  1. Danielle Bowen

    I’ve been moving about to my self-made reading playlist to stretch my legs. Less dancing and more jerky, awkward movement, though, as I was still reading whilst doing so.

  2. Lauren

    My lower back was starting to protest the reading nest I had made in my room so I did some back stretches and then ran up and down the stairs a couple of times to wake me back up. I feel energized and ready for a couple more hours of reading!

  3. Daisey

    I walked around the house, started a pot of tea, walked outside to take my Frightful Reads photo, and made another lap around the house.

  4. Monica

    I just walked to the library (even though it’s closed because it’s just about midnight here) and put my books in the book return. Then I walked home!

  5. Cori Holmberg

    I got up and did some stretches, lunges, arm circles, neck rolls, karate kicks and running in place. Thank you! Cori Holmberg

  6. Charmaine

    I jogged around the rug for five minutes, alternating with a high-step march when I realized five intervals of sixty seconds is longer than I would have initially believed.

  7. Kay @ It's a Book Life

    Since my brain is tired and I couldn’t think of anything original I played your song and got up and danced. It felt good! What a great challenge. I think it was a necessity. πŸ˜€

  8. Marcelina Meler

    I danced privately to Twenty Pilots songs. It was so much fun and I needed that!!

  9. Nicole Dunton

    I got up and followed my cat and our guest cat around. They were quite a bit annoyed with me for doing so. I guess they didn’t want me to find out what they were getting into.

    • Frances Cristina G

      Haha. I read this and immediately thought, at this moment those cats are planning to planning to draw on her with markers the moment she falls asleep.

  10. Leann Richardson

    brushed my teeth while standing on one leg for a minute and then switched to stand on the other for a minute…. then I took my evening supplements quickly and then did some knee lifts and squats to finish out the song. (about 3 minutes of that. LOL

  11. Laura Jones

    The pug and I took a walk around the block. It was a much needed break for us both.

  12. Paramondi

    I walked around to see what mischief my cats were up to… and then chased two of them away from the trash can and the string cheese wrappers in there!

  13. Rebecca

    Max and I did two push-ups and then – this is where it gets wild – we did what is called a “stacked push-up” in which I did a push up on his back while he did a push-up on the floor. So, beat that. πŸ™‚

  14. Frances Cristina G

    I took Zoey for a walk to the gas station. They gave her a dog biscuit. All the way home she kept barking about how great you are. I was feeling, as the young ones say, so jelly that I took extra minutes to play keep the mummy away with her. She loves me again so I can return to reading now. Haha.
    This was both fun and needed.

  15. JaretG

    I went up and down my stairs for 5 mins. I’m completely out of breath. I sat down at the top of the stairs and the cat sat next to me just staring at my idiotic self. LOL

  16. The Wicked Bookworm

    I walked around my apartment until I met the 250 steps my FitBit wants me to get every hour!

  17. Elsie

    I was just about to walk to the mailbox… partially to wake up and partially because I accidentally brought home someone else’s mail last night and it was too late to go back…

  18. Katie Laurence

    I had my own private dance party… XD It’s my go-to method when I need a quick homework break and am in my apartment! I turn out the lights, put in earbuds, and dance with my eyes closed until I work up a sweat XD

  19. Rachelle

    I really needed this mini-challenge! I didn’t realize it until I stood up and started pacing around the apartment that my back was hurting a little. I listened to a bit of The Exorcist while I paced.

  20. Diana C.

    I stretched and did some squats and now im looking forward to staying in bed the rest of the readathon πŸ˜‰

  21. julia kristinsson

    I got up and did some exercises to keep me awake for awhile longer (it’s night time where I live)
    -I’m under 18 but I have permission to enter this giveaway so is that ok?

  22. Mary Caputo

    I helped my mom get things into the house after her return from out of town and tried a costume on my 1 year old son for Halloween that his grandmother got for him. He was so adorable.

  23. Morgan stevenson

    I walked around my house while reading and almost ran into a wall multiple times and then I walked to the fridge to get food ??

  24. Kristel Hart

    Got up, closed the curtains, brushed teeth and did walking laps around the house.

  25. Jane

    I love that song!!! My daughter and I did a mixture of walking, dancing, and jumping . I feel better already! Thanks!

  26. Julie

    Put my headphones and danced around the house…..the dogs follow me around and dance with me. Three songs – about 10 minutes! Since I am also in a number of ‘step’ challenges, there has been a book going on my treadmill all day too. Did three treadmill work outs!

  27. Jordan

    Got up for a bit of cleaning that needed to happen. Played with my dog. Now time for more reading!

  28. Ahavah

    Everyone’s sleeping here, so I just stretched…and gave myself a little shoulder/neck massage when I realized how sore I was!

  29. Jenni King

    Just had my own personal dance party to “Thinkin’ Bout Something” by Hanson. Definitely got my blood pumping… also my cat is now hiding behind the couch because he’s afraid of my terrible dance moves.

    • Kimberly Meyer

      OMG! YES!!!!! Hanson is the best! I actually put on my Hanson pandora station during the past hour!!

  30. Jessica A Minor V

    My husband and I just went around the block and to the corner store to buy a lighter.

  31. Elizabeth A.

    Great timing for this challenge as I needed to get up and stretch my legs anyway! I walked around the house – laps through my kitchen, dining and living rooms. The dog thinks I am nuts. πŸ˜‰
