  9. Well, now I feel a little guilty...you managed to come by and see me a million times on DIAL-UP, and I didn't make it over here once. I am glad you had so much fun during the Read-a-Thon. Wish I would have been able to stay up long enough to do your mini-challenge! The answers were great! Sleep well today, you've earned it.

  11. Congratulations on finishing, Staci...I remember hour 18 last October being tough for me too - I think at about that time your brain starts to fry :) You did great!

  15. Awesome job, Staci. I just couldn't stay up any later. I tried, but commiserate with the older body thing. I fell asleep and didn't wake up til 8:00 a.m. this morning. And I'm still tired. Thanks for cheer leading too! :)

  19. Wow, reading, cheering, and hosting a mini-challenge--thanks for all you did to make the Readathon a success! I love your challenge and was sorry I didn't have a chance to participate (I felt the need to focus on reading in the evening) so I'll do mine now:

    You know you're participating in a Readathon when you're holding your son while your husband removes a splinter from his foot, and during a brief pause in son's screaming you ask, "Do you mind if I read during this?"

  20. Congrats! I'm impressed :)

    I'm sorry I wasn't able to participate, but hope to next time. It sounds like great fun!

  23. Can't wait to hear how you like If I Stay!

  24. I'd be interested to see more about what you have to say about the books you read. Sounds like you had a good time. I hope to participate more in the next read-a-thon.

  27. Oh right, the past weekend was the read-a-thon! 3.25 books on one day is very respectable. I was just reading one book on and off at the beach. :)
