Mini-challenges completed: Introduction, Mid-event survey, and Feed Me, Seymour

Finished Books:

  • Bring It On by Laura Anne Gilman
  • Corpse Pose by Diana Killian

Comments: Just finished the second book of the day—Corpse Pose by Diana Killian. Like Bring It On, the book is registered at BookCrossing. It will be mailed to Lemonitsa in Canada in the next week. I took the time to submit an entry in the Feed Me, Seymour mini-challenge. My comment says, "Since I'm trying to not overeat today, I've been drinking water, unsweetened iced tea, and diet sodas and trying not to give into the temptation to snack. I did, however, help myself to a left-over scone at mid-afternoon. I'll probably have another one around midnight. My meals, however, have been special. Hubby treated me to meals at my favorite local restaurants and I've eaten very well today. Since the Read-a-Thon ends at 7am in my time zone, he's agreed to take me out for a celebration breakfast & then I'll nap for a couple of hours."
