         I'm on my second book of the day

              finished: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - Rebecca Skloot 

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?

        If I get to it, The Many Lives & Secret Sorrows of Josephine B. - Sandra Gulland

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?

         I switched days with a few co-workers in order to have the weekend off

         Only a few--nothing too time consuming

         How little actual reading I'm getting done.  I'm enjoying reading many blogs and participating in the challenges.

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

         No.  Everything is great!

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?    Try to get more rest the night before.  

9. Are you getting tired yet?

         Yes, yesterday was a busy day and I didn't get much sleep


10. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered?

        No, I'm new to readathons and the only tips I know have come from experienced readathoners
