Readathon October 2015

24 Hour Read-A-Thon logo

So, it’s Saturday and I’m hoping to get some reading and a lot of cheering done. I’ll be updating this post throughout the day and.

9am: 4 hours before the official start time

Up a bit later than planned; had one of those dreams that make you feel you’ve had little sleep. Breakfast done, clothes changed, coffee ready.

1pm – 1st hour

Read about 50 pages and had an early lunch, now getting everything ready to go.

4pm – 4th hour

Finished one book. Back to Tolstoy for a bit.

7pm – 7th hour

Put the Tolstoy down to start James Rhodes’ Instrumental as recommended by Alice. At 31 pages I’m far enough through to tell it’s going to be very well worth reading.

10pm – 10th hour

Paused for the rugby. Now going to carry on reading until bedtime.

10am – 22nd hour

Have been reading for 30 minutes or so; currently on page 85 of Rhodes’ book.


I didn’t cheer for as long as I planned but I managed to finish the second half of the book I was currently reading and am 2/3 of the way through Rhodes’ memoir.

Tolstoy during the readathon, I’m so impressed! #TeamSycamore

I’m jealous of you Europeans and your sane start times. I don’t think I’ve ever woken up to start on time; I’m usually a bit better about stating up late though

Hour 20 – you own this read-a-thon! No book too long, no print too small. Turn those pages! Burn through those books! Finished one? Start another! Hit those books!

Oh, and treat yourself to something – you’ve earned it!
