24 Hour Read a Thon

The Indian in the Cupboard Hour 1  I started reading. The Indian in the Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks.

Hour 2 I am on page 49.  I like it so far.

Hour 3-I'm on page 95. I'm averaging 40 minutes of reading each hour. The book is starting to get interesting. I read it so long ago, I don't remember much. I'm anxious to see what happens next. Enjoy your reading.

Challenge   Choose a food based on the book we are reading. In the book they have a campfire. I would cook Carne Asada on a stick, beans in a dutch oven and smores for desert.

Hour 4-I'm on page 142. It's getting good and I'm coming to the end pretty quickly. It's taking me longer to read than I expected. I'm taking up a lot of time playing on the computer. I'm not reading nearly as much.

Challenge has a Rename the book your reading. I would rename the book  Indian Vs Giants.

Hour 5-I just finished reading the book all 197 pages. It was really good and the time flew by as I read it. I think I have the second one somewhere in my house I might have to dig around and look for it. I'm going to take some time and work on a few challenges.  I hope everyone is having a good time.

 Challenge-Self Portrait

As you can see. I can't draw, especially on the computer. I had fun trying though.

Hour 6  I started reading The Great Mom Swap by Betsy Haynes. I am on page 27.

 The Great Mom Swap 
Challenge A book puzzle.
  Can you guess the book?
 I know not to difficult. I was anxious to get back to my book.

Hour 7 I'm on page 59 of The Great Mom Swap. I can see myself as one of the mom's in the book. I have a daughter the same age as the main characters. I hope my daughter see's me a little better than these girl's see their mom.

Challenge Book covers you like a dislike for the same book.  I chose The Indian in the Cupboard.
 The Indian in the Cupboard I don't care for this cover. It looks like an old boring book and I am a reader that judges a book by it's cover.

The Indian in the Cupboard  This cover really stands out. I like it the best of all I found. I would pick this one up off a shelf. I would like Ultraviolet if I win.

Hour 8  I'm still reading The Great Mom Swap. I'm not getting very far. I'm on page 93.

Hour 9 I'm almost finished reading The Great Mom Swap. I'm on page133. I'm feeling really tired all of a sudden.  I'm might have to drink some caffeine.

Challenge  Yoga poses
I tried all the pictured poses.  My favorite was the corpse pose. I think I could have done it for a very long time. I only did yoga for 5 minutes. I only have 15 pages left in my book. I want to get back.

Missing You (1-800-Where-R-You, #5)  Hour 10  I am now read Missing you by Meg Cabot. I am on page 39.

Hour 11 I am on page108. This book is the best of the series so far. I have already cried, laughed out loud and gotten really angry. I headed to read and take a bath. Talk later.

Challenge  Post picture of the book your reading.  See picture above.

Hour 12 It is half way over and I am still on my third book.  My favorite so far. I am on page 177.
