Readathon update #2

Whew! I finished Youth this hour, and that means I've completed the 10 Out of 100 Out of 1001 Challenge -- yeah, me! I had to agree with Wendy's comment in my last post re: picking Coetzee for the readathon. But I stuck to my plan and got him finished first thing, now I can move on to the lighter reads in my stack.

Didn't know I was going to be Reader of the Hour, thanks to everyone for your comments!

I'm going to use the template provided in Dewey's welcome post in the rest of my update posts, with a few changes as needed (for instance, I'm changing "title of books read" to "title of works read" because I plan to be reading a number of short stories today). So without further ado:

Title of work(s) read since last update: Youth by J.M. Coetzee
Number of works read since you started: 1
Next to be read: Tales of the South Pacific by James Michener; short story by O. Henry and/or Kate Chopin
Amount of time spent reading since last update: 3 hours
Running total of time spent reading since you started: (keep track of this one to be eligible for a prize!): approximately 4.5 hours
Mini-challenges completed: 3
Other participants you’ve visited: too many to list (thanks to Aerin for the great site for keeping up with everyone!)
Prize you’ve won: none yet, but I'm hoping!
Caffeinated drinks consumed: just 1; I'm currently drinking decaf diet coke -- so far my body seems to be fooled!
