  1. Wow! What a great plan! I’m going to be checking in here as the day goes to make sure you’re not feeling alone.

    What have you liked about the day so far?

  2. Hope you’re still doing great with the Read-A-Thon! Here’s a little inspiration for you:

    “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”
    ― Oscar Wilde

  3. Back again – just checking in. How’s your stack coming along? Any favourite’s that you’d like to mention?

    I’m on Infinite Kung-Fu – not really a serious read, but nicely entertaining. 🙂

    Another quote to keep you going:

    “Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul.”
    ― Joyce Carol Oates

    #TeamFox (of all things cheering)

  4. I’m making my way around again – seeing who’s still hanging on and who’s been reasonable and actually gone to sleep. 🙂

    How’s the Devil in your Pew treating you?

    Went for walk? – Check
    Had a Shower? – Check
    Yawned a billion times? – Check

    A quote reasonable for this hour.::grin::

    “Sleep is good, he said, And books are better.”
    ― George R.R. Martin
