SecretStashI’ve definitely hit my stride Dividing things evenly between reading, cheering and hosting/blogging is working. :D Pic this time is of my saving grace: the stash of graphic novels I’ve been waiting to read for weeks! lol It’s 6 volumes of Fables, Skim, and Gray Horses. Click to make it larger!

Everyone who’s still awake, keep up the awesomeness! We’re so close to being done now, we can taste it. :D

    Graphic novels sounds like a great idea! I think I’ll do some more cheering and grab Fun Home as a re-read.

    You and the other challenge hosts have all done a great job with this readathon! I think I’m ready to go to sleep though…..even though there are only three hours left.

    Katrina, thank you!

    Andi, I had been resisting the temptation to jump into them early. ;)

    Memory, thank you!

    Vishy, thanks!

    Kate, thank you!

    Trish, oh-I’d love to reread Fun Home. It was so good the first time around!

    Valerie, thank you!

    Bybee, it was hard to resist reading them earlier, but I just focused on remembering how tired I always am towards the end. ;)

    Hagelrat, thanks!

    Melissa, thank you!

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.
