On page 224 of "The Secret Society of the Pink Crystal Ball"

  1. SUSHI!!!!! That is what I have been looking forward to most!!! You are burning through those pages mom! (Not literally I hope) 844 wow. We need to keep each other awake now because I have the feeling we're going to get tired real fast!

  2. Time flies when you're having fun
    I can't believe we're halfway done
    You're going great, you're doing fine
    You'll finish that book in almost no time!

    I'm sorry about the official cheerleaders. I'm sad to say that the organizer this year isn't very experienced and there wasn't a lot of publicity. :-/ I hate that!

    Best wishes for the rest of the event.

  3. 844 is a great chunk of pages! Congrats and keep it up!


  4. You are doing so well! Good luck with the rest of readathon and have lots of fun!

  5. Wow, 844 pages?! That's awesome! Keep up the great reading!

  6. You are doing great! Next time, I will have more snacks :) Happy Reading. I will continue to check back!

  7. Good thing you got a big stack from the library, the way you're tearing through the books! I've been snacking so much, I probably won't be eating dinner until 10:00 or 11:00! Trail mix, fruit, cheese & crackers, and I still have sushi in the fridge - think I will save that for a late, late (or early?) snack.

  8. You are FLYING through those books! I really hope you love Matched :)

  9. I'm not a cheerleader, but I'm taking a time out to do a little cheering. Good luck as we head into the last nine hours! :)

  10. I had sushi for lunch so enjoy. Have fun reading!
