Progress Report: Well my friends, I think I am officially done for this readathon. There's a very small chance that I may get a little bit more reading done once I hit my bed, but I doubt my eyes will stay open long :p Love in the Time of Global Warming was SO GOOD! Couldn't put it down! Perfect book to end on. And I think this is an all time record for me in pages read for a readathon!! I know I've hit 1000 pages before but I don't think I've ever gone over 1100! And I've been reading officially or unofficially since the very first one. So needless to say, I had a blast today and thank you again SO MUCH Andi and Heather for organizing this and to everyone else who cohosted, cheered, read, mini-hosted, thought of Dewey and so much more......I know Dewey would be beyond herself seeing how huge this even has become and I cherish these readathons so much just for the feelings that they bring back!!! Happy reading to those of you that are seeing this thing through to the end and I'll post my end of even survey tomorrow!!! Goodnight everyone!!!

You completely ROCKED this read-a-thon, my dear!!! WOW!!! There were too many interruptions around here for me to ever feel like I was in the swing of the whole thing, and yet I still had fun and managed to finish two books. And last night when I was getting really tired, I decided to go back and look at my posts from my original blog from the very first read-a-thon. It made me happy, but it also made me so very sad. I still miss Dewey so goddam much. I know you understand. Love you, sweetheart. So much.

Wow, you did amazing! Loved reading your updates. I was sick with a stomach virus, yesterday, so I occasionally caught up on your updates from the iPad between chapters of my chunkster. So glad Charli is back! She is such a pretty little thing. Also, I decided to return to blogging but I'm just going to keep things short. Probably won't visit other bloggers much, either. I like being away from the computer more. Hope you're having a pleasant "recover from readathon" day!
