April Read-a-Thon 2010 - How I'm Doing

12:15 AM
This is it, book bloggers and blogettes! I am about to start my Read-a-Thon reading! The plan is as follows: It is 12:15 AM here, and I plan to start reading by 12:30. By then, I'm gonna check out the Read-a-Thon page, update my Twitter and perhaps visit a few blogs. Then when I get tired, I'll update this blog post and go to sleep. As soon as I wake up, I am going to make myself a cup of coffee and continue until 3 PM, which is when the Read-a-Thon ends in this timezone. Many thanks for the wonderful cheerleaders and their comment love!

UPDATE #1

Reading Time:
2h10min (12.30am-2.40am)
Book Read:

I now plan to get a good night's sleep and continue reading in the morning.

Special thanks to all the fantastic cheerleaders and commenters! I'll get back to you ASAP.

UPDATE #2

The April 2010 Read-a-Thon is now over! Thank you to the people who organized it, as well as everyone who's been cheering me on. I'll visit your blogs in the near future and thank everyone individually. I'm going to go eat now and then post a Read-a-Thon recap post!

In a Story Book

At night when sunshine goes away,
And it's too dark for me to play,
I like to come inside, and look
For new friends in a story book.

A story is a special thing
The ones that I have read
They do not stay inside the books
They stay inside my head.

Enjoy the rest of the read-a-thon.

Have a good sleep!

Don't let those eyes droop
head out on the stoop
get some fresh air
before heading back to that chair
pick up your book
take another look
read, read, read
