And That's a Wrap!!
Beginning at 12:01am on Saturday morning and running through 11:59pm on Sunday night, readers read for 24 hours out of that 48 hour period. You can split that up however you’d like: 20 hours on Saturday, 4 hours on Sunday; 12 hours each day; six 4 hour sessions with 4 hour breaks in between; whatever you’d like.
Things didn't work out for me for this readathon as well as I would have liked. Yes, Saturday was a rather productive day, but mainly in the non-reading sector. I spent time just hanging out with the family, with my brother being back in town. It was nice, and I DID get a little bit of read done during random moments of free time.
Then I slept my Sunday morning away, having gotten very little sleep the previous day, and DID manage to get a bit more reading done.
During my last update, I'd calculated a rough total of 5 hours of reading. But after that, I sort of lost track of how much time I spent reading. I can recall taking about 2 hours, maybe 3 hours, to reach about half point into Midnight Crystal, then passing out again for a few hours. Then I spent another 2 hours finishing the rest of the book--some random moments there and there that would most likely add up to 2 hours, that is.
So, in total, I barely glanced the underside of 10 hours of reading.
Nonetheless, I DID finish two books, despite The Pretender being more like half a book, and despite the fact that I had already gotten about 14 pages into Midnight Crysal. However, since I also started reading Always on My Mind, about 14 pages in, I'm going to say that I've sort of reached my goal for this weekend.
I read one and half books! I'm fine with that accomplishment. Though without the interference of family socializing, I'm almost sure I would have been able to finish one more book.
