4:00 am Dewey Update- and the point where I call it quitsy

Alas, 3 and 2/3's of a book in I need to head to bed.  I'm getting the fuzzy eyeball syndrome.  And am faced with this very sad looking Baxter who really does not understand why we're still up but who doesn't want to abandon me like Cheddar and Thurman who very officially went to bed 4 hours ago.

Deliah is also here with me, passed out cold, but looks really no different than the 2am update.  I'll save you the picture.

So my official stats (baring a fake reconvene tomorrow morning. who am i kidding? i'm sleeping in!) are 3 books completed
An Abundance of Katherine's
Hugo Cabaret
Sisters of Glass
and 2/3'rds of The Name of the Star (page 214 of 372 sooo close!)
Total pages read: 1123
Rough hours reading: 19? It is late, my math may be wrong. Anyhoots I started at 9am and am wrapping up at 4am the following day.
Snacks eaten:
Veggies and dip, Chocolate zucchini loaf, fruit and cheese platter, pretzels, assorted spiced nuts, salted carmel cheese cake, jalapeno egg casserole, and chocolate and fuzzy peaches.  Not in that order.
Fun had? Immeasurable. Thanks for that Shingles!

Good luck to those of you carrying on.


  1. I hope that you enjoyed the readathon. Shame you couldn't make it to the end though :( But I understand. I had to take a nap earlier today. Hope to see you next time!

  2. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who couldn't hold out for the whole 24 hours. I read a whole lot less than you did -- only 428 pages in 1.5 books. But I still had mucho fun. See you in October!!
