Read-A-Thon first 4 hours

Well, I did not get in as much reading as what I had hoped. Instead of reading at 8AM, I chatted with friends at the bagel shop.

I squeezed in 15 minutes of reading ad read the first chapter of Stormy Vows, a whole 10 pages. Then I had to go deliver the caramel apples and run errands for my furry cats (they have to eat too).

As soon as I arrived home, I whipped up some cookie dough and started to read some more of my first book. Since 10:15AM, I have managed to read another 81 pages in between cookie dough scoops and bake time.

Now, I have to pack up to go over to Borders Bookstore in Nashua. I'll be there in the cafe for a little while before the actual book event which starts at 2PM.

Wish me luck on finishing Stormy Vows before the signing. Next up is Tempest at Sea.

If you follow me or the other Read-A-Thon participants on twitter use the hash tag #readathon and give us a shout out of cheer.

It makes me feel so much better to know that you too have life getting in the way with your reading progress. Are you going to be up all night with us? I had so hoped to get some @dkrobbins encouragement in the middle of the night...LOL!I hope you had a great event at the bookstore!!!
