Readathon, Fourth Update

Hour Six of Dewey’s readathon:

Pages read: 30

Total time so far: 4 hours
Book read: Bill James, Girls, uncorrected proof
Total number of books so far: 1.5+

The bread has come out of the oven and it looks absolutely delightful—a deep rusty reddish brown, with that lovely hollow thump that perfectly-done bread gets. It’s incredibly difficult to put off having any until tomorrow!

I’m about two-thirds to three-quarters of the way through my current book, and while it remains every bit as fascinating and entertaining, it has also revealed itself to be very richly-layered. It’s a fascinating look at social class and standing, wealth, education, family, appearances, and more.

Hour Seven (and then some) of Dewey’s readathon:

Pages read: 66
Total pages read so far: 362
Time spent reading: 70 minutes
Total time so far: 5 hours 10 minutes
Book read: Bill James, Girls, uncorrected proof
Total number of books so far: 2

God, though, the influence of girls!

Done with book number two, although the cats made it quite clear about 20 minutes ago that it was time for their dinner. I’ll be back after feeding them to write a review, comment, check out how the readathon is going over at Dewey’s blog, have dinner, start the next book, etc., in who-knows-what order.

    While you might not be able to have any of that delicious-sounding bread (although I am wondering why?), come on over to my blog for a special treat just for read-a-thon readers!

    Alisia: Oh, the bread (as well as the cookies we made last night) is for taking to a friend’s house tomorrow. 😀 I’ll definitely drop by in a sec now that I’ve had dinner!

  5. Hellooooooo, Heather! I’m your cheerleader dropping by to cheer for you! The bread sounds good, especially since it’s about supper time here. Not sure what I’ll have, but it won’t be freshly made bread *sigh* which sounds so heavenly. I’ll be cheering you all the way! You go, girl!
