It’s been a long day. Being my first Readathon, I thought it was as much reading as possible on the 17th October kinda thing. But there is a fixed 24 hour period – mine started at 1pm (because of my time zone), I found out after getting up at 8:30, ON A SATURDAY!
Anyways, half way point passed, the first 12 hours were spent on 1 book, a very interesting book that made me think about lots of things, so combine that with eating, seeing what other people are up to on twitter and instagram, trying to complete challenges, blogging, being distracted by my husband, the TV, etc I’ve only made it through 25% ish of the book. And although that seems like a small amount, given that the book is covering maths, neurology and philosophy and lots of other stuff, that’s pretty good going.
However, I’ve now switched books, I remembered that I had an unfinished ebook one of my newly favourite authors – Elizabeth Hunter. If you like PRN check out her Elemental series and spin off series’ – I promise I will actually publish my review/ thoughts on this series & characters.. one day. Maybe before the year is out
Oh this is how tired I am, I realised after posting that my point of blogging was a mini challenge…
1. What are you reading right now?
Lost letters and christmas lights – Elizabeth Hunter (it’s part of a joint ebook release, I confess I haven’t read the other book)
2. How many books have you read so far?
2, completed, 0
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
The above book that I just started reading, or trying to finish Blinded Man by Arne Dahl tomorrow
4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Plenty, mostly self imposed, ignored, or distracted.. I’m just trying to stay focused and sitting in my reading chair
5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
When you check just the sheer amount of posts on instagram or twitter via the #readathon hashtag and realise how immense it all is, then you spot that several people are reading the same book, and go look that book up on Goodreads, then you realise you’ve lost half an hour online, again
