  1. Oh, my! I only got in 9.5 total reading hours, falling asleep sometime between 12 and 1 am last night and getting up this morning for another 1/2 or so .. 758 pages. This was fun, though, and I would definitely do it again!

    I'm so proud of you! You did a great job! :)

    You also read some good books I want to get into some time in "Rage" and "Nightshade"!
