I have amazed and astounded Laura. I've been reading the same book - "Voyager" - for 10 hours now. She, on the other hand, is Wonder Woman to me. She has finished a biography of the Thames, some graphic novels, a little manga, Salinger and is on to Veronica Roth's "Insurgent." While she's read books, I've read pages.
We've taken a short break to brew tea and refresh our glasses of water, having feasted on pizza and garlic breadsticks, only to regret the carbohydrate infusion shortly thereafter. The fire is still crackling and the cats are still wandering about from one soft and comfortable surface to another.
I think I have a few hours left in me, but we'll see how true that holds. Laura, brave woman that she is, is still pushing to finish 24 hours.
