Hey everyone! It is currently a little after 2 AM, which means we are officially six hours into the Reverse Readathon. The challenge has been going well so far, and I’m feeling good about my progress.
Since beginning the Reverse Readathon, I’ve had the chance to read one book cover-to-cover: Shinjū, by Laura Joh Rowland. This was a great book to begin the Reverse Readathon with because it was nearly impossible to put down. I’m already looking forward to reviewing it here on The Unapologetic Bookworm during the coming week!
I’ve made a considerable amount of progress on my Reverse Readathon Bingo card in the past six hours. I managed to cross off eleven spaces with my first book alone, and have already managed to get a “Bingo.” Of course, as you’ve probably already guessed, I’m not satisfied with stopping there. At this point, I don’t think I’m going to try for a “blackout,” but I am curious to see how many spaces my chosen books will complete.
I have also posted my first Reverse Readathon poll, which you can find on Twitter @UnapologBkworm. The question is: “What genres do you prefer to read when you participate in an event like the Reverse Readathon?” Even if you don’t have a Twitter account, you can still take part in the poll by commenting on this post.
As the Reverse Readathon continues, I am going to be switching things up a little by reading some manga. Specifically, I’m going to be reading the Codename Sailor V series, by Naoko Takeuchi.
If you are participating in the Reverse Readathon, I hope that you are having a great experience so far.
Six hours down, eighteen left to go!
