I was so looking forward to participating in the Dewey's 24 hour readathon this weekend .. except the entire family got knocked out this week by a horrible stomach bug :( N and the boys suffered the worst of it, but I'm now feeling the effects as well. We're all hobbling towards health, but I think it'll be slow progress. There is no chance of taking part in the readathon, but perhaps I'll have some energy for some cheerleading later on in the day.

For now, I'm keeping my feet up and a book handy. With bookmarks in case I pass out. And I've just picked up two books from my original readathon pile, Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson and What My Girlfriend Doesn't Know by Sonya Sones. I'll be thinking of you all. Good luck!


  1. That really stinks! Hope you all feel better soon!

  2. Good luck with all the reading! Sounds like a good way to get over being sick! :)

  3. Ahhhh.... feel better. Maybe try listening to an audio if books are bothering your eyes.

  4. Keep with the reading
    You will go far on this day
    Take time to enjoy

  5. Argh! Hope you start to feel better soon.

    Enjoy the read-a-thon! As much as you can!

  6. Hope you all get better soon! Sneak some reading in.

  7. Hope you get feeling better soon! I hope you were able to read a little during this read-a-thon time.

  8. Feel better!!!

    I hate to admit it but there have been days I have wished I was just sick so I could stay home and read and sleep and read and sleep all day.

  9. Hi Julie - I am feeling better thanks, and I managed all of .. 42 pages! Ha!

  10. Darren - I am feeling better, thank you. Only managed to read very little during the day and now I'm just catching up on other people's posts. Maybe next time!
