My Own Personal 1st Hour of ReadAThon Complete!

I woke up at about 8:30 am, the readathon in my timezone began at 8 am, so I just elected to start an hour late!

Anyways my first hour is up and I have also finished my FIRST book for the readathon, so I guess that means I am off to a roaring start. πŸ™‚

First completed book is Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney. Some highlights for me included: Cheese touch, lame Christmas presents, and the weight-lifting FAIL.

Onto my next book!
