The Readathon Continues

And the 24-hour read-a-thon continues. Well actually only for about 3 more hours ;) But I have been reading in bed from about 9AM this morning.

My progress so far is:
Hester Day - Finished
The Resistance - Finished
Shiver - 60 pages in.

I read from 2PM till 10PM yesterday and from 9AM till 11AM this morning. This makes 10 hours in total. I hope to read more till 2PM but I doubt I will finish Shiver today.

My progress from yesterday can be found here. I did more mini challenges but mainly the ones that required only a little bit of my time. I felt more like reading this time around. And on another note, I won't be posting a personal update this week because of the read-a-thon. But I might capture some stuff from this week into the next update.

How are you getting on?

End of Event meme: I am not going to write a different post for it because not that much has changed since I updated above :)

Which hour was most daunting for you?
None of them because I slept in between, like I normally would.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
Books that are fast paced and keep you alert!
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
Post more updates beforehand, because of the last update before the read-a-thon started was from March, I was in doubt if it was still happening.
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
Somehow I found it less organized than previous read-a-thons. However I still enjoyed it. The strength is the interaction and twitter really helps.
How many books did you read?
What were the names of the books you read?
See above in this post ;)
Which book did you enjoy most?
The Resistance
Which did you enjoy least?
So far, Shiver.
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again?
I'll be there :)
What role would you be likely to take next time?
Not sure. I wasn't feeling so social this time around and I just wanted to read and read. It will depend on my mood. However hosting a mini challenge seems like fun :)


  1. Well done on finishing 2 books! Hope you are enjoying the readathon!

  2. Going well! You set yourself a target and working on it quite nicely. A few more hours!
