Readathon: Hour 15

Top ten things the readathon has made me wish I had in my house:

1. A recliner
2. A hot tub (for when the whole thing's over)
3. A man (or woman, I'm not picky)servant to make me cappuccino
4. Voice dictation software, so that I could yell the blog posts out from the couch
5. Cupcakes....lots of cupcakes
6. A self cleaning kitchen so that I won't have to worry about doing the whole thing tomorrow (maybe #3 could handle that)
7. A more comfortable couch
8. One of those ambient noise machines, so that I could turn on a rainstorm in the background. Often the Pacific Northwest obliges in this one, but not tonight)
9. A spare pair of glasses
10. A big, fat Amazon gift card, so I could buy myself new books to reward myself for completing the challenge.

And now, back to the reading!

Very clever! I'm especially impressed by #4.

You're doing great...are you going to stay up all night?

A hot tub would be great as well as many many cupcakes. Oh yes and of course an Amazon gift card. Yay for being the reader of the hour.

Becky said...

I love your list! Especially the Amazon gift card :)

Cupcakes would be nice too.

Ooo, I like #10. And I'm very jealous of your location. Rain makes the loveliest noises for curling up and reading. I'm pretty fond of the after-the-rain smell, too. :)

cupcakes... hmmmm....
delicious...

nice entry in there...

Traci said...

Oooh, number 4 would be totally cool! I definitely want one of those. Oh, and number 10, of course, but that's a no brainer (didn't need the read-a-thon to want one of those!)

Happy Reading!!

Ivan Girl said...

wow, great list there! I sure wish for #4 & 5. Hihihi!

I just posted my last update. I have to go elsewhere and I'm bring my last book and be back before Read-A-Thon ends. :)

will be visiting again later. :)

I am glad to share my hot tub, but you are so far away!

Icedream said...

I love your list, every single thing. Would the manservant give massages too?

Ashley said...

Haha...yes and make sure you get me an Amazon gift card too while you're at it. ;)

Congrats fellow reader of the hour! Happy Reading!

what a great list - my mind is too much on reading to compose a list but it is fun to read them

L^2 said...

Excellent list! I'd like to have all of these things too.

Also, I love your blog template. :-)

Meryl said...

Ohhh, being able to yell out blog posts would be nice!

jessi said...

I have cake, which is close enough to cupcakes for me. :) Congrats on being reader of the hour - happy reading!

Jules said...

I like number one and the cappachino maker slave..... :D

Laura said...

Ooo...I wish I had lots of cupcakes too! Now, I'm not going to be able to stop thinking about how much I want a cupcake!

Trish said...

If you find cupcakes, send some my way! Yum!

kkfea74 said...

And I'm with you on the hot tub thing. That would be awesome.

I'm very late getting it up because I somehow thought this event was next week.

Great list! Right now I wish I had a hot-tub so I could soak on the deck, keeping my body warm but letting the cold air keep my head clear :)
