Midnight-thirty, All is quiet...

So it's 12:30 am where I am, and I am done with my cheering shift, I hope you all like my little poem that I wrote for the event:

Cover to Cover
And Coast to Coast
Across the Oceans
We’ve been brought together
By what we love the most!
Let’s hear it for the readers!

I think I managed to hit everyone in my section that was possible (that were participating, and that I could figure out, a few had me baffled!) which turned my 1 hour estimated time into more like 3 hours, because I decided I wanted to do all of them, and because I started having internet issues, but I didn't let that stop me! :D I know I loved it the past two times when people came and posted cheers for me, and I wanted to return the favor.

So, now back to reading. No reading reading progress since my last true update, well, okay, 20 pages more while waiting on internet issues to figure themselves out. Not sure how much longer I will last tonight, but I'm good for a little while yet. Everyone else is in the house is going to bed, so it will be me and maybe the kitties if they decide to stay with me. And anyone else in the 'thon that is still awake of course! I'm ready to dig into my second read-a-thon cupcake from Smallcakes whose motto is "Maybe a cupcake will help?" So we'll see if it does! I'm about to dig into a very rich peanut butter cup cupcake, chocolate cupcake with peanut butter buttercream frosting and crumbled peanut butter cups on top. Rich enough to kill ya! So how is everyone else keeping themselves awake in the homestretch?

  1. I like the poem. And you caught me right on time, I was just about to pick my 5th book out.

    I'm fading a bit but I'll stay strong!
