What's to sigh about? You finished the challenge, you didn't drop out like some of us (ahem), and you spent some enjoyable hours reading. Nothing to complain about there.

You're a full book ahead of me for the weekend. Good work.

Woohoo! I read only 160 pages for East of Eden this weekend.

The important thing is how you felt while you were reading what you did. I got tired of sitting still so long and concentrating on reading, which was refreshing in itself since I rarely get to feel that these days. Usually running after little people, right? It's nice to see I can find a couple of hours to sit still and just read now and then. And not blogs or surfing - reading a book in a porch swing YAY!

If it makes you feel any better, you finished 1/2 a book more than I did. Someday we'll have so much time to read and we'll wonder where our babies went.

Well, as the designated stats-gatherer today (MR's busy booktalking), I have to ask: Any idea about how much time you were able to spend reading?

(Sorry if I was unclear -- you spent 3 hours, 30 minutes plus whatever you spent on Beige, so it's that total I'm looking for. Thanks!)
