Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon - The Spring 2011 Edition
I'm kicking off the event with a little coffee (actually, a lot of coffee) and breakfast while I finish up Timothy Schaffert's The Little Coffins Of Hope. Then it's on to Meg Wolitzer's The Uncoupling, which I'll be reviewing this week. After that The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent, which my book club is reading for this month. We are all so excited to be Skyping with Ms. Kent! If, by some bizarre chance, I find myself getting in much more reading time than I had planned, or being able to stay awake all night, I'll finish the read-a-thon with Valerie Lakin's Separate Kingdoms, which I'll be reviewing for TLC Book Tours later this month.
I'm just going to be adding to this post throughout the read-a-thon so as to not clog up any one's reader or email. I'll be checking in with my fellow readers periodically, but for now, let's get reading!
Update 1: Three hours in and I've finished The Little Coffins of Hope and I'm 45 pages in The Uncoupling. Pages read: 108. I am definitely not a morning person.After about an hour of reading I get drowsy. I've had to take a break and get moving to wake myself up. Fortunately for Mini-Me, that means the haircut he's been needing.
Wrap Up: Not long after my last update, I succumbed to the weight of my eyelids and went to bed. It was beginning to feel too much like work and I never want to have the feeling that reading is making me miserable. I did get 50 pages into The Heretic's Daughter and I'm enjoying it very much. Wish I would have had more time to read today!
Total Pages Read: 434
