  1. Whoop! way to go wendy!!


  2. Well done for keeping awake, I HAD to sleep I dont know how you did it. Well done for completing 4 books as well.

  3. Sorry that you didn't feel as supported at the end. I had originally signed up to cheer for 4 hours but ended up cheering for 10. I spent much more time online yesterday than I ever do. It was fun to watch you all in your progress but it's a little sad to think that some of you felt less supported as the readathon progressed.

    Great job!

  4. Congrats on completing your readathon! Are you going to have a sleep-a-thon today? wink, wink!

  5. Yay good job! That time where there was no cheerleading is when I was locked out :( I'm sorry I couldn't help more! I always read your blog even if I'm not there right when it's posted so don't worry.

  6. I'll have to add exopsed to my list. Great job in the read-a-thon. You're a real trooper!

  7. Yes, if you find that person with a whip, send him over here!

    It was quiet after ten or so. It would be interesting to see how many people were Readathoning by the hour....

    Congratulations! You did well!

  8. Great readathon for you! :) You did so well on your page count!

  9. Choosing all YA books sounds like a great strategy! Congrats!

    Thanks for cheering for me! Looking forward to many more reviews, read-a-thons and book-related extravaganzas!

  10. Great idea on the whip! I need it too.

  11. Wow, you did so awesome! Sorry I wasn't around to cheer you on. I ended up with a major migraine all weekend.
