  1. Best of luck today! Hope you get a lot of reading done and get closer to your goal! Have fun!

  2. Oh no, I'm sorry about the headache. I hope it goes away soon.

  3. That's too bad about your headache. I had a killer one the very first read-a-thon I did and it made it hard to concentrate. Hope your drugs kick in soon! :)

  4. I hope you get a good nap in. Headaches are the worst, hopefully you'll be feeling better soon.

  5. Sadness! Sending cheerful, healing voodoo your way (said voodoo involves me eating ice cream in your honor. I suffer for you).

  6. Ugh. I've been dealing with reading while suffering from a headache all morning, as well. Good for you for taking care of yourself and getting some rest. I hope you are enjoying your time reading!

  7. Will you be reading all night? I'm going to try. I just finished four cups of coffee.

    I'm glad your headache's gone. That'll help with your reading.

  8. Congrats on finishing a book! Here's hoping you get in a good night of reading. :)

  9. I crashed around 1 am on the Dewey Read-a-Thon. And that was after four cups of coffee at 8:30 pm! Hopefully we can both stay up longer.

  10. Yum! I wish my husband had brought home pizza. You've done really great! Way to go!


Thanks for visiting!
