Readathon: A Matter Of Minutes

I tried switching to Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid On Earth by Chris Ware but after almost 2 days awake, I can't handle that small print; my eyes are screaming in protest. Obscenities and all; you'd be shocked. Or maybe not.

So I returned to The Witch Of Blackbird Pond and finished it. It's pretty lively-- and Kit is a heroine way ahead of her time (1687) and also slightly ahead of the time that the book was published(1958). I'm glad I finally finished this Newbery winner. And I feel good about finishing another book this late in the game.

In the last five minutes, I'm going to choose a winner for the Korean mini-challenge, which was first presented waaay back in Hour 14.

Right now, I'm going to work on the post-Readathon survey while my mind can still form sentences. Remember my Welch's grape jam? I think that's what's up there now instead of my brain.

Yes, small print is definitely not a good idea for the last hour!

and I need to read all the comments to your Korean post since I knew precious little. THANK YOU! I hope you enjoyed your readathon.

But the incoherent sentences are the best part of the survey! ;)

I loved The Witch of Blackbird Pond when I read it years ago. It made me want to travel to Barbados. Perhaps I should revisit that book. Several people have mentioned it lately. Maybe its a sign...
