Read-A-Thon Update (9)

Well, I've just woken up from what was supposed to be sleeping 4 hours but turned into sleeping 5 hours. My alarm didn't go off. Don't ask me HOW I managed to wake up without it.
I'm about to be headed back to reading, but I thought I'd do a couple mini-challenges to help wake myself up first.
First, for Chronicle of an Infant Bibliophile, I have to list 5 children's books that I love. So here we go:
1)the Hungry Caterpillar (I've had to read this moe times than I can count; it's a good thing I love it!)
2)Any of the Clifford books
3)Harold and the Purple Crayon
4)Where the Wild Things Are
5)Walter the Farting Dog

For another, for Fyrefly's Book Blog, I had to shake my booty for at least the duration of a whole song. This was actually a very helpful mini-challenge. I chose "Dance Party for Two" by the Unlovables.

At the Hungry Readers, I had to complete this sentence: "I would rather read than _____________ any night!" with a phrase from page 23 of my book. Unfortunately my book is a kindle book, so I don't actually know if it was from page 23, but I tried, and this is what I came up with:
"I would rather read than successfully struggle to overcome barbarism any night!"

It's kind of lame, but I'm still half dead to the world.

I think that's it for now. I'm going back to reading, and I will TRY not to fall back asleep. Agh!
