Readathon Update, noon

Went for a walk, listening to Oscar Wao along the way. I didn't feel like bringing a camera for the mini-challenge, but it's a gorgeous day out and everybody and their dog is outside. It felt great to let my eyes do some distance-focusing for a change!

Title of book(s) read since last update:Oscar Wao
Total number of books read so far: 1 and several pieces
Pages read since last update: 57
Running total of pages read: 313
Amount of time spent reading since last update: 1 1/2 hours
Running total of time spent reading: 4 1/2 hours
Mini-challenges completed: Kind of completed the hour 7 challenge, although I didn't take pictures.

I'm going to listen to a little more Oscar Wao while fixing lunch, then I need to charge my mp3 player so I'll switch back to Flygirl. Also: the kids are on their way home.


  1. I keep thinking that Oscar Wao sounds like a good book (based on the cover and title) but I haven't had a chance to pick it up yet. I hope you really enjoy it!

  2. It started out as a beautiful day here, but it's getting more and more cloudy as the afternoon goes on.

    Good luck with the rest of the Read-a-Thon (especially after all the kiddies get home!)

  4. Good job!Keep it up. I am reading Oscar Wao now. I sure can't wait to see how it all ends up.

  5. Great job so far! I hope you are enjoying your reading, can't wait to hear your thoughts about Oscar Wao. Have fun reading :)
