I finished Making Mischief: A Maurice Sendak Appreciation by Gregory Maguire at the end of hour 7.
I started For Grace Received, but wasn’t feeling it. So I switched to The Wild Things by Dave Eggers (my fur covered edition!) which I’m really enjoying. I think I can at least finish this today… we’ll see if I can get to four or not.

I’m going to take a small break soon – I’d like to go outside and get a little fresh air on this rainy afternoon. I’ll probably walk to Barnes and Noble and look around for a bit. Visiting a bookstore always gives me motivation to read more, so it will help inspire me for the rest of the read-a-thon. Maybe I’ll even get a new book. :)
The next Mini-Challenge is Collection Obsession by http://www.caribousmom.com. The goal is to share a photo a info about one of your non-book obsessions.
I’m hoping this counts, because it’s still bookish. But it’s the most feasible collection I have to photograph easily. Besides, it’s not actually books.
I collect bookmarks. I buy them, find them, and get them from bookstores and libraries. I have hundreds, and I keep them in a cigar box.
The odd thing is I don’t use any of these bookmarks. I pretty much exclusively use Strand bookmarks, of which I have a ridiculously large stack.
