Read-a-thon: 24 in 48! January 2019 | Ani's Plans!


So here is the basic gist of this read-a-thon as copied from the 24 in 48 Readathon site:

Beginning at 12:01am on Saturday morning and running through 11:59pm on Sunday night, readers read for 24 hours out of that 48 hour period.  You can split that up however you’d like: 20 hours on Saturday, 4 hours on Sunday; 12 hours each day; six 4 hour sessions with 4 hour breaks in between; whatever you’d like.



Ahh...  Fancy new logo!

The readathon weekend for January 2019's 24in48 will be the 26th and 27!  I'm super ready for it... I think.  I know it's going to be a weekend off for me, so at least I can try to make plans.  But as life will have it, I will usually end up getting distracted.

I don't really have much of a reading list for January, so we're really just going to play things by mood.

As of current, I'm reading three books which I have a feeling may still be ongoing by the time the readathon rolls around.

 


Meanwhile, I have, of course, many, many, many books I'd love to get around to... though as I have mentioned, I don't have much of a reading list for January, so playing by mood is all I can manage.  And so, for the first time for a readathon since I don't know when, I won't be listing a list of tentative hopefuls.  After all, I will probably just end up polishing off either Lethal White or The Disappearing Spoon... or neither at all.

I have one more historical book to read for my Reading Assignment Challenge, but after the eye-rolling experience that was The Bride, I'm giving it a rest before moving onto the second book in that series.  This completely throws off my reading intentions for this month, so I need to find a different historical book to read for January.  I haven't decided what I will read yet, but I may employ that handy book draw method with my monkey post-its... more on that at a later time.

Until the readathon, I DO want to concentrate on the books above, and maybe by next weekend, I'll be reading different books!


Happy reading everyone!

24in48 January 2018 Readathon: Wrap Up

 

Yeah... We're done.

 

Beginning at 12:01am on Saturday morning and running through 11:59pm on Sunday night, readers read for 24 hours out of that 48 hour period.  You can split that up however you’d like: 20 hours on Saturday, 4 hours on Sunday; 12 hours each day; six 4 hour sessions with 4 hour breaks in between; whatever you’d like.



So... This is probably the most scattered, unproductive 24in48 readathon I've done since I participated for the first time a couple years ago.  I'm not even sure I really tried all that hard, and barely finished one book... if you count the 30% of Entrapment I finished plus the 75% of Siren's Call I managed to read.

I suppose I just wasn't in the right mood.  And then I just stopped keeping track--not mattering how loosely I was tracking in the first place--of how many minutes/hours I'd been spending reading.

I guess there's always July to give it another go.

#24in48 Readathon: Reading progress 27%.
A Fairy Tale - Shanna Swendson

Well, so far it's not Disney, Grimm or Merry Gentry --  the fae and their court are the grimmer, Celtic versions where humans should beware and lots of rules -- nor is it the humorous, basically chick-lit fare of her Enchanted, Inc. series.

 

I'm liking it.  The story and the two sisters, Emily and Sophie.  Possibly Sophie could turn out to be too, well, just too much.

 

"Emily found herself in the odd position of hoping her sister didn’t come rushing to her rescue this time."
