Doing great :D

Michelle said...

Congratulations on your progress!!! Keep it up!

Annie said...

The Poison Throne? That sounds like a cool title! I'll be interested to see what you think of it when you're done :-)

Good luck and keep it up!

PS I'm an Aussie who started early so I'm in hour 17 now and REALLY struggling. Now wish I was doing it at the same time as the US participants!

If the weather is sunny in Dublin today, I definitely hope that you do go for a walk before it gets dark, as you probably won't get another sunny day very soon.
As for reading, I agree with Annie, The Poison Throne does sound like a cool title - and like a cool book from what you wrote. From your reading list I would suggest The Shadow of the Wind next, when I read it I could not put it down, I guess I read it through one or two nights, only putting it down during work hours... so it would fit a Read-a-thon perfectly! I wish I had such a book on my shelf now...

Can I ask a really dumb question? What is tucs? See how I hone right in on what everyone's eating. ;)

Hope you're having fun, Valentina!

Trish said...

LOL--I was about to ask the same thing that Debi did about the tucs. The ham cheese and tomato sounds wonderful!

Eva said...

It's good you're enjoying the book! And I have no idea what 'tucs' are either!

Thanks everyone! Time is so flying!
I went out briefly, the day is lovely, but I hope it won't be the last sunny day of the season!!!

At Debi and Trish: LOL!! You don't have Tucs in the US? hihi. They are a sort of cheese crackers. addictive I'm tellin ya!
