OctopusOk, I think I’m working out a reading-cheerleading-cohosting rhythm. :) And I was SO spot on to save Fables for now! I’m loving Vol. 3, and can’t wait to read some more. :) Picture is of the cute Octopus bookmark I was sent with Book by Book as prize during last read-a-thon. I took that a couple hours ago; now he’s living in Storybook Love. (I’m usually an unremorseful dogear-er, but I NEVER dogear graphic novel/memoir pages.)

Thanks so much for all the encouragement guys! We can make it!

    Oh my goodness girl! How can you do all three at once? I’m just having troubles drinking my Mountain Dew and listening to music at the same time!

    Debi, LOL-it’s a graphic novel! And you know during the read-a-thon I speed read! :p I don’t do it during any other time, though, because it’s not as enjoyable.

    Stephanie, thanks!

    Velvet, I haven’t gotten to that one yet!

    Trisha, thanks!

    Trish, LOL. I divide up each hour. ;)

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
