I had such awesome plans for the read-athon and had been planning for this event for weeks. However last night I noticed my throat was a bit scratchy and I felt a little achy. I thought perhaps it was because I was tired from a long week at school, so I took some NyQuil and was asleep by 9:30. When I woke up this morning I was faced with a full-blown head cold! My head is so stuffy that it feels like it weighs about 25 pounds, and while I am trying to read, my eyes can only focus for about 10 minutes at a time. I am hoping maybe hubby can go buy some drugs that will help with the pressure and I can continue reading, even if it is at a rather slow pace.
Here are my stats so far: Starting reading at 7:15AM Finished reading at 9:45AM (with about 6 short naps in between)
Book read: From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler Books completed: 1 Number of pages read this portion of the read-athon: approx. 125 (I had started the book last night) Number of pages read total: 125
