R-A-T: Hours 9 & 10

I took a short walk around my neighborhood before hour 9, and I stopped to take a few pictures. The flowers above are not mine, but they are a few houses down from mine, and I think they are so pretty! The sky was looking pretty stormy (see below) but it never rained and now the sun is out and shining!

I was pretty focused with my reading the last two hours, with no restlessness or urges to run in circles. My updates:
Number of pages since last update: 89
Total number of pages: 374
Number of books completed: 1
Time spent reading since last update: 80 min
Total time spent reading: 400 min
Time spent blogging since last update: 30 min
Total time spent blogging: 155 minutes
Mini-challenges completed: 2--intro meme, You tube video challenge

Oh the flowers are SO pretty! That sky looks stormy! You are doing a great job. I read matrimony last year. Most people like it, it really wasn't one of my faves though. bummer.

Keep up the excellent reading!

What a beautiful picture of the flowers! If I only had a green thumb... I love this kind of weather, it's perfect for curling up with a book... oh wait, that's what today is all about! You're doing great Laura, keep it up!

Happy Reading! You'll have to tell me what you think of Matrimony tonight.
