Snacks: Just random nibbles. An apple. More cookies. I'm getting so hungry so I think I'll eat a proper meal right away.

Current state of things: Still going very strong. Five books done already! I'll even take a moment to do the mid-event survey:

  1. How many books have you been reading? Have you finished any? Are you on track with respect to your readathon goals so far? I've finished five books, and am ahead on my goal to finish 9 books!
  2. Have you eaten real food today? (Not just junk food, ACTUAL HEALTHY FOOD) What was your favorite food or beverage so far? I did have cereal, and an apple. Definitely need to eat more, though. It's easy to forget to eat in the earlier hours when you're just reading.
  3. Have you been participating in any of the activities on our social media (sprints, photo challenges, discussion questions, BINGO, etc.) I've popped into a couple discussions on Goodreads, but mostly I like to spend my time reading more than doing other stuff.
  4. Are you growing sleepy? Do you plan to nap, or stop early, or are you extending the readathon hours to include sleep? Never! I do not give in! I'll sleep when the read-a-thon is over.
  5. Have you been outside yet today? Have you had much exercise (besides the heavy lifting required to hold your book)? I haven't been outside, but I do have my balcony door open for the first time this year, so that's been refreshing! I haven't done any exercise.
  6. How is your readathon going, overall? Excellent!
