  1. This is funny...I'm a cheerleader for this middle part of the readathon and your word verification says I should type in "pepgal". LOL

    I've never read The Princess Bride. The more I read, the more gaps in my reading I'm aware of.

  2. I read The Princess Bride years ago and really enjoyed it (although I do prefer the movie).
    Going great, keep it up!!!

  3. Congrats, sounds like it is going well. The Princess Bride has always been on my to read list, I just never get to it.

    Good luck for the rest of the Read-a-Thon and don't end up like this...

  4. Aw, no prizes yet. Well, best of luck for the remaining 9 hours or so!

  5. I've not read The Princess Bride or watched the movie despite the fact that it has been recommended to me a number of times!

    You are doing really well so far. Keep up the good work!

  6. The movie is a classic, and needs to be watched. I just finished the book and it was one of the most odd yet entertaining reads ever. READ ON!

  7. I also want to get to Princess Bride someday. Happy Reading!
