We’ve reached the halfway point of the Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon! This has been a great Readathon so far! I’ve really enjoyed the books I’ve been reading, and I feel like I’m doing pretty well in terms of energy. I am probably going to be taking a nap sometime in the next six hours, but I’m not currently planning to get a full night’s sleep.
While I did take a break to complete today’s 31 Days of Bookmarks project, I’ve spent most of the past six hours continuing to read. Since my previous update, I’ve read five additional books, bringing my total number of completed books up to fourteen. The books I’ve read during the past six hours include:
- Saiyuki, vol. 6 (Kazuya Minekura)
- Saiyuki, vol. 7 (Kazuya Minekura)
- Saiyuki, vol. 8 (Kazuya Minekura)
- Saiyuki, vol. 9 (Kazuya Minekura)
- The Hobbit (J.R.R. Tolkien; graphic novel adaptation by Charles Dixon; illustrated by David Wenzel)
Prior to this update, I began reading Ghost Hunt, by Shiho Inada and Fuyumi Ono. I am currently in the middle of the first volume (out of eleven), and thoroughly enjoying it.
During the past six hours, I have also completed two additional squares on my Readathon Bingo Card, which has given me a total of three Bingos! At this point, I am not planning to try for a Blackout, but I would like to complete a couple more squares before the end of the challenge.
In just a few minutes, I’m going to be taking another break from the Readathon so that I can continue my Halloween Horror Movie-thon. Tonight I’m going to be watching Garfield’s Halloween Adventure. This Halloween special is only about half-an-hour, which makes it the perfect length for a Readathon break. As I’ve done with my other Halloween Horror Movie-thon films this month, I’ll be posting my responses to Garfield’s Halloween Adventure on Twitter while I watch.
When I’m finished with tonight’s movie, I will be continuing to read Ghost Hunt.
My next Readathon update will be posted here on The Unapologetic Bookworm around 2 AM (EST). If you’d like to see more frequent updates, including pictures, thoughts, and polls, you can always follow me on Twitter.
