Read-a-Thon: The Results

So after I got home from the doctor's today I didn't do any more reading.

But I did get some things done today. I read two stories each in Paris Stories, The New Weird, Rasskazy, Good Evening, Mrs. Craven, The New York Stories of Edith Wharton and four from Prizes: The Selected Stories of Janet Frame. I decided to weed the last two; I didn't like the stories I read and I'm not interested in reading more. I'm giving The New Weird to my husband; I started two stories that I didn't finish and decided I'm done with that one, too. But I really enjoyed Good Evening, Mrs. Craven, and look forward to reading more.

After I got home I tried to read some other things but nothing was holding my attention and I decided the thing to do was to relax and watch some TV.

I did read some more of Solar while I was waiting to pick my prescription though- so all is not lost!

I want to thank all the nice people who commented all day and cheered me on. I appreciate it, and I promise to do better next time!

No apologies necessary, Marie! The thing that is so great about this event is that you define your own parameters of "success." If I hit 15 hours today, I'll be very pleased with myself!

TV watching was a good idea, and probably good medicine in addition the the antibiotics.

Don't be hard on yourself.

You did great!!! I'm trying to keep going but it's so hard because I'm starting to get really sleepy!

sorry if I bullied you with all my cheering! :) I was on twitter so much and didn't really visit as many blogs as I should (it was just that Twitter loaded faster and was a much better way to feed my manicness.)
Hope kitty is OK.
