Later that afternoon and evening, Monday, I finished The Family (a book bought from Deadalus Bookstore in NY that has been sitting around unfinished for at least six months) and finished The Dollhouse.
I felt the Marathon was a complete success because my primary goal was to whittle down my TBR stack, and I did. Plus, I finished my library book way before it was due and can now take the non-fiction The Family to Half-Price Books next trip.

It is really enjoyable to read your account of your marathon of reading! I only wish I were so strong.

You fared much better than I ever have in a readathon — I’m out like a light by 12. Fantastic!
