Reading Madness Hour 19 (1 a.m. CST)

By October 10, 2010 culture No Comments

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am now reading with two of my lodge ladies who thought it would be fun to stay up all night to read. (I am blessed to have book-loving friends! These are the gals I have gone to Anna Maria Island with; we read on the beach for a week straight. It is fabulous!)

We’re going strong for the 19th hour of the read-a-thon—we have toffee nut coffee and plenty of snacks, and we’re camped out on the screened-in porch, enjoying the cool night breeze and the mournful cry of an owl and the soothing buzz of the crickets.

Each of us has been reading nonfiction already this evening, so does that count for Susan’s mini-challenge? Over at Scraps of Life, she challenges us to start reading a nonfiction title during the read-a-thon . . . so I guess we’re ahead of the game?
