Dewey's Readathon Update The Seventh!

Currently Reading: Smoke Gets In Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty

Total Pages Read Since Last Update: 54

Total Pages Read Cumulative: 739

Total Books Read: 3 (Constable & Toop by Gareth P. Jones, The Graveyard Book Graphic Novel Vol. 1 by Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book Graphic Novel Vol. 2 by Neil Gaiman)

Time Spent Reading Since Last Update: 58 Minutes

Total Time Spent Reading: 8 Hours 41 Minutes

Drinks Consumed: 2 big glasses of water, 1 iced mocha, 1 pepsi, half pumpkin spiced latte

Food Eaten: A waffle and fried ham, cheese dip with chips, turkey and broccoli rice, sugar cookie

Progress Report: Still here. I'm in that meh phase right now. I finally ate a real meal...left over turkey and rice from last night and then got out of the house for a bit and got a pumpkin spiced latte which was made WAY too sweet and I could only drink half of it. I started reading Smoke Gets In Your Eyes which is very entertaining and interesting but it's rough going from a graphic novel that you absolutely adore to nonfiction for a readathon. Honestly, I think it would be hard to follow up The Graveyard Book with anything though. I'm thinking I'm going to go soak in the tub with some epsom salts and my book for a bit. Laying around all day has my body in knots right now! Be back a little later!

Ok--next time I'm totally coming to NOLA so that I can readathon with you. Because you are rocking it!! Sorry about the "meh" feeling--I'm crashing hard at 9:30 so I'm tempted to just pour the wine and let myself fall asleep reading if that's what happens.

Enjoy the soak!

A bath is always amazing. The Graveyard Book graphic novel sounds like something I need to get my mitts on. Happy reading, have a good rest!!!

Sounds like you are doing well! Keep on the reading - hate the slumpy time when you just finished something fabulous and can't handle anything else. Hope things pick up soon!

I have Vol 1 of The Graveyard Book in my pile, but I don't think I can read anything right now (which is why I'm cheering and commenting!). You've done a great job so far, keep it going!

I hear you about the sitting around! I'm at least glad that I had a chance to sit outside for several hours earlier this afternoon. I'm more irritated at myself that I didn't take a book walk to get some of the book-fatigue out of my muscles! Well, I hope the bath works! I'd fall asleep in that scenario, so I'm staying far, far away. :) It still sounds like you're doing awesome today. I always love your reading choices.
