6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? Just how great the cheerleaders have been.  Thanks for all the support!
7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?  got nothing

    My neighbor keeps telling me she will loan me Hitchhiker’s Guide so I shouldn’t buy it but it’s been YEARS now. I suppose the library prollly has it.

    Re-reading is something that I love to do anyway, but I can see where it would be a perfect choice to add in for read-a-thon-ing. (And what’s more fun than Douglas Adams?!) And the Parasol Protectorate? I’m just 50 pages into the first volume, but I’m loving it. Looks like you have a great line-up. Hope you’re having fun with it. And keep turnin’ those pages!
    Cheering for you from Team Trix

    I am completely envious of your ability to read 800+ pages in five hours. Well done, and good continued reading!

    Wow, adding the writing reviews on all your books read is an awesome and hardcore way to go! You totally rock!

    Take it easy and listen to your body if you get too tired! And stay hydrated for sure. No getting sick from the readathon. You’re already kicking ass for sure!
