Read-A-Thon Update #5

I ended up taking a longer break than I originally planned. I started reading again at 10pm. I finished The New Girl and returned to reading Testimony.
This will probably be my last update for the night. I want to read a few more pages before going to bed. I'll write my wrap-up post tomorrow.

I do want to say I had a blast reading today. The Read-A-Thon came at a perfect time for me. It allowed me to push through my reading slump (one that I've been in for awhile) and I'm very pleased with all that I accomplished during the time I spent reading today.
