I am so far having a great time, but found that my eyes weren't moving quickly in the begining, and my brain wasn't absorbing words. things are starting to pick up now. my most amusing moment from the last hour and a half was when DH started to tip over because he had fallen asleep. it might be a LOONNNGGGG 24 hours ;)

Aww bless that they nearly fell over! I hope you are enjoying Breaking Dawn, it divided a lot of fans but I loved it.

I hope you have a great day with the read-a-thon. I'm going out for a change of pace. My boyfriend needs to run to Wal-Mart, and I'm going to ride along and read in the car and grab some food to eat when I get back.

Have fun!

Becky said...

I hope you have fun reading :)

nfmgirl said...

I hope you have fun with the read-a-thon! I'm going out with my boyfriend for a change of venue, and will read in the car while he is in the store.

Have fund and good luck with the challenges!

Lexie said...

ah wow Breaking Dawn! One day I will have to finish that and not let what I've heard about it taint my perceptions...

Irish said...

Loved your coffee consumed & time slept tally's...might need to pilfer those for myself. lol

Good luck with your reading!

Kristi said...

I love your update - especially cups of coffee consumed!

Morph said...

So what are you going to read next? I liked both Middlesex and Time Traveler's Wife.

I'm reading 84, Charing Cross Road and I ADORE it. I think any book lover will!

Fyrefly said...

My eyes weren't cooperating right when I woke up, either! I'd given myself 15 minutes between the alarm and the start of the read-a-thon to get my brain adjusted, but it was still a slow start. Hope the rest of the day goes better!

Reverie said...

awwww those darn slow eyes.

yay for breaking dawn.... crazyness huh?

ferrywoman said...

Good luck! I myself have to have about at least 10 pages to read before things start to pick up. And I know, it's really going to be a long 24 hours. ;)

Jenn & The Cats of Castle Coull said...

I'm not a morning person so reading this early for me is an adventure. Enjoy!

shelburns said...

You're doing great! Keep up the good work.

Laza said...

You're doing good with time online. It is so easy to get sucked in!

♔ jessica.marie said...

Awwwww I love how you list your "coffees consumed"!

SFP said...

Good luck to you. I've managed so far without an caffeine--don't want to get jangly too early--but I think that's about to change.

melissa said...

Wow, way to start with a long book! Good luck completing Breaking Dawn. I don't think I could have chosen one with so many pages, so good for you!

Drea said...

What do you think of Breaking Dawn? Most people I talk to either love or hate it. It's def. not my fav. of the series

learningtoread said...

I'm so interested to know what you think about Breaking Dawn. And dadgum, that's a huge TBR pile!

Kimmy said...

Happy reading!!

tanabata said...

The Twilight books are such compulsive reading, aren't they? I found Jacob's section in Breaking Dawn a bit too long actually but it picked up after that. Happy reading!

Kim said...

You are doing great! I need to get off the computer and get reading! Have a great day and I hope the read-a-thon experience is all you want it to be.

Chris said...

Hey Lissa! Congrats on reader of the hour! Breaking Dawn eh? I've read Twilight and really want to get to the rest!! One of these days.

Nise' said...

Sometimes you just need a cat nap! LOL. Happy reading.

Lorin said...

Great update! I'm matching you on the coffee - but that's my usual intake! Looks like you've got some great books on your list. Have fun today!

infiniteshelf said...

Hey, you're doing great! :D
I had a slow beginning, too, but as time goes it seems I read quicker! Maybe we just needed to wake up ;)

Carl V. said...

I had a few sleepy eyed moments similar to DH during the first 45 minutes or so of reading. Pepsi-fueled and into a very humorous book, I am feeling much more awake at present. I'm glad you have gotten into the groove and hope your day continues to be one that sees you alert and deeply engrossed in fantastic reading!!!

debnance said...

Good thing I am not keeping track of cups of coffee drunk! Too many to count!

Keep going!

Carrie said...

infogoddess said...

Tara said...

I had trouble starting too! I don't usually read at this time of day.

Eva said...

Are you reading with your husband? Fun!

I was so nervous I wouldn't get any sleep last night, but I ended up having some great dreams that really calmed me down, lol.

Jen said...

Good luck with the reading, I'm concentrating on my knitting and thinking of doing some dying instead of reading today

Trish said...

24 hours will go faster than you think. Well, 20 of them will--the last four are brutal. :P Good luck!!

Amanda said...

Woo-hoo, good job!

Laura said...

It seems to take a bit of time to get settled into reading for long periods of time. Good luck and happy reading!

Amanda said...

I love the Twilight series. Sigh.

I just looked at your list of hopefuls and you have some real chunksters in there! YAY for getting the TBR pile down a bit!

I wish I'd slept better last night, but a migraine kept me up. I'm making progress, though slow. Glad to see you're enjoying yourself!
