Progress Report: I'm about 2/3 of the way through the Sedaris book and I think I'm going to go soak in a bubble bath to finish this one after typing up this post :) I'm just thinking of what a great readathon this has been so far. Not only has it been a wonderfully relaxing day all in memory of Dewey, but it's sandwiched right in the middle of a five day weekend! The next two days are bound to be a bit of an emotional mess as Matt will be moving back to Arkansas this week, but I'm glad I have tomorrow off to spend with him and don't have to worry about work :)

As for reading plans, I'm thinking after this one, I'm going to start Gaiman's new anthology and maybe alternate between that and Richard Russo's Interventions which is a little box set of a novella and three stories all in their own individual books :) I can use that one to inflate my numbers if I REALLY want to because I can count the four individual books in Interventions as 4 different short books :p Hey, it makes me feel better...ok?

Hope everyone is doing good and having a blast!

Bubble baths, so delightful, but they've been the kiss of death for my Readathons - put me right to sleep! LOL.

Hope you're still enjoying your reading!

I, for one, am now craving a Cherry Coke... ;-)

Oh yes--totally count it as 4! :D

Just wanted to pop in and say goodnight, my dear. I'm going to try to read for a bit more but probably won't get back on the computer. Have a fantastic night, Chris!!! Love you!!!!
