24in48 January 2019 Readathon: Hour Eight Update

... for real this time!

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.

I have conveniently scheduled this update to go up at Hour 8 of the 24in48 readathon, if only because I stayed up way later than I had anticipated, doing such things as reading, watching YouTube videos, reading news articles, and playing mobile games.  Knowing full well that I was ready to crash and that I wouldn't be awake by 8:00 A.M. to post this much coveted (coveted by me, really) update, I'd decided to just finalize and schedule it for posting, then go to sleep.

In the past, I would plan for updates to go up at 8 hour intervals, but my plans are always foiled.  I'm determined to have an Hour 8 update this year!  (My rationale... there is none.  So don't mind me.)

Meanwhile, I had meant to read from Mr. Ridley, but ended up immersed in chapters of Lethal White instead, reading about 33 pages (~5%) of the book in around 53 minutes.  In the grander scheme of things, I'm sure that doesn't sound like a whole lot, but the book is 656 pages long (Kindle edition), so I feel like I've made a bit of progress.

Once again, I'm tracking my hours read with a stopwatch this time around, so the exact time I spent reading, give or take a few seconds, was 52:48:59.

Now that I've had my Hour 8 Update, I will strive for an Hour 16 Update... maybe.  Again, my stubborn determination makes sense to no one... probably not even me.

Happy reading everyone!
