Susy (susysstories) | 1296 comments Ehh, we're entering hour 9 now right?
I just did the sprint, read for 60 minutes, unfortunately just 25 pages of Lightning. I feel I'm getting tired (it's 10 pm here).

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 74 comments Yeah I planned on staying up the whole 24hr, but I read for the first 3hr and then I just kept on dozing, falling asleep while reading, so I had to sleep. I woke up 8hr in, so I slept for around 5hr. Starting at midnight's tough. But I'm not letting myself sleep anymore today. Just reading.

I am reading a kindle book just during the sprints. I got another 20% of it finished during the sprint.

Hilde (hilded) | 23 comments I managed to get 40 minutes and 50 pages of my book in for the second sprint. Now it's bedtime here (CET), but I still have a few hours tomorrow morning left :)

Cindy I am in. I finished White Nights. I read half of it, took a 15 minute break and then finished the last 30 pages. I would say I read for 50 minutes. It was a little heavy, I am going to take a break for an hour, probably take a walk for some exercise.

message 10: by Mary (new)

Mary King (maryk13) I read for 55 minutes, page 348 through 409 of The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue - ready to finish this one up!

Mel (thebookishmel) (thebookishmel) | 5 comments Finished The Hiding Place during the sprint and took a VERY needed break for the rest of it (which seems counterintuitive) but hey, it was good!

Lupe Dominguez (lupedominguez) | 43 comments I managed more than 400 pages in 45 minutes! I shocked even myself!!!

message 13: by Margaret (new)

Margaret (igem36) I only had 35 minutes left in this sprint when I finished sprint #1. I read 17 and a half more pages of In Suspect Terrain by John McPhee .

message 14: by Erika (new)

Erika | 15 comments Read 80 pages in The Astounding Broccoli Boy finishing that and 4 pages in Meddling Kids

message 15: by Rebecca Jean (new)

Rebecca Jean (rebecca2006) | 9 comments I read 43 pages for this sprint which I am happy with. But now it is 11.50 pm here in Norway and I am very tiered. I am debating sleeping for a couple of hours
