Dewey's Read-a-Thon Update Post

Hey all I have started the Read-a-Thon!!

I'll be using this post to update my progress.
  I won't be able to read for the next 24 hours straight, but I'm going to read as much as I can until noon tomorrow (yes I know that' s more than 24, but I just wnat to get a ton of reading done!)

Update 1: I am half way through We Are Not Eaten By Yaks.  Very cute book! There will be a ton of kids that I can recommend this one too!.

Update 2: I finished We Are Not Eaten.  Super cute and lots of twists and turns. After a break to take the kids to the pumpkin patch, I'm now reading Tempted (House of the Night).  This series is my ultimate guilty pleasure.  My pure non-thinking just for fun reading. I've got next book in the series as well, so if I need that later in the read-a-thon I can take it out.

Update 3: Ok I finished Tempted, and I'm onto The Secret Year.  Some day when I a do a read-a-thon I'm going to lock the doors and not let anyone near me because they always pull me away from reading!  Now I did say I was going until noon today, so I have about 3 hours left.  I know it's cheating and longer than 24 hours, but hey I'm okay with that.

Final Update:  I finished The Secret Year.  Good book! But frustrating too.  Ok I'm out of time.  I only read three books, but hey that's three books I didn't have read before I started ;)  I'd like to say I'll read some more this afternoon, but I have other things I need to get done, and I'd like to spend some time writing.

Thanks for the encouragement!!!
