  1. Yay for the halfway point! I finished my survey and posted my blog entry – I’m surprised how easy the first hours have gone. I’m guessing fatigue will set in when the sun goes down, but so far so good – and I’m loving the books I picked!

  2. If you want to get technical about it… you’re not halfway done until the end of hour 12, or the beginning of hour 13. After all, we started at 8am (EDT), and it’s only 7ish pm now.

    Enough thinking… back to reading!

  3. I’m a fan of “The Final Countdown” to wake me up! I can’t believe it’s only halfway through (feels like I’ve been forever!) and already halfway through (time flies when you’re having fun!).

  4. Just updated my blog and posted my survey answers. Good luck to everyone! I need to finish at least one book but today has been crazy. :-)

  5. Actually, this wasn’t the 1/2 way mark. It was the beginning of the 12th hour. The true 1/2 way mark is now — the end of the 12th hour and the beginning of the 13th.
