RAT: This Is the End, My Friend

So I started falling asleep while reading in the midst of Hour 17, so I went to bed.  But, as I've been doing for the last few RAT's, I woke up before it was over, and finished up.  Here are my final stats...

I read a lot, and made a huge dent in my newest book.  And I want to keep reading, but other duties call.  One of these days, I'll be one of those Read-a-Thon-ers who reads a gazillion books during the RAT, but in order to do that, I'll have to give up these chunksters I'm addicted to, and start reading shorter works.  Sigh.  What a dilemma.  Well, I'm off to finish up my chores, so I can get back to reading...
