The 24-Hour Read-A-Thon: Continued
April 22, 2012 28 Comments
After a good night’s sleep it’s time to continue 24 Hour Read-a-thon! More than 300 book bloggers and other book lovers all over the world are reading as much as they can within 24 hours. Some will read 6 hours, some will try and read the full 24 hours. I wonder how many are still going!
I’ve got 6 more hours left until the read-a-thon is over so I’m going to read, read, read. I’ll leave an update every now and then. Check out my progress from yesterday HERE.
Come back if you like to check up on me and cheer me on. If you’re also taking part, leave me a comment and I’ll come and visit you too.
After waking up (yesterday plus some bed-time reading): 7 hours of reading time and 247 pages. It’s 8 am now.
I’m reading The Four Fingers of Death (continuing at page 150) and I’ve Got Your Number (also at page 150) .
Hour 22 – Still reading I’ve Got Your Number. Since I actually have a chance to finish this book (the only book I CAN finish now) I better keep reading it. I’m at page 237 of 306 so that should be easy enough. Then, if there’s time, I’ll continue in the other book.
I’ve also been cheerleading as that was my task. Not that many people seem to be around now, but can you blame them? 🙂
Read 87 pages since earlier, total of 334 pages and erm no idea how many hours. I’m guessing: about 9. Yes, it seems I’m reading VERY slowly… I’m actually a fast reader but this one book is SO dense!
FINAL UPDATE HOUR 25 – I’ve read another 46 pages in The Four Fingers of Death. I’m now at page 196.
Total read: 380 pages
Finished: 1.25 books
Hours Read: about 11.5 includes some social media too AND I did cheerleading for about 45 minutes
End of event meme:
1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
I was very tired at 1am, which was Hour 12 for me. By then, I was in bed reading but I had to put the book away as the story in my head started to diverge from that in the book.
2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
These are the books I’m planning to read:
That’s two English books and two in Dutch (although they are all available in English so I’ll give you the English titles):
- The Four Fingers of Death by Rick Moody
- Sister by Rosamond Lupton
- I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella
- The Death of Bees by Lisa O’Donnell
