#Readathon. Just getting back to it.

Okay, this readathon is an epic fail for me.  Still going -- but last night I was exhausted so mostly slept.  And then got up to go to a breakfast meeting scheduled before they announced readathon.

 

Still halfheartedly resting for it (well, reading anyway so may as well count it).

 

I hope if they do another reverse (meaning start 8pm instead of 8am) readathon they give us more notice.  And consider starting 8pm Saturday instead of 8pm Firday.

Dewey's Mid-event Survey
The Inner Life of Cats: The Science and Secrets of Our Mysterious Feline Companions - Thomas McNamee

Well it's actually hour 20 of the Readathon, but I'm finally out from my life interruptions to be able to participate for a while.

 

Mid-Event Survey

 

What are you reading right now? 

 

Currently trying to decide on my next book – Jump into Sing, Unburied, Sing: A Novel - Jesmyn Ward  in print, or start something else right now and wait to “read” this as an audiobook mid-week.


How many books have you read so far?

 

I’ve read in 3.

 

Finished the last section of Deliverer - C.J. Cherryh 

Listened to about 90 minutes of All the Light We Cannot See: A Novel - Anthony Doerr, Zach Appelman  while driving to the Farmer’s Market and then to and from work

Read several chapters in The Inner Life of Cats: The Science and Secrets of Our Mysterious Feline Companions - Thomas McNamee  

 

All of these were the books I already happened to have in progress when the Readathon Hit.


What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?

 

Not sure – I hope to actually get some reading time in the last 4 hours of Readathon around putting up the veggies from my CSA share


Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?

 

My whole day has been an interruption, but I knew that going in


What surprises you most about the Reverse Readathon so far?

 

I love how much more active the Facebook Group has been than in previous Readathons.

Dewey's Deliverer
Deliverer - C.J. Cherryh

If you stick with the Foreigner series by CJ Cherryh for more than a few pages, you know that numbers are very, very important to the Atevi.  And they have a strong preference for odd numbers, so tonight I can declare that I have finished the fortunate 9th book, the end of the 3rd trilogy in the saga of Bren Cameron.   

 

Finishing my current book seemed like fortunate way to celebrate Dewey's Readathon! 

 

I've also finished another chapter in The Inner Life of Cats: The Science and Secrets of Our Mysterious Feline Companions - Thomas McNamee  (the one about the feral cats of Rome).

 

In addition to mine - I've seen Readathon Posts by:

 

Book Stripping Blog

Debbie's Spurts

Bookish Blerd

 

Booklikes addresses are also listed in the participant database 

Hol

Tea, Rain, Book

Kat's Books

 

Though they are so far either hiding in their books, or participating via another social media outlet.

 

Well it's been a long, long week and tomorrow is a dizzy bay, so after cheering on the other Readathon participants, I'm heading off to bed.

#Readathon. Reading progress: 7%. Loving the night mode of my nook
Law and Murder (Fright Court) (Volume 2) - Mindy Klasky

Surprisingly, though, the night mode sepia-colored background choices don't photograph from my iPad -- just looks like regular ereader screen in photo.  The shadow on the page is my iPad, not something uneven about the Glowlight.
