I don't drink coffee either unless it has a lot of other stuff in it :) I love yoga as well though it's been awhile since I have done it, need to get back to it. I will have to read your Yogi tips post.

Good luck with your readathon goals and have fun!

Very cool about the 35 comics! I've got two graphic novels by Rick Geary slated. I'm saving them for the waning hours of the Readathon.
