Read-a-thon hour 2: 8:00 - 9:00

What are you reading right now? Coraline by Neil Gaiman

How's that going? Wonderfully! It's been too long since I read Neil Gaiman. He's so delightful. Best line so far: "Spiders made Coraline intensely uncomfortable."

Books finished so far: The Twits by Roald Dahl

Pages read this hour: 48

Total pages read so far: 124

Food consumed this hour: Gummy bears.

Mini Challenges completed so far: Introduction Meme, Reading in Translation

This updating every hour thing definitely cuts down on reading time! Maybe I was smarter last time with my updates every 2 hours. It is nice to keep up with the challenges and stuff, though.

Also, I totally forgot to make my fruit salad last night! :( Maybe when Mr. Towering Pile gets home from work he'll make it for me. I don't think he knows how to cut a pineapple, though...


  1. Yes updating every hour definitely cuts down on reading time. I don't mind the updates but it is the socializing that is problematic for me. I'm checking in every other hour now and I'll only jump on twitter toward the end (I'll try anyway)

    1. Ooh, twitter, I haven't even looked there. I remember last time I tried to check out twitter, but was quickly overwhelmed by the multiple tweets per second on the readathon tag!

  2. Surely there are instructions online for slicing pineapple?! You need all the reading time you can get! :)

    1. Haha. True that! To be honest, I'm not sure I even know how to slice a pineapple! Well, one of us will figure it out this evening, anyway.
