I made it to #readathon Hour 18, but I am beat and have a headache starting. I made it half way through Longbourn and am 2 hours into Queen’s Gambit. I read more today than I’ve read probably since the end of August. I count that as a success. The the rest of the readathoners who are soldiering on, more power to you! Thanks for a great event.
Holy cow! Has it already been 12 hours? It doesn’t seem possible. Here are my answers to the Mid-Event Survey:
1) How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired?
I am starting to feel like it’s a whole lot later than it really is. I’m taking a break to fix what I’ll be discussing in #4. :) After that’s ready, I think I’ll switch to audio and crochet for a little while. The Tiger game will be on. Let’s see how many things I can do at once.
2) What have you finished reading?
I’ve finished my two in progress reads: The Teleportation Accident and Winter King. While I’d love to finish Longbourn before the end of the Read-a-Thon, I won’t be disappointed if I don’t. I’m just not that fast a reader.
3) What is your favorite read so far?
I am really enjoying both Longbourn and my current audiobook, Queen’s Gambit. They are both fresh air compared to what I’ve finished thus far today.
4) What about your favorite snacks?
I haven’t had a single snack at all today. I had a huge breakfast at 9:30 and then I ate dinner at 5. I’m going to make myself a treat, though. I’ve got a box of brownies ready to be made. I’ll start baking as soon as I post this update. I’ll top them with some ice cream. If I’m going to have a dessert, I’m going big. :)
5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love!
I confess to not reading other posts. I know that my energy for reading is going to fritter out at some point before I catch my second wind. I hope to cheer people on when that happens.
Took a 50 minute walk and started QUEEN’S GAMBIT. That’s reading time for the #readathon and #TudorFest2013. Drinking some water and then a quick shower before I start my next print read. How’s your #readathon going?
