Read-A-Thon Update(6)

I've been reading for a little while now, and my eyes are mega hurting. I'm liking the Guernsey Literary Potato Peel Pie Society, but it's a little slow going for me. So I'm going to take a big break with the boyfriend for some dinner.
Hopefully I'll be ready for a full night of reading when I return!

In other news, I am SUPER excited! I entered the very first challenge over at the Dewey's Read-A-Thon website, and I WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I never win ANYTHING. I enter tons of contests, and I always lose! I won a book once from Persnickety Snark, which still hasn't arrived. But that's it. I once was one of 13 entrants into a contest that had 10 winners. Did I win? Absolutely not.

So anyhow, I'm super psyched about this! :-)

Thanks for all of your encouraging comments!

I liked that book, but it can be a bit slow at the beginning. I hope you enjoy it!

Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
May all the books appeal.
May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

Good luck today!

And congrats on your win!!
