AAAAAHHHH... PEACE AND QUIET - a-thon update

Allright, BOTH kids in bed, and husband watching Monty Python.  Life is gooooood.  I have not managed to do any reading with supper and stuff, but we did do a family game of hide and seek which is sooo cute as our 2 year old is just learning how to properly play.  I mean SO cute.  Beyond cute.  B.C.

Then our toddler went to bed, and we had our traditional game night with our 9 year old.  We played one game of Harry Potter board game, and then a few rounds of Connect Four.

I am now FINALLY going to get to some SERIOUS reading,people!  I have Crispin in my hand and it's gotten to the super exciting bit and so that should keep me awake.  My only thing is my favourite place to read is IN BED, which is a danger zone for tonight, but I can't help myself.  It's just so darn comfy, you know what I mean?  I also didn't really plan to much in terms of yummy snacks, I thought about it, but didn't, and now I am wishing I had some... I'll have to live vicariously thru some a-thoners treats I guess!  So, tell me, did you buy snacks just for yourself for tonight?  And if so, what were they!

On my immediate roster is the Avi book, and then I am going to read Animal Dreams by Barbara Kingsolver if the mood so strikes me.  But in the little pile by my bed is also A Series of Unfortunate Events book One by Lemony Snicket which I have never read.

Cookies! Chips! Sugar! Things that will make me crash, it was a bad idea :D.

You are really doing great! Isn't the time flying by? I am starting to feel exhaustion setting in, but blog-hopping is helping. Keep up the good work.

Exciting books are good late at night. Best of luck for the end of the haul, and congratulations on all the reading!

I really enjoyed Crispin but never read book 2 in that series. Great job on the Read-a-Thon!!
