#Readathon: Shel's Eighth Update

Guys, I think we've reached that time...that time where my bed is beckoning me.  That time where I tell myself that it's okay to read in bed.  I'll just put on PJs and brush my teeth first out of habit, not because I'm actually going to sleep.  And I'll rest in bed, at first, with the blankets pushed off to a corner.  But soon enough, without thinking, as I keep reading, I'll be under the blankets.  I'll just remind myself that I won't put my head down.  But I will put my head down, few but dear readers.  Then I'll tell myself that I'll just close my eyes for a minute.  See, I'll still hold my spot in my book with my hand.  No harm, no foul.  

Then I'll open my eyes and it will be light out  and my neck will be sore from where I slept on my book.  I will curse and quickly fill-out the final readathon survey and backdate it for the time when the thing actually ended earlier in the morning.

I welcome that time, friends!  I welcome that experience!  It all seems rather pleasant.

Stay strong, my fellow readers and cheerleaders!  And if anyone asks, tell them I stayed strong too.
