Read-A-Thon | Midpoint Check-in

I've been a bit distracted today so I don't feel like I have much progress to report on but I'm having a lovely day and that's what matters:).  

START TIME:  7:00 a.m.
CURRENT TIME: 7:00 p.m.
TIME SPENT READING: 406 minutes - 6 hours 46Minutes
BOOKS READ: Haven't finished anything yet. About 2/3rds through The Chessmen and on Chapter 6 of The Golem and the Jinni.  While I eat dinner I think I'll dive into a Graphic Novel so I have something to report!

Mid-event Survey

1. What are you reading right now?
Still working on the Chessmen and The Golem and the Jinni.  Am going to start reading the two Serenity Graphic Novels with dinner.
2. How many books have you read so far?
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
Diving into the Graphic Novels below
4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
As I said above, I've been a little distracted today.  When possible I've popped on my headphones and listened to an audio.  Mostly, I just haven't stressed about it too much.
5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
How slow I read and how hard I find it to focus even if I am really enjoying the book.  I had this revelation last readathon but am once again being smacked upside the head by it.  It's a miracle I get as many books read as I do in a year!
