Good on ;you for participating. All non-fiction. I usually space those out with a few fiction in between.

Great job! I'm impressed with the totally nonfiction read-a-thon. That would be fun for me to try some day!

I totally agree about graphic novels -- they are great during the long hours of the readathon!

Way to go...I'm terrible at these things because when I finally fall asleep with a book in my hand I'm out for several hours...kinda frustrating.

Congratulations! All non fiction and three in 24 hours is pretty impressive.

Now I've got to go find the post on the untitled, unpublished thesis. I love those.
