So far I’ve read 155 pages in The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner’s Dilemma.  Here is my hourly break-down:

Hour 1: 50 pages

Hour 2:  25 pages/1 mini-challenge entered

Hour 3: 40 pages/1 mini-challenge entered

Hour 4: 40 pages

I’m enjoying reading about other people’s progress (and def. not comparing it to mine as I seem to be among the slower readers).  I’m doing this mostly via twitter since reading everyone’s blog posts would take up too much time.  I plan on going through my reader during the Michigan game.

Right now I’m taking a quick break to write this post and make some lunch for hubby and me.  I kind of forgot about meals in all my snack worry, so we’re having pasta (plus it will give us energy to stay up tonight).  Ben is unofficially participating in the readathon, too.  Actually, he’s reading the first MBS book, so we keep discussing the characters, etc.

Ok, back to cooking/reading.

    I have The Mysterious Benedict Society in my read-a-thon pile too. Maybe I’ll have to dive in since I know a fellow participant is also reading it! Keep up the good reading.
