I don't know what I will read next. I am still working on Anne's House of Dreams but I don't know that I will have time to finish it.

UPDATED: I am going to keep reading Anne's House of Dreams for a bit and then go to sleep. I'll post a complete update tomorrow. Good night and sweet dreams/ or reading!!!

You have a good amount raised for your charity, and there is still some time left. How are you doing? Are you going to make it the whole 24 hours?? We're almost there!

Trish said...

Good night lovely lady. So many people are crashing. :(

Anne's House Of Dreams was a good choice for the readathon. I think I'll recommend it in the future.
Kudos regarding your charity raising.

Great job! :) I missed out on the 'thon this time, but I really enjoyed reading everyone posts. I especially enjoyed your vlogs - maybe we could have a vlogging mini-challenge in October?

Congrats on all of your reading! I am amazed at how long you stayed up. I didn't get up all that early yesterday and I only made it until 12:30 last night (but I wasn't participating in the readathon of course). Hope you got a good night's sleep!

Congratulations on a successful read-a-thon!

Marg said...

Wow! You did amazingly well! Life got a bit in the way for me this time, but at least I got a couple of books read.

I have been meaning to get hold of the Hugo Cabaret book for a while now.
