Readathon Hour 16

This hour I completed The Moon Opera and started Disquiet. I am starting to get sleepy now, so my reading pace has declined significantly. But, that's OK. I remember this from previous readathons. It's temporary, like the Wall in marathons. You just have keep pushing until you get your second wind.

I also completed the Wisdom of Aging Mini-Challenge hosted by Care. In addition, Lynn asks for your favorite five books from your childhood in the Give Me Five Mini-Challenge. Well here are my favorites:

  1. The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

  2. Danny, the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl

  3. Robin Hood by Howard Pyle

  4. The Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell

  5. Any Choose Your Own Adventure or Fighting Fantasy book.

Running stats: 715 pages and 4 books completed in 9:23:16

Thank you so much for playing along! Very Hungry Caterpillar is such a great classic. It seems like preschoolers do so much with it, but my 2 year old just likes to look at the page with all of the food on it and make me call out the names of each item. Way to go making it so far into the read-a-thon!!
