Wow, so many hours done already. I must admit that I've not done as well as I'd hoped. Doctor Who was a no-go; due to time complications there was no spare TV to watch it in time, so me and my fiancée watched Ugly Betty for a little bit (the distraction cost me more time than I expected). So here's some updated stats:
Current book: Feast of Souls by Celia Friedman
Pages read since last update: 60
Total time spent reading: No idea (forgot to set my iPod stopwatch, dagnabit)
# of coffees: 3 (soon to be a fourth)
Here's my entry to the mini-challenge from over at Midnight Book Girl. My 100 word read-a-thon story is set 6 hours in the future (It's now 8pm GMT). The title is An Ode to Coffee:
It was only after I had headbutted the book for the fourth time that I realised I needed some help. Slowly, I peeled the sorcery and murder from my dead face and stood up. A relay of cracks and crunches confirmed that I was most definitely not comfortable. I reached over to where the tall mug of liquid lightning stood, the silent destroyer of my increasing narcolepsy. I threw back my head and swallowed the contents in one, and instantly every neuron, every synapse fired into life. I pulsed with new-found energy. 200 pages in an hour? Bring it on.
I just read a pretty brutal 'love' scene that was damn intense. Rape and sorcery do not mix, but it makes for good reading, I suppose. My goal in this read-a-thon is to have read at least Feast of Souls and Living with Ghosts. Good luck to everyone who is participating! Stay tuned for my A-Z of blogging post later this evening!
