  1. Ah, there's the chair I just commented on in your previous post! Looks like a perfect place to camp out for the read-a-thon. :)

  2. Looks like you are well on your way to jump-starting your reading on the weekends! Hope it keeps up! (And, yes, I hate lawnblowers, too. Also, the neighbour next door that goes out several times a day and has to leave rubber behind EVERY TIME! I would hate to buy his tires...)

  3. Leafblowers drive me crazy! Hope you can read nicely anyway...

  4. I agree on leafblowers. Hope it didn't mess with your reading rhythm. have fun!

  5. Hope you enjoy the rest of the read-a-thon. Keep it up!

    Great job so far! I hate leaf blowers too. Annoying. Happy reading!

  8. You are doing great. I got a little thrown off schedule this am, but I’m back on track now. Keep up the good work!

    I will surely need a nap a bit later unless, I walk around the house constantly until I fall over from exhaustion...LOL

  9. Nat - That chair used to be considered my husband's but now that Annie has taken over the couch, I've taken over the chair. ;)

    Kailana - Lucky for me (or the yard guy!), the leaf-blowing noise didn't last too long. :) Thanks for visiting during the day. It was fun to get so many comments. :)

    Lenore - Thanks for cheering me on. Much appreciated!!

    Aarti - You cheerleaders rock! Thanks for visiting my blog.

    Valerie - It was a blast. I plan to join in on all the fun next April. Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment.

    Karinlibrarian - Thank you. I love our reading room (aka the living room), too. It's very cozy and quiet. Just how we like it. :)

    Millymarie - Thanks for stopping in with your comment and words of encouragement. It made a world of difference to get away from my books and check in on my blog comments. Cheerleaders rock!

    Diane - I have a feeling I'll be in bed very early tonight. I didn't stay up too late last night, but I'm mentally exhausted.
