The Dewey’s 24 Hour Reverse Readathon ended just a few moments ago, and I’m feeling really good about what I was able to accomplish today. I enjoyed all of the books I read, and I’m glad that I decided to approach the challenge with a more laid-back attitude.
Now that the Reverse Readathon is over, I am feeling somewhat tired, but nowhere near as drained as I felt at the end of the April Readathon. I think that the evening start time had a lot to do with this, combined with my willingness to take short naps.
During the Reverse Readathon, I was able to complete several books from my TBR shelves. I read a total of five books from cover-to-cover, including:
- Shinjū (Laura Joh Rowland)
- Codename Sailor V, vol. 1 (Naoko Takeuchi)
- Codename Sailor V, vol. 2 (Naoko Takeuchi)
- Defy or Defend (Gail Carriger)
- Aliens vs. Predator (Randy Stradley, Phill Norwood, and Chris Warner)
In addition to these titles, I also began reading Redshirts, by John Scalzi, prior to the conclusion of the Reverse Readathon. I was unable to complete it before time ran out, but I am currently a little over halfway through the book, and plan to finish it once I’ve had a chance to get a full night’s sleep.
Even though I didn’t have time to finish my most recent book, I was able to complete two additional squares on my Reverse Readathon Bingo card! Bingo was a lot of fun, and I will definitely make a point of participating in this activity again during the next Readathon (which should happen in October).
If you have been following my updates on Twitter during the Reverse Readathon, I have posted one last poll which asks: “Which of today’s titles would you most like to see me review on The Unapologetic Bookworm next week?” You can cast your vote by going to Twitter @UnapologBkworm. If you don’t have a Twitter account, you can also vote by commenting on this post.
Thank you all so much for cheering me on during the past 24 hours! I’m going to go get some much-needed sleep, but I hope you will come back tomorrow to help me celebrate National Book Lovers Day.
