I started reading at approximately 11:50 am, so I'm planning a 12 hour readathon for myself.
Reading: Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (starting point p. 206)
Update 2 (11:50 AM-1:50 PM):
- I’ve read 40 pages and finished 0 books
- I’ve read for 2 hours
It doesn't look like I read much cause I also made and ate lunch (twice, I made an avocado egg salad that turned out terrible, and ended up eating Indian leftovers). Hopefully I'll have better news to report by my next update!
Update 3 (1:50 PM-3:15 PM):
- I’ve read 222 pages and finished 1 book
- I’ve read for 3 hours and 25 minutes
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (p.246-300)
I cheated! Well sorta. I read a book without any words. It was beautiful though, and a nice break from text. I've got 52 pages left in Code Name Verity so I'll definitely finish that by my next update. I'm having stomach pain though so I'm going to take a break now.
Update 4 (6:05 PM-6:55 PM):
- I’ve read 274 pages and finished 2 books
- I’ve read for 4 hours and 15 minutes
Wow, I am kinda failing miserably at this readathon today! I ended up going to the movies with my boyfriend this afternoon (Jeff, Who Lives At Home) which was a nice break and outing but hasn't helped my reading. Anyway, as soon as I got home I buckled down to finish Wein's book... absolutely tragic ending. I'm not a hundred percent sure what I'll read next, I'm thinking The Apothecary by Maile Meloy that I'm about 40 pages into. Until then, happy reading everyone!
Update 5 (8:05 PM-8:55 PM):
- I’ve read 362 pages and finished 2 books
- I’ve read for 5 hours and 5 minutes
Another break, this time to cook and eat supper! But then I devoured a nice chunk of a book, so that has got to compensate a little bit. I've pretty much accepted my participation this time round will not be up to par, but it's still fun keeping this post and seeing how much reading I'm managing anyway.
Update 6 (9:00 PM-11:00 PM):
- I’ve read 568 pages and finished 2 books
- I’ve read for 7 hours and 5 minutes
The Apothecary by Maile Meloy (p.134-210)
Probably my last update for the day although I may read a little more, I'm getting tired and whatnot. Overall, it was a 'real' readathon by any means, but I still managed a decent chunk of reading, even if you exclude the graphic novel without words. Definitely plan to participate again in the future, hopefully with a little more advance notice.
