Hour 16 and counting. It is 11:15 at night, the kids just retired and I will probably not last much longer. The mini challenge was clever...too clever for my muddled brain. So I will give one last update for the evening, go to sleep and see when I wake up.
According to my record-keeper Emma, she has read 323 pages, and is still reading The Purloined Boy. She wanted to finish it, but it wasn't meant to be. Ryan hasn't read anything in ages...he made it to 160 pages, which is really a miracle for a non-reading child. I am currently at 321 pages and have about 60 more pages to read of Knots and Crosses. The book has what you need in a crime thriller...a good and damaged protagonist, heinous acts of violence, and as of yet, an unsolvable mystery. I'm going to try my darnedest to finish it, but I'm faltering.
I took a hot bath, but that just made me tired. Then my record-keeper offered her foot massage services, but that made me tired too.
I wish you all the Red Bull you can handle, and hope you make it later than I!
