I am engulfed in The Invention of Hugo Cabret, it is amazing, the charcoal drawings are so good!! You all are so sweet, I am so happy you liked my vlog. Francisca the chicken says she will sign autographs if you slip her some mula :)

After I finish this book I don't know what to start next. Maybe The Book Shop? I don't know yet.

What are you reading? Are you planning on going all night?

somebody else reviewed the Hugo Cabret book! I'm glad to hear you are liking it, too. CHEERS!

Laura said...

It's great you are in the middle of a really good book! I'm also glad to see people are still awake!

Anonymous said...'s morning here :)

Ti said...

Heading into the 20th hour I am starting to feel it, but not really that bad off yet. Sort of frustrated with my reading choices though. Will have to think about them more next time I do this.

I like what I am reading but I spent a lot of time on sort of slow-ish books.

Hope you're still going really well. Love the chicken. :)

Man my reading is coming along SO slowly it's not even funny. I feel like I'm in first grade again, I mean I've read 90 pages in the last 5 hours. Pathetic!!! It doesn't help that I keep having to keep myself from sleeping.

But look at you! You're rockin' it!! Good job!!

Yes, Hugo was a big hit with the kids at my school. The pictures went so perfectly with the text.

Eva said...

That's great you've raised so much for charity! I'm definitely going to try to see it through for the end. :D

Trish said...

I think I'm gonna have to go watch that video again. Glad you're liking Hugo Cabret--I'd love to read that one.

katrina said...

Glad to here Hugo Cabret is good. I can't watch your vlog as my computers speakers stopped working randomly this morning - hopefully thet'll fix themselves when I turn it of later then I can watch the chicken.
Good luck with the last 4 hours
