Progress Report:

Looks like I’m going to hit the 1,000 page mark again! I really didn’t think I was going to do it this time, but somehow it looks like this is going to be my best readathon yet as far as page count goes. I’m getting sleepy again…anyone else out there feeling the frequent yawns coming on? I LOVED Fables Vol. 4…I can’t believe what Bill Willingham puts his readers through!! Oh yeah…he goes there. Now I wish I had volume 5 with me!! Looks like has picked Skellig by David Almond as my next read!! Yay!! I get to read a Printz book and I finally get to read some David Almond 🙂

  1. Congrats on hitting the 1,000 page mark and great cause.

  2. Awesome job, Chris!! I have Fables Vol. 3 just waiting for me at home. I really need to get to it soon!! I have Skellig on my TBR as well.

  3. You are doing an amazing job! And that’s such a great organization to give money to! I can’t wait to read more of the Fables books. I read the prequel and it was fabulous. Skellig is amazing, too. I read that one when I actually was a young adult 😉 I wonder if I would think different things about it now? Perhaps! Keep it up!

  4. Keep on going on!! Hope you enjoy what’s left of the readathon.

  5. I am so impressed with you guys that can read so many pages! I’ve been a very unofficial participant, but have jumped around visiting read-a-thon bloggers today. Since I’m actually still up (not sure how much longer THAT will last) I thought I’d make a last round and cheer for y’all! Go Chris! Happy reading :o)

  6. WOw – 1000 pages! So proud of you! Keep it up 🙂

  7. Oh yes indeedily-do, I am getting mighty tired, too. (Which is probably quite obvious after that sentence, huh? Yikes.)
