Last Chance ...


Feels like I have flogged this contest forever. It has been several months of my exhorting everyone to Read! Read! Read!

In that time period I myself have gotten through about a book a week. But those don't count towards the charitable donation. Only books read by you all do!

[Puts fundraiser hat on] Yes, the total is up to $47 as of today. That is great, more than I could have hoped for. Did you notice how close to $50 it is? $50 is a nice number, isn't it?

Just think of all the things that libraries have done for you in your lifetime. I'm sure of all the people who have participated so far, there will be three more books read by the end of this Friday.

That would be great! Yes, that nice round number of $50. Yes, three more, that's nothing. How about 8 more?

Been getting things half read and starting other things, but I'm almost done with Atrocity Archive.

I'm reading three books right now! I guess the key is finishing them (and notifying you) by 11:59 pm Friday.

I have my orders. Who else is with me?

In spite of the new job seriously cutting into my reading time, I feel certain I did my part.

Woohoo!

No chance in hell I'll finish the current read by midnite, so I'm done.

Nathan, you led the pack.

Just waiting for the results from the left coast now. It's too close to call ...

I'm feeling like Kelsey Grammar at Emmy time.

So I finished the week the same way ... still reading three books at the same time.

So close, yet so far away.

I enjoyed the countdown, even better than New Year's Eve.

Thanks for a cool contest, and thanks to all my friends for playing!
