!

Nymeth said...

Your suggestion is a great one. Feeling accomplished is definitely important.

Icedream said...

I am impressed with the number of pages you have read too. (and it counts even if the spaces are large, LOL)

Eva said...

That sounds like a neat book (the mother-daughter one): did you enjoy it? And it's totally not cheating!!

I would be counting those pages too! Good reading!

Somer, I got completely lost following some of the blogs that you read. My favorites were Overdue Books and Books for Breakfast. Congratulations on being Reader of the Hour.

I love the way you are deviding your reading up. You are doing great, keep up the great work!!!

Megan said...

Hey, those "cheater" books are perfect for the read-a-thon. I figure it boosts your morale to read a book you can finish quickly, anyhow. That's great that your daughter is reading with you! Both of you - keep up the good reading! =D
