Hour Fourteen

This is the point in the Read-a-Thon where I start losing track of what hour we're on. Have I really been reading for 14 hours?!?!?!? Hubby bailed on me a while ago, but I kept on keeping on with a magazine and a cookbook, two low-attention-span choices that have helped me stick with it! I'm just about to jump into Upton Sinclair's The Jungle. Not sure if this is the best pick for the Read-a-Thon, but I'm willing to give it a go.

Title of book(s) read since last update: Dead Man's Walk by Larry McMurtry; Glamour magazine; 50 Great Appetizers
Number of books read since you started: one book, one magazine, and one cookbook
Pages read since last update: 160 (magazine and cookbook pages)
Running total of pages read since you started: 736
Amount of time spent reading since last update: 103 minutes
Running total of time spent reading since you started: (keep track of this one to be eligible for a prize!) 689 minutes
Mini-challenges completed: Two - the intro meme and mid-point meme.
Other participants you’ve visited: Danielle at My Favoritest, Fyrefly at Fyrefly's Book Blog (Readers of the Hour - I've decided not to do as much blog-visiting until I get too tired to read).
Prize you’ve won: None, yet.
Foods I've eaten: Leftover Taco Bell Cheesy Double Beef burrito (I LOVE to eat Mexican for breakfast), some Doritos, one Diet Mt. Dew (I don't like regular Mt. Dew anymore), a mini Cadbury Creme Egg, some Orbit gum, a bottle of water, Boston Market macaroni and cheese microwave meal, some Starburst jellybeans, another Diet Mt. Dew, some pretzel sticks, another bottle of water, some pepperoni and pineapple pizza, a Pepsi, another piece of the pizza, some more water.

Reading is fun
Reading is great
Hope you’re able
To stay up late!

Yum, I'm jealous of all that food!
