BaseCampPic this time is of Base Camp, aka my dining room, where I have spent the majority of the read-a-thon! As you can see, I’ve made a bit of a mess around the table, and my laptop is front and center. :) Finished Fables: Vol. 4. I didn’t like all the war and violence; I find it especially gruesome in graphic novels since I see pictures. No cheerleading this time, but I do plan to return to that for the last two hours! :) We’re 120 minutes from finishing guys: let’s hear a whoop-whoop! ;)

    Wow…you finished up two Fables. And after you “cheating” for me, I didn’t even get to one. Perhaps if I finish up my book, I can still get it started before the end.

    Is it okay if I just say it one more time, Eva, how incredibly awesome and amazing you are!!!!!!!

    Claire, thank you!

    Trish, I know-that pillow’s been saving my back! :)

    Stephanie, thanks!

    Docshona, thanks for stopping by!

    Debi, you should read the Fables soon (you had #5 in your pile, right?)! It was a really good volume. :)

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.
