Dewey's Read-a-Thon: Hours 7-12

I'm a little late switching to this update page. I feel like the readathon is zooming by. It's crazy.  It was probably a bad idea to choose so many e-books cause I need a charge... Hmm...



Hour 7:


Book:  Veil of Night by Linda Howard
Prior Hour's progress: Finished Garden Spells
Mood: Little Tired
Updates: I think I need to change it up.  I'm going to spiffy myself up and maybe take a break to browse the internet
Mini-Challenges: Find a Poem


Hour 8:


Book:  Veil of Night by Linda Howard
Prior Hour's progress: None
Mood: Refreshed
Updates:  I didn't do any reading last hour.  I visited other blogs to cheer them on and I cleaned myself.  I need to be rejuvenated.  Ready to keep it moving :)  This is the last hour for my challenge so don't forget to join in!

Mom finished Listen to Your Heart by Fern Michaels.  Yay!

Mini-Challenges: Book Staging


Hour 9: Weird Sisters Mini-Challenge


My blog is really the main way that I share my love of reading with my family. It posts to my facebook and I've made sure that every family member has a link to it. Many of them comment but I know not all of them have time to read.


Hour 10:


Book: Veil of Night
Prior Hour's progress: 50
Mood: I'm on high alert.  This is the time of day (and into the night when I'm most awake) I'm ready to do some reading!
Updates:  I picked the winner of the Turn the Page mini-challenge.  Congrats Lindsey!  I will say that I loved so many of them and they made me laugh out loud.  I'll create a post sharing some of the funnier ones at a later date.
Mini-Challenges: E-book Survey


Hour 11:


Book: Veil of Night
Prior Hour's progress: 50
Mood: Jubilant and a bit full :)
Updates:  Something happened and my computer hates twitter right now. So I'm sad.  This is after I've come to the conclusion that the social aspect of the readathon is one of my favorite components and decided to give into the madness.
Mini-Challenges: Your Favorite Trouble Maker

I'm totally cheating because Damon from the Vampire Diaries isn't a complete villain, but he definitely does A LOT  of bad things.  He's so cute and his eyebrows connect with my spirit.  So he's my favorite.





Hour 12:


Book: Veil of Night
Prior Hour's progress: 25 pages
Mood: Happy!
Updates:  My twitter is back and running.  I had to do one of the virus scan thingys.  I'm deep in a pretty good book and hoping to finish it in the next hour or two.  I think it is so cute how my dad keeps coming in here to make sure my mom is still awake.  Like I'm not sitting right here.  So cute :)

    1. Mom is doing good, she finished a book. Grandma has given up on the social media and is just focusing on reading. But she's hanging in there.
