Dewey's Read-a-thon, III


Hours 17-24


My nap turned into a full night's sleep when the alarm failed to wake me.  I vaguely remember turning it off so it's my fault.  I did read another handful of pages in the new Bill Bryson book, At Home: A Short History of Private Life, so my final, rather pathetic stats are:

I finished Dark Road to Darjeeling and I'm pawing through the stack as Hour 16 begins in search of something that will keep me awake for a while longer.

We are 13 full hours into this thing and I can't believe how few minutes I've actually read during those hours.  I have managed to meet all of my Saturday obligations finally, so perhaps I'll get to do some concentrated reading before the crash that is likely to claim me later tonight.

The last two hours have largely been taken up with getting dinner on the table and my youngest grandson ready for bed.  My reading was limited but the totals now look like this:

  2. I'm not so good at clever cheers - just keep on reading, and we'll be here (to keep you motivated - yeah!)

    Looks like you're doing well - and we're past the halfway point now :-).

    Happy Readathon!
