Hour 6

I'm not happy with the quantity of reading so far. I'm spending too much time doing challenges. And I'm feeling bummed I've had no cheerleading. Last time I had comments on almost every post.

Prizes you’ve won: Two books of my choice from the prize list for readers of the hour


  1. Congrats on the prizes! Also, I'm so impressed. Almost 500 pages already! Keep up the good work.

  2. Congrats Morph on the prizewining! Just going around checking out what other readers are doing. I too am getting distracted by the mini-challenges. Hang in there! Happy reading!

  3. The challenges are time consuming, which is sometimes frustrating! I needed a break so I did a couple, but I find myself skipping most of them. I hope the cheering will kick in for you soon!

  4. WOW -- I am impressed that you have read 459 pages so far!! WAY TO GO!

    I would like to read this James Patterson series sometime. How did you like the first book?

    Keep up the great read-athon pace :)

  5. 459 pages read? That's not shabby at all. Keep it up!

  6. I am not sure how cheer-leading is supposed to be working this time around, but I have seen a lot of commentless posts... It's not just you. I am sure once people get a bit organized it will start to come alive!

    Enjoy your Patterson book. I have actually read that series by him and I really like it!

  7. As an unofficial cheerleader, Go Go Morph!!! I've been checking your blog every hour today. I used your last Read-a-thon blog postings as template/inspiration for my own. It's my first time doing this, and I'm also spending too much time blogging and trolling around online, and not as much time reading as I'd hoped. I'm only now nearing the end of my first book - and it's Hour 6!!! Agh!

    I'll be checking up on you, and good luck! Oh, and congrats on your prize!!! I'm hoping to win something, aside from a mushier backside and bloodshot eyes.

  8. Oh don't be bummed. :( I think your doing a pretty awesome job so far. Ooo James Patterson seems to be a popular choice today. Congrats on your progress, keep up the fab work. Yay you won prizes!!!

  9. It can be hard to balance reading and minichallenges! We just rotated groups for cheerleading, so new cheerleaders should be stopping by now. :) Also, if you disable word verification, I bet you'd get more comments; those are a serious pain. You're a quarter of the way there-keep it up!

  10. You are doing great so far! Getting the balance between blogging, cheerleading and reading is difficult isn't it?
