MidEvent Survey we’re hosting!
Your Favorite Trouble Maker
The Fake Steph Dot Com.
E-Book Survey at Noumena12 Book Blog.
First Line Quiz at Fictionally Inclined.

Get up, stretch a little, get that blood flowing in your lower extremities. Shake off that sluggishness! I don’t know about you, but music does it for me. Cheesy, pop music to be exact. Set those inhibitions aside for a moment and jump around a little! (And if you want to capture this on video and share it with the world, hey, who am I to stop you?)

    – I am doing okay. I had a moment of heavy eyelids earlier, but we just ordered dinner. So the anticipation of Chinese take out is keeping me excited.

    I’ve managed to finish 9 books – mostly graphic novels:
    The Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo
    Cupcakes of Doom! By Ray Friesen
    Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty by Andrew Bolton
    The Titanic Sinks! By Thomas Conklin
    A Family Secret by Eric Heuvel
    I, Librarian by James Turner
    Death of a Travelling Man by M.C. Beaton
    Into the Volcano by Don Wood
    The Storm in the Barn by Matt Phelan

    3) What is your favorite read so far?
    I think the winner on this one is the Alexander McQueen book

    4) What about your favorite snacks?

  3. 1) How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired?
    Well, it’s around 3am in my corner of the world and I almost nodded off on the sofa a few times in the last hour. I am seriously considering to go to sleep for 3 or 4 hours. My bed looks very inviting indeed.

    2) What have you finished reading?
    This and this… But I was done with over half of each of them when the Read-A-Thon started. I am going to crack open a new book now and we’ll see how long I last…

    3) What is your favorite read so far?
    Well, I only finished two so far. So “In Her Name: First Contact” is definitely the winner. It was an epic space opera with great characters and battles.

    4) What about your favorite snacks?
    I am not much of a snack food person. The 24 hours started at 2pm for me, I had an early dinner around 5pm and nothing since. Breakfast will be the next thing.

    5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love!
    I skimmed a few, but did not explore them very deeply.

    I am so excited for work to be over, it was slow so I was kind of able to read but I just want to get fully back into it.
    2) What have you finished reading?
    Jenna Starborn, and TS Eliots The Waste Land…over and over, I had a paper due.
    3) What is your favorite read so far?
    The Academie which I have just started.
    4) What about your favorite snacks?
    Popcorn! and duplex cookies and milk.

  5. Whoops, I’m a bit late, but I’ll answer anyway!

    1) How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired?
    Not too sleepy but my back hurts. I’ll have to find a new spot to sit ASAP!

    2) What have you finished reading?
    The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan and Uglies: Shay’s Story by Scott Westerfeld

    3) What is your favorite read so far?
    The Lover’s Dictionary! It’s so beautifully written!

    4) What about your favorite snacks?
    I haven’t snacked yet! I’ve just been eating like normal! Although I see some snacks in my future!

    5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love!
    I have only visited blogs that I already follow so far, but that is about to change! I plan on spending at least Hour 15 to find some more blogs to comment on!

    This is my first readathon and I’m having a blast! I accomplished my goal which was to read those two books that I’ve read, and now the rest is bonus! Happy reading everyone!
