Hour 5 – First Official Read-a-thon Update

Dewey 24 hour readathonIt’s just hit 3am Sunday morning local time and I think I might head off to bed for a few hours sleep before the kids wake up and the day officially begins.

Before I go to sleep, I thought I would post an update of my progress so far. After getting off to a delayed then slow start, I’ve actually managed to get some reading done in the past couple of hours.

Title of book(s) read since last update:

  • Nelson Mandela’s Favorite African Folktales
  • Before I Fall – Lauren Oliver

Number of books read since you started: 2 (partially)

Pages read since last update: One CD of the Mandela set and 104 pages of Before I Fall.

Running total of pages read since you started: 104 pages and 75 minutes of the audiobook.

Amount of time spent reading since last update: This is my first official update. So far I have spent 3 hours and 15 minutes reading.

Running total of time spent reading since you started: 3 hours 15 minutes

Mini-challenges completed:
• Intro Challenge
• The Kick off of Champions Challenge

Other participants you’ve visited: So far I’ve left 6 comments. Not many, I know, but I’ve been trying to get as much reading in as I could before I fell asleep. Of the blogs I’ve visited, I’m really keen to go back and have a good look at Allie’s A Literary Odyssey. I love the idea of working through a list of classics, which I guess is what I’ve tried to inspire myself to do with the Popular Penguins Reading Challenge here at Reading Upside Down as well as a few other perpetual reading challenges I have in the pipeline.

OK. Now that I’ve posted an update, I’m off to bed for 3 – 4 hours sleep. I’m really enjoying Before I Fall, but may try something else for a while when I wake up.

Happy Reading Everyone!

    Woot woot!!! I hope you’re having tons of fun with your read-a-thon adventure. It is about 3:30 am where I’m at right now. So I’m going to take a nap soon also. But in the meantime, I hope you enjoyed Before I Fall (one of my recent faves).

    Go Team Wordsworth and HAPPY readings!!!
