Readathon: Hour 9

Another 21 pages of The Elegance of the Hedgehog. I will attribute some of the diminishment of my reading speed to the sophistication of the prose. After all, the Ms. Barbery includes allusion to philosophical phenomenology. However, I am also becoming quite fatigued. I decided to rest my eyes for five minutes, so I set a timer and laid down on the couch. I promptly fell asleep, so it is a good thing I set the timer. It might be time for another walk around the block, or something else to get my blood flowing, perhaps some push ups. Anyway, my grand total is 436 pages in 9 hours. I have completed three books and am working on my fourth. Until the next hour ...
