1) What are you reading right now?
I'll Have What She's Having: My Adventures in Celebrity Dieting by Rebecca Harrington - I am loving it, and the author's had me laughing out loud quite a few times. Celebrities have some very strange food tastes . . .
2) How many books have you read so far?
I've finished four books so far:
Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson
Visitations by Jenny Bates (poetry)
Catwings by Ursula K. Le Guin
The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl
I also read the first two Hans Christian Anderson fairy tales in the Mina Lima illustrated edition - The Little Mermaid and The Nightingale. I loved them both! I 'm enjoying Anderson's original fairy tales quite a bit more than the Grimm's original fairy tales I've tried. Anderson has more of a whimsical style that I really like.
3) What book are you most looking forward to in the second half of the Read-a-thon?
Preludes & Nocturnes (Volume 1 of the Sandman graphic novel series) by Neil Gaiman
It's midnight now, so not sure how much longer I'll be staying up, but hopefully I can at least finish the night with a graphic novel, as is my usual Dewey readathon tradition.
4) Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
I had a 2-hour disruption in the afternoon - had to see about getting a new charger for my computer, and took the dogs for walk . . .
Despite not actually having many disruptions, this readathon really seemed to fly by, especially the first 10 hours or so . . . I remember feeling this way during the last readathon too.
5) What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
How little time I actually have for blog updates and visiting other readers . . . there are so many good books I want to get to and so little time . . . I wish this could be a 48-hour readathon! LOL! ;-)
