What another fun Read-a-Thon! Thanks to everyone who visited.  It was great "Thonning" with you all! 


  1. The Fault in Our Stars was so very good. I'm not sure I could handle reading it during a Readathon though, I'd howl like a baby at the sadder parts, especially as the hour got later. (I get emotional when I'm sleep deprived.)

  2. Congratulations, girl! You did a totally outstanding job reading, and I'm so excited for you that you won a prize!!!! Awesomeness all around!!! Thank you so much for being my read-a-thon buddy once again, I couldn't do one without you! Now go and get some much-deserved sleep, and I'll see you in October if not before. :)

  3. You did a great job. I took more than a nap, I'm afraid. And congrats on the prize!

  4. Oh Yay for winning a prize!!
    It looks like you did great!

    1. Thanks, Wendy! I missed you. I'll look forward to seeing you in October!

  5. I'm so glad you joined us for the Read-a-Thon, Sherry Ann! It was great having you. Enjoyed your enthusiasm. And great job if you just napped during that time period! I flaked out after my co-hosting shift, around 3:30am. Whew!

    We'll post the next Read-a-Thon date today or tomorrow. :)
