Time Spent Reading These Hours: 55 minutes, 50 minutes, 13 minutes

Comments: I bet you thought I'd fallen asleep. But no! I was just too caught up in Fables to update. I finished Homelands and now I know who the Adversary is! Funny thing is, I got this total sense of deja-vu when it was revealed. So I wonder if it was actually revealed before and I'd forgotten, or if I read a spoiler somewhere.

After I was done with Fables, I finished the lovely Goodbye, Tsugumi. This book reminds me of Lightheaded. I wonder if that's because I know she likes it. But I think it's something about the writing.

I think this might be it as far as reading is concerned for me. My next co-hosting shift starts in an hour and a half, and I'm considering taking a quick nap before that. Did I mention it's almost 5:30am? Because IT IS. Also, above is a picture of my cat having a Sleep-a-thon. It was actually taken yesterday, but I swear he's in the exact same position right now.

Hmm... to take a nap, to visit my fellow readers, or to read a story from The Birds and Other Stories. We'll see.

  3. Cute cat. My kitten is clawing at my legs as I type this. He's proving to be a challenge to train.

    Anyway, I have a late posting challenge at my blog

    http://www.readywhenyouarecb.blogspot.com/

    It's a short story related challenge, which I see you've been reading today, so please stop by.

    Enjoy

  7. I think there was a telling line or two in MARCH OF THE WOODEN SOLDIERS; maybe that's where the deja vu came from?

  8. Nymeth you are so awesome! 5:30? 680 is still a really great page number--that's pretty much what I did last time and I read the whole time! Actually--that might be more than I have now. My brain isn't working. :P

    Doesn't seeing your cat like that make you want to go curl up?? so cuddley.

  15. Glad to hear you've enjoyed Fables so much. The adversary didn't really surprise me, either. I guess they kind of dropped hints and built up to it, so we knew who it was going to be. :)

  19. WOW!!! to you Nymeth :} I only made it until 3:30am then the pages blured, this morning I have a killer migrain and I am going back to sleep. Like deslily I have always had a hard time staying up all night, I'd become shaky in the morning, of course when I was 20 it was easier :P

  23. Oh dear, I just read this post. I'm sure you had fun with the Read-A-Thon (sleepy am sure but fulfilled nonetheless).

    Oh glad you liked Yoshimoto's book. Glad you now know who the Adversary is :) For me the fourth volume was a major hint :P
