Phoebe and Her Unicorn in Unicorn Theater by Dana Simpson

Snacks: Perogies, om nom nom. Also a Kit Kat.

Current state of things: Feeling great! These are my best hours! After my quick read of Phoebe and Her Unicorn, I decided to jump into The Marvels, which is the longest book on my pile by a long shot, but which also has over 400 pages that are wordless! Most of them are in the first section of the book; I've finished that part and am now on the text part. There's another picture part at the end as well.

Squirrel, You Really Got Me Now (The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl vol. 3) by Ryan North and Erica Henderson

Snacks: None, but I'm about to have a late supper of perogies!

Current state of things: I LOVE Squirrel Girl, but 5 hours spent on that one volume was TOO MUCH. Phoebe and Her Unicorn, with its huge panels and huge font, is the perfect followup. I've only been reading it for about half an hour and I'm almost done!

Snacks: Nothing much.

Current state of things: Wow, I did not anticipate how long this Squirrel Girl book would take me! But anyway, here at the halfway point, I'm just about done my 3rd book. And I think they were among the lengthier books in my pile. So I'm still doing well!

Speaking of which, it's time for the mid-event survey!

1. What are you reading right now? Squirrel, You Really Got Me Now (The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, vol. 3) by Ryan North and Erica Henderson
2. How many books have you read so far? Almost 3.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? I'm thinking volume 9 of Saga!!
4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? None besides my own sleepiness and poor attention span! Although, at some point I do have to pop out for a few minutes to play a tiny bit of Ingress (augmented reality game) to keep my streak going.
5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? I'm slightly surprised by how easily distracted I've been today, lol.
