We’re now a whole day into the 24 in 48 readathon. I’m off to bed, but below is my update.
I really didn’t prepare for this readathon like I have in the past, and that started to show shortly after breakfast. I didn’t get nearly as much reading time accomplished as I wanted to, but that’s because I fell asleep twice while reading The Fellowship of the Ring. I was enjoying it, but I was so tired from not getting enough sleep (thanks to the cat) that it wasn’t enough to keep me awake. After my two naps, I realized I needed to switch books. I finished listening to Bookmarked for Death and started The Scorpio Races while I did some laundry, then I read Feed for a bit until my Nook warned me my battery was about to die. I couldn’t even read (R)evolution by P.J. Manney because my Kindle needed to be recharged as well. On top of that, I was feeling a little moody and didn’t want to read Primary Inversion by Catherine Asaro, so I picked up The Giver instead.
I remembered that I had leftover Chinese food from Friday night, so I ate that for lunch. I had some of my ice cream for dessert, and I had vegetarian “fish” filets and fries for dinner. I also drank a lot of green iced tea.
