It is after 1pm now. I can't quite believe it, but I made it. I lasted the whole 24 hours and read 5 whole books (plus 91 pages of a 6th book) *Obligatory wrap up post* Which hour was most daunting for you? Probably round about hours 14/15/16 as it was waaaay past my bed … Continue reading Readathon – Hour 24 – Crossing the finishing line!
ZOMG! I finished reading City of Bones. As you can tell, I loved it and man, this readathon is so awesome! I may be sleep deprived but I have really enjoyed reading books and blogging, and the mini-challenge! Oh the mini-challenge! FYI - the entries are so awesome I am currently trying to gather more … Continue reading Readathon Hour 23 – Book 5 is done!
Welcome and well done! You are almost there! We have finally reached Hour 22, and this hour I am hosting the mini-challenge! This is my first time hosting, but I have gathered together some fantabulous prizes linked to the movie theme. The Challenge The challenge this hour involves a few different things. Step 1: Select … Continue reading Readathon Mini Challenge Hour 22 *Hosting!* If It Were a Movie
I really am silly. I just posted my mini challenge an hour early! It's down now, stored in waiting for the next hour, but my confusion arose from the fact that I thought I was posting at 9am GMT - which is true, but I forgot that due to daylight savings time, the UK is … Continue reading Readathon Hours 20-21 – Oops!
I am alive! I logged off the laptop for a while as even in standby it was making a noise that was giving me a headache, so saved some energy and my sanity. Plus keeping the darn thing on distracts me from reading a bit too much - blogging and participating in games is awesome … Continue reading Readathon – Hours 15-19 Did I sleep? I don’t think so…
It is twenty past two and I am starting to feel sleepy as hell. I think the only reason I've not fallen asleep yet is due to the pain in my jaw, and also the fact I started reading The Mortal Instruments series Book 1 City of Bones on my kindle. It's as awesome … Continue reading Readathon – Hours 13 and 14: Sleepiness is kicking in…
Book 4 is finished now. I always forget about how silly the Goosebumps books are and how simple the writing style is. When I was younger I thought they were awesome but now I read them as an adult and see that they aren't even that well written, but man did they influence my early … Continue reading Readathon Hours 11 + 12 – Half way there!
Despite having been reading for 10 hours, and getting through a tedious 300+ page book in the first few hours of the readathon, I seem to have run out of steam a bit. Not surprising as that book was basically lists of words and reading so many lists is quite draining. It took me a while to … Continue reading Readathon Hours 6-10 : Slow Goings
Man this has been the longest few hours of my life, but like a trooper I ploughed on through the 800 pages of random words from foreign languages, and oddities from various dialects. I Never Knew There Was a Word For That is not a book I would recommend for readathonning - at least not … Continue reading Readathon Hours 3-5 – One book down… phew!
Not such a great start in that I was sitting in a pub drinking cocktails and being distracted from reading by some interesting committee talk. Read only about 4% of my book, which is proving to be a disappointing read as it in fact seems to be repeating a lot of stuff from the previously … Continue reading Readathon Hour 2
