#24in48 Readathon – Nighty Night, Y'all!

We have reached the end of the 24 in 48 readathon.  I’m going to bed after a well-deserved weekend of reading.

Final Update
I listened to nearly half of Redshirts while I ignored the rest of the world.  I also spent quite a bit of time reading Wizard and Glass, but I’m still about 150 pages from the end.

While I didn’t meet my goal of finishing 3 books, and I didn’t get anywhere near reading for 24 hours, I did have a great time, and I turned more pages than I would have this weekend without the readathon. I know I’ll finish Wizard and Glass this week, probably by Tuesday.
In the Middle of Reading:

  • Wizard and Glass by Stephen King
  • Redshirts by John Scalzi


Total Pages Read: 247
Time Read: 6 hours 2 minutes
Total Time Read: 14 hours and 3 minutes
Goodnight, Y’all!

#24in48 Readathon – Hour 36!

Only 12 more hours to go until we reach the end of the 24 in 48 readathon.

Update #3
I did not finish Wizard and Glass before I fell asleep.  Not even close.

I’ve got some cleaning to do today, so I will be switching over to an audiobook.  Most likely Redshirts by John Scalzi.

#24in48 Readathon – Hour 12!

It’s hour 12 of the 24 in 48 readathon and here’s my first update!

Update #1
Since the official start time was 12 am EST and I live in California, I had intended to read a bit before I went to bed.  Unfortunately, that didn’t happen.  Instead, I realized just how exhausted I was from an extremely busy week at my new job, and decided to go to sleep early.
I also didn’t read this morning because I was busy getting ready to get out the door to meet with a friend for brunch.  I swear I will read A LOT before my next update, but until then, below is what I intended to read.
Current Read: Wizard and Glass by Stephen King

Pages Read: 0
Time Read: 0
My next update will be at 9 pm Pacific time, and I’m sure I’ll have much more to share!  See you then 🙂

#24in48 Readathon – Goodnight, Sleep Tight!

We have reached the end of the 24 in 48 readathon.  I’m going to bed after a mostly full weekend of reading and I will begin the recovery process tomorrow.

Final Update
I finished Spinning Silver around the same time I was ready for lunch.  I immediately started A Court of Thorns and Roses, but I think it’s too similar of a story so I put it down for now.  After that, I just didn’t feel like reading anymore (I think something might be wrong with me?)

#24in48 Readathon – Hour 36!

Only 12 more hours to go until we reach the end of the 24 in 48 readathon.  I didn’t get up until a few minutes ago, so this update will be a bit short.

Update #3
I did not finish Spinning Silver before I fell asleep.  However, I only have 100 pages to go, so I will finish it today.

I made overnight oatmeal before I went to bed so I wouldn’t have to use precious reading time to cook something this morning.

We’re now a whole day into the 24 in 48 readathon.  I’ll be headed to bed in a few hours, but below is my update.

Update #2
YAY!  I finished The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and most of Spinning Silver.

I also did quite a lot of cleaning, since I have to be doing something while listening to audiobooks.  I cleaned out my closet and all of my drawers, and I now have 3 large trash bags full of clothes and other things to donate.

#24in48 Readathon – Starting a Bit Late


Another #24in48 Readathon is happening RIGHT.NOW.  I was at a friend’s going away party last night, stayed much longer than I had originally planned, and came home to crash without even opening a book before I fell asleep.
Since I’m getting started a bit late, this post will serve as my starting line and my first update.
Goals:

  • Read for 24 hours.
  • Finish at least three books.

TBR:
I don’t have a planned out TBR like I usually do, except for the books I’m currently reading, but I will probably pull a book from my “Hygge” shelf on Goodreads.

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
  • Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik

 
First Update:
As I said, I haven’t opened a book yet.  However, I’ve got my book, timer, and tea right next to me so I’ll be reading as soon as this post goes live.  See you at my next update at 9 pm PST/12 am EST.

#24in48 Readathon – Good Night, Everyone!

We have reached the end of the 24 in 48 readathon.  Luckily, there is another readathon in a couple of weeks, but for now I’m going to bed after a full weekend of reading and I will begin the recovery process (aka cleaning the apartment) tomorrow.

Final Update
I finished Walden around the same time I was ready for lunch.  After I was done eating, I immediately picked up The Ocean at the End of the Lane, and other than a short nap, I read it straight through.

  • The Glorious Cause by Robert Middlekauff
