Read-a-thon: hour 16 wrap-up



Finished book #3 -- The Rural Life by Verlyn Klinkenborg. And that means I've met my goal, woohoo!! Not that I'm going to stop reading, but now I feel less of that self-imposed pressure. I am, however, going to stop reading temporarily and get some sleep because I know what I'll be like if I don't, and it won't be pretty.

Good work! A nap sounds great right about now.

I just reached my goal, too. It's much easier to relax knowing you don't have some sort of deadline. Although that may not be a good thing... :)

Hey, you're a reader of the hour! :) Congrats on meeting your goal already, and if you need a nap, take it.

I see you read Night by Elie Wiesel; that's in my stack, but I thought it might be too sad for the read-a-thon, middle of the night and all that. How was that for you? And did you enjoy it?

Bybee said...

I'm curious about The Rural Life. Is it fiction or nonfiction?

Get some rest...you've certainly earned it!

Myrthe said...

Great news, Tammy! You have definitely earned yourself some rest! Enjoy it!

I am with you - I am so ugly without sleep! :) I took a little nap and am up again! :)
