Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon (Update #1)

Well!  Today got off to a little bit of a hectic start.  My husband and I are doing a cycle of IVF treatment (yay!) so I’ve had doctor’s appointments every day this week.  Unfortunately, that also included today, so I wasn’t able to focus as much on reading for this Read-a-Thon like I wanted to.

I’m home now, though (After a quick stop at Barnes & Noble to peek through their clearance rack…got 4 books!) and reading again.  I did read while in the waiting room, while my husband drove us to and from each place, and while he stopped to grab some supplies at Target.    Anywho, on to the update…

Title of book(s) read since last update: Room by Emma Donoghue and Birthmarked by Caragh M. O’Brien.
Number of books read since you started: 2
Pages read since last update: 681
Running total of pages read since you started: 681

But for now…a nap.  🙂  Good luck, everyone, remember to take breaks and rest your eyes! (Or ears, as the case may be.)

Lovelove,
