24-Hour Read-a-Thon: Update #6 (18 Hours In)


Here are my stats thus far:

Reading: Betsy-Tacy and Tib. I was reading In the Time of the Butterflies but I will pick that one up again tomorrow.

Pages Read Since Last Update: 23

Total Pages Read: 600

Books Completed: Cheerful Weather for the Wedding and The Return. I am more than halfway done with The Last Song but it just isn’t going to happen tonight. That book turned my brain to mush (for some many reasons) that I had to give it up.

Nibbly Foods Eaten: I had a handful of whole grain crackers and two bottles of water. I am SO over food now.

Random Tidbits: This was a slow reading period for me. My youngest one hit the sack at 8pm but my son wasn’t having it. He wanted to watch a movie so I watched some of it with him. Then he wanted to decorate some more so he had me take this pic (above). Needless to say, I could not concentrate on the book AND the movie so I sort of took a break. Everyone is in bed now. The house is quiet.

Ti’s Comfy Factor (5 being comfy): I am having a hard time staying awake now. The 11pm hour is a tough one for me. I have resorted to lying on the couch so I am comfy, but half asleep. I would put my comfy factor at 5.

Next Update: My next update should be at 2am (Pacific) if I don’t fall asleep.

  1. 18 hours is awesome! I made it 16 and then the baby took over for a couple hours and I lost it. Well, 16 minus the party and off and on in the afternoon!

  2. I have big kids and they still kept me from reading as much as I wanted to! I didn’t get as much reading done as I had thought I might but certainly more than I would have otherwise!

  3. I never made it over here during the Readathon, but I did more reading than blogging or blog-hopping, so I didn’t make it to visit a lot of people :-). I didn’t last past 1 AM myself. Sounds like you had a pretty good Readathon overall!

  4. I haven’t seen a wrap-up post yet, unless I missed it. Hope you had a great time. You were making awesome progress at the time of this update!
