12 Hours In!

The Chocolate Rose by Laura Florand (my thoughts)
The Problem with Being Slightly Heroic by Uma Krishnaswami (review will post closer to release)
The Cadet of Tildor by Alex Lidell (review coming soon)
Secrets of Shakespeare's Grave by Deron R. Hicks (my thoughts)

Number of Hours Reading: 10 hours (I'm pretty impressed I hit it exactly. I wasn't even trying.)

Number of Pages Read: 1,436

Time on Writing Reviews: 1 hour; 5 minutes

Time on Social Networking/Commenting on Blogs: 25 minutes

Time Spent Sleeping: 0 !!!!!!

So I read 4/5 books in my first goal. AND managed to not fall asleep. The books were too interesting. The no sleeping thing is over for now. Things are starting to blurr and I'm feeling woozy. I'm going to take a nap, but I will be back to update again this evening after getting some more reading in hopefully.

Goals by next update:
The Kingdom of Little Wounds by Susann Cokal
Hound Dog True by Linda Urban
City of a Thousand Dolls by Miriam Foster


  1. Wow! You're cranking out the books! I'm stuck here at work, but I spent 30 minutes at lunch reading, which was VERY hard to stop. Of course, I'm also listening to an audiobook to and from work. When I get home tonight, I can pick up the book again.

    1. I'm envious of all of you who can do audiobooks. I just can't pat attention and end up getting bored.

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

  3. Wow! That's an impressive first 10 hours! I have The Cadet of Tildor on my TBR pile for this weekend as well--can't wait to see your review. It's on my mental list of 'to reads' for tomorrow!

    1. I'll look forward to seeing your thoughts too. (I really enjoyed it. More than I expected to.)
