Dewey's Read-a-Thon: Update #4

It's hour 16 now and it's bedtime for me. Kate went off to bed two hours ago. I finished Under This Unbroken Sky, and Kate finished her second book, The Secret of the Stuttering Parrot, another Three Investigators mystery. She ended the night by reading with her Dad a few pages from Saturday Evening Pearls (A Pearls Before Swine collection) by Stephan Pastis.

Kate and I had an hour left on an audiobook that we've been listening to together over the week, and we finished it off earlier in the afternoon. This was Storm Warning, the 9th book in the 39 Clues series, written by Linda Sue Park, and superbly narrated by David Pittu. We had commented on this in the Hour 11 Attempting Audiobook challenge.

  1. Goodnight! Congrats on all the reading!

  2. Great job! Enjoy your well deserved rest!!

  3. Sleep well. You did a lot of reading today!

  4. You both did great! I hope you're enjoying a well-deserved sleep.

  5. Sounds like you are doing (done) great! Can't Kate count the book that Oliver wrote in school? I sent it to her just for her reading marathon this weekend. ;-)

    I'm jealous, I hope I can do something like this in a few years. Though I never multi-task books (except a business book with a pleasure book). I don't think you'll be able to convince me out of that one!
