Mid Event Survey #Readathon

How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired?
I'm doing very well! I haven't been as strict as i've been in the past about readathoning so I'm not as tired.
Mostly because I took a nap when I wanted to. I'm also as caffeinated as always, so i'm good to go for a while.

What have you finished reading so far?
I finished The Alienist and Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls. I'm currently in the middle of The Fun Parts and The Distracted Preacher. I hope to finish both before the end of the readathon.

What is your favorite read so far?
Since I've only finished two books it's not a very hard choice. I really loved Diabetes with Owls. I love Sedaris and this new collection is a breath of fresh air!

What about your favorite snacks?
I was dumb and didn't stock up on snacks. I did go out for a cream freeze and then had ribs for dinner, so I think those make up for my lack of carby treats.

The major problem I've been having with today's readathon is that I've already been reading like a maniac for weeks. When I first made my book list for today It included A Map of Tulsa, Looking for Alaska, The Horla, The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards and The Last Runaway. All of these are books I have read in the last 10 days.  So my reading list for today started off much shorter than I wanted it to be, and when I finished Diabetes with Owls I had to pause and regroup with some fresh book ideas.

However I will be pausing for the Red Wings game. This is Michigan and we are serious about our hockey.

Seriously, Wings, don't let me down.

I just got the new Sedaris for Audible. I love listening to him reading his work. All the food talk on these is making me really hungry, and I didn't prep my snacks very well!

Yes we are serious about Hockey and CONGRATS Wings for going to the play offs for 22 years running!
