Dewey's 24 Hour #Readathon Master Post

It's Readathon Day!  Yay!  I haven't set any specific goals - just read as much as I can and have fun.  I'll update here every 4 hours.  Check out my Twitter and Litsy (sarahreadstoomuch) for more frequent updates.  Just counted back - this is my 6th Dewey's Readathon!

8:00am:  The Start!  Let's GO!!

12 Noon:  Off to a great start!  I finished the book I had been reading, My Lady Jane, which was fantastic!!  Then followed it up with the quick and funny graphic novel Big Mushy Happy Lump by Sarah Andersen.  I'm now 65 pages into The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli.  Also, my 10 year old read with me for a couple hours - he finished The Timekeeper by Rob Kidd which is in the Jack Sparrow series, and is half way through Say Cheese Medusa by Kate McMullan.  He's taking a video game break with his brother right now.  But now it is time to have a little lunch, put dinner in the crock pot and then get back to reading in a half hour or so!

4:30pm:  OK, so I couldn't update at 4 because I had like 15 pages left in my book and you don't just put a book down with that few pages left.  So I've finished Upside now and it is so awesome!  Dinner smells great and will be ready in about 2 hours, so I'm grabbing a graphic novel next!

8pm - Halfway Mark!:  Had a great dinner break with the family...  and I finished two more books since the last update.  One was very short, the other a graphic novel.  I'm kind of feeling another novel coming on... I might start it on audio, and see how that goes.  I do have a print copy too, just in case the narrator starts to put me to sleep.

12 Midnight (really 11pm):  I've listened to the first 90ish pages of Horrorstor, and starting to feel really tired.  Therefore, I'm posting this update now instead of at midnight.  I am still hoping to get to the latest Lumberjanes volume....  maybe in the morning.

4am:  ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz.......

8am - The Finish Line:  I woke up around 6:15am and jumped back in for the last 90 minutes of the readathon.  I read another graphic novel - Giant Days Vol 4 and another chapter in Horrorstor.  This has been an incredibly successful readathon as far as I'm concerned!  I'm still feeling a little sleepy today, so I'll probably just keep reading!  I hope you've enjoyed this readathon as much as I have!  Have a great Sunday!
