Update: 17 hours in October 25, 2009

This post is an hour late because I didn’t feel like doing it at midnight.  😛

I finished Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown and have now read a total of 571 pages.  Here is the breakdown:

Hour13: 27 pages/wrote blog post and entered mini-challenge

Hour 14: 20 pages/ate dinner/did quick yoga series for mini-challenge

Hour 15: 36 pages/watched end of Michigan State/Iowa game

Hour 16: 37 pages

Hour 17: 44 pages/finished Betsy-Tacy

As you can see, Betsy-Tacy did not read as quickly as I’d hoped but I guess I’m bound to slow down after so much reading.  The best thing about this stretch was that Husband kept cleaning to stay awake when he got sleepy.  Apartment looks less disaster-ish now.

I’m too tired to do any mini-challenges.

I think I’m now going to grab a book and read in bed.  I fully understand that this will probably make me go to sleep.  But it sounds so comfortable. If you don’t hear from me again until tomorrow, don’t worry.  I’ve had a blast so far.
