Twenty-two hours in

About an hour ago Jefferson sat bolt upright, then got up off the couch. When I gently suggested that he head up to bed, he looked at the clock (5 a.m.) and said, “It’s too late.”

I asked him if he was up for the day, and when he said yes, gently teased him that the readathon was still on a for a few more hours, and if he wasn’t careful, I was going to pass him in pages read. “No! Not gonna happen!” he replied, and marched himself back to the couch and grabbed a book.

So, yeah. He’s way ahead again.

Jefferson finished The Martian and made more progress in Scribblenauts, but then fell back asleep, for all his protesting.

I finished Three Cups of Deceit, started and finished The Duel, and then started Eden Springs.

The Duel Eden Springs

Guys, I’m so tired. But with only two hours left to go, how do I not attempt a heroic push to the end? And then sleep forever.

Our completely ludicrous totals so far:

Jen’s cumulative totals:
Books finished: 6
Pages read: 1371

Jefferson’s cumulative totals:
Books finished: 3
Pages read: 1448

I am way too tired to think of a clever way to tell you about our fundraising page for First Book, which is here.
