Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon Master Post

Here we go!  Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon is here!  This is my Master Post, meaning that I will just update this page throughout the day, instead of making separate check-in posts.  I will also be checking in via Twitter (oh, and probably InstaGram too).

While I am participating as part of my extended graduation celebration (during which time I will be doing all of the things I've missed while in school), I am technically still in school right now.  Next week is the last week.  Sooo...  I'm not really going to name "goals" and such, because honestly I do have to make sure that I've all set with my school work too.  So basically, my goal is just to read as much as I am able.  I'll keep track here:


8am - Let's get started!  

12 noon - 
         Pages read - 314
        Actual time spent reading -  3 hours 24 minutes
        Current Book - Things I Can't Forget by Miranda Kenneally
        Book(s) finished -  Lumberjanes Vol. 1:  Beware the Kitten  Holy
        Current state of things -  I'm still in my pajamas, reading in bed.  I have been good about getting up and moving around every so often, but am going to need a shower soon.  I don't think I can stop this current book though - so the shower will be after I finish.  Lumberjanes was fantastic!!  I absolutely loved it - I am so glad I started the readathon with that one!

4 pm - 
         Pages read -  610 
        Actual time spent reading -  5 hours 55 minutes
        Current Book -  Just finished one, so need to head back to the pile and pick my next read!
        Book(s) finished - Lumberjanes Vol. 1:  Beware the Kitten  Holy, Things I Can't Forget, Make Me a Woman
        Current state of things -  Feeling a little tired - might need to take a little nap.  I really liked Things I Can't Forget, but Make Me a Woman didn't really work for me.  Nice art, but confusing and rather blah.


8 pm - 9 pm
         Pages read -  835
        Actual time spent reading - 8 hours 46 minutes
        Current Book - Racing Savannah
        Book(s) finished - Lumberjanes Vol. 1:  Beware the Kitten  Holy, Things I Can't Forget, Make Me a Woman
        Current state of things -  Well, I totally missed my planned 8pm check in - whoops!  I'm really into this book right now....  I was nervous reading another book by Kenneally, um, *today* but its really working for me.  It's kind of perfect for a readathon!  I'm just going to get right back at it....


12 midnight - 
         Pages read - 970
        Actual time spent reading -  10 hours 8 minutes
        Current Book -  Anything Could Happen
        Book(s) finished - Lumberjanes Vol. 1:  Beware the Kitten  Holy, Things I Can't Forget, Make Me a Woman, Racing Savannah
        Current state of things - Made it until about 11:30pm, and had to call it a night.  This has been a complete readathon win for me though, probably a personal best!  Many many thanks to the wonderful women who organize this huge event.  


4 am -    I'm totally and completely asleep right now.  
         Pages read - 
        Actual time spent reading -
        Current Book - 
        Book(s) finished -

8 am - The Big Finish!
         Pages read - 970
        Actual time spent reading -  10 hours 8 minutes
        Current Book -  Anything Could Happen
        Book(s) finished - Lumberjanes Vol. 1:  Beware the Kitten  Holy, Things I Can't Forget, Make Me a Woman, Racing Savannah 
        Current state of things - Didn't quite wake up in time to read this morning...  but now I have to get back to my schoolwork - I am SO READY for my very last week of grad school!  Congratulations to all the participants of this readathon!
