We are officially down to the final six hours of the Reverse Readathon, and I’m feeling really good about both my energy level and my progress through the challenge.
In the previous Readathon, the final six hours were really tough for me, and I found that I had a hard time staying awake through the last few hours. But since I’ve done a better job of taking occasional breaks/naps this time around, I’m feeling pretty comfortable going into this final stretch.
I have had the opportunity to finish one additional book since my previous update. Since the beginning of the Reverse Readathon, I have finished reading a total of four books, including:
- Shinjū (Laura Joh Rowland)
- Codename Sailor V, vol. 1 (Naoko Takeuchi)
- Codename Sailor V, vol. 2 (Naoko Takeuchi)
- Defy or Defend (Gail Carriger)
While I have continued to make progress on my Reverse Readathon Bingo card, I can now say with certainty that I will not be able to get a “blackout.” That’s perfectly okay with me, however, and I’m pleased that I was able to complete as many spaces as I did.
I have also posted my third Reverse Readathon poll, which you can find on Twitter @UnapologBkworm. The question this time is: “What is your favorite part of participating in reading marathons like the Reverse Readathon?” If you don’t have a Twitter account, you can still respond to this poll by leaving a comment on this post.
As we move into the final six hours of the Reverse Readathon, I will be transitioning into the world of comic books and reading the 30th Anniversary edition of the Aliens vs. Predator comic book series, created by Randy Stradley, Phill Norwood, and Chris Warner.
If you are participating in today’s Reverse Readathon, I hope that you are continuing to enjoy your reading time.
Only six hours left to go!
