Hello, everyone! We are officially six hours into the Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon, and it’s been going really well so far! I’ve been reading almost non-stop since the Readathon started, and the hours have gone much faster than I anticipated. I’m sure this is because of the novels I have chosen to read, which have been wonderful.
Since my initial Readathon post, I have read a total of three books from cover-to-cover:
- Sideways Stories From Wayside School (Louis Sachar)
- Wayside School Is Falling Down (Louis Sachar)
- Exit Strategy (Martha Wells)
I am currently reading Capturing the Devil, by Kerri Maniscalco, which is the fourth book in the Stalking Jack the Ripper series. It’s been excellent so far, and I’m really looking forward to finding out how the story ends.
While the Readathon has been fairly easy up until this point, the next six hours will probably be a little more difficult for me. In fact, this may turn out to be the most difficult part of the Readathon. This is the time of day when I am usually tempted to take a nap, but I am determined to resist…because I really do want to continue reading.
My next Readathon update will be posted around 8 PM (Eastern time), but I will be posting a review of Exit Strategy a little later this afternoon. If you’re interested in reading reviews of any of the other titles I have finished so far, please let me know by commenting on this post.
