Well this is double excitement --- I finished my first read-a-thon book AND I have published my 100th post! What an eventful weekend :)
First of all, my stats:
books completed: 1 (yippee!)
pages read so far: 310
number of reading hours: 4.0
book currently reading: Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier (will start after this break)
I am showered (although I now need to dry and style hair) - and I completed the Chocolate Chip Cookie murder. There was quite the twist in the end and in all, it was a good book to begin 12 hours of solid reading.
I have now decided that I need to increase my instrumental music collection for the next read-a-thon! I can't listen to music with lyrics while reading - or I begin to focus on the words begin sung rather than the written word. I have my iPod playing on the iHome -- but I am beginning to tire of the Nature Sounds CD --- Tune Your Brain to Mozart CD -- and Bill Evans Trio CD. I really enjoy the smooth jazz as background music, so I will have to focus on music purchases in that realm (do any of you have suggestions for great instrumental music? I would love to hear)
I am going to take some time to play cheerleader for other read-a-thon participants --- fix hair -- and then get back to reading.
Thanks again for all your encouragement and support :)
