Progress Report: Finished Boxers by Gene Luen Yang and I'm EXTREMELY glad that I went and bought Saints as well...about to dive into that now. God I love Yang's books. They're such emotional books and educational and always have little tender and humorous bits in them as well. Oh!! And Charli came by!!! For those who don't come by here often, Charli is a stray cat that adopted ME a couple of months ago. She's absolutely adorable and so sweet. She was pregnant and had her babies about two weeks ago I guess and I haven't seen her since and I've been missing her but she's here now! It's nice to have her as company during the readathon :) She doesn't like me reading though OR typing apparently as she keeps poking my hand :p She wants head rubs. Here's a little pic of her absorbed in my last book:

Ok...see you all again after Saints!

You're doing great! I can't keep track of the exact amounts I've read, especially w/ these darn ebooks. I ran to the library and finished an audiobook, so that is even trickier. Yum on the latte goodness!!! I've stuck to Green Tea today and Diet Soday (sick effort to be healthy, which is cancelled out by the diet soda, right)? LOL.

Well, I'm off to do some blog hopping! :) Then we enter the darker hours... Good luck! I'll be back a little later Chris. :)

Hooray for reading buddy Charli! Even if she's trying to keep you from reading. :P Keep on enjoying!

Aw, glad Charli showed up to "help"! Everybody loves an unhelpful reading buddy, I mean, I have a whole set. ;-)

Looks like you're just tearing through those books - keep up the great reading! =D

It makes my whole body smile when you post about Charli! I hope she comes around when I'm down for my next visit!!! :)
