well first and foremost I had fun, that should be the key ingredient/motivation for anyone to take on this challenge. It takes a certain amount of discipline to do this as well. I just double checked my stats, I lasted two hours longer on this challenge than I did in last April's challenge, that's not terribly important but the only reason I brag about it is in having MS I'm very prone to fatigue. It's a miracle I stayed as alert as I did for as long as I did.
I didn't read my WHOLE book but I got damn close to it. Out of the book I chose two stories, "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption" and "The Body". It helped me visualize especially since these stories were featured as movies. Of the two I enjoyed "The Body" most. It involves the adult recollections of Gordon Lachance and how he and his friends set out to see a dead body just before Labor Day in 1960. I have quite a few other King books which I think might be next on my reading list.
To my fellow Read-a-thoners I say see in six months!
To my fellow MSers, keep safe and painfree and keep reading!
