..... 0 minutes (415 minutes = 6 hours + 55 minutes)

Other participants I've visited this hour:
Jessi's challenge:

Mini-challenges (Eva's new one and playing catch-up):
..... Eva's Post a Photo Mini-Challenge: Photograph something related to your read-a-thon experience and put it in a post w/ a caption. If you don’t have a digital camera, or it’s not working, just find something on the internet that approximates it. Or draw a cartoon in paint! lol One lucky participant will be randomly drawn to win 5 bookmooch points from Dewey. I’m going to leave it open for this and the next hour (so the drawing will be at the beginning of Dewey’s hour twenty-three).
Still to do:

..... Jessi's challenge: Name as many authors as you can from her YouTube video. I'll work on this between now and 9:00 a.m. EDT.



..... Bybee is hosting How much do you know about Korea?
The person who can list the most facts (trivial or otherwise) about the interesting peninsula upon which I now live and work will win a copy of the novella pictured above.

An Appointment With My Brother is the story of a South Korean man whose father abandoned the family, defected to North Korea for ideological reasons, and started a new family there. Upon the father's death many years later, the South Korean man meets his North Korean half-brother for the first time.

Leave your answers in the Comments section; you have until the end of the Readathon. This contest is open to all Readathon participants. Good luck!
Since I have a friend currently working in South Korea, I'll take on this challenge! The list will come a bit later, however, because I want to keep reading.
