Well I’ve hit my fundraising target at least, though that doesn’t mean I’m stopping just yet. It is past my normal bedtime now and I’m feeling a bit under the weather, so I might have to risk a forfeit for a few hours sleep. I haven’t read this solidly in ages though, so that’s a huge plus. I might even be caught up on that dreaded Goodreads target I set…

Currently reading: Apple and Rain by Sarah Crossan + You Say Potato by Ben + David Crystal
Read: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, The Yellow Wall-Paper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman + The Earth is Singing by Vanessa Curtis
Pages read since last update: 329

If I wanted to make up memories, wouldn’t they be good ones? Wouldn’t all my childhood stories have happy endings?

    Congrats on making your fundraising goal and getting in a ton of excellent reading. Sounds like you've earned yourself a good sleep should you choose to accept it! If not, then keep up the great reading! =)

    It's hour 15. It's time to shake it all up, and maybe change the reading material for something lighter, faster, easier, funnier. You've earned it. Go for a graphic novel, a comedy, a poem, a book of verse, anything, but make a change, just for a few pages or chapters. Oh… and now is the time for one of those super snacks you've been saving! πŸ˜‰ #TeamMrPopper
