Read-A-Thon Hourly Updates

Since I will be reading and cheering intermittently today, I will just keep updating this post with my progress each hour.

Hour 13 - 15
This update is my last.  I am fading and need to get some sleep. The last 3 hours I've engrossed in my book and watching a little postseason baseball.  I had a good time today and although my reading progress wasn't the most I've read during a read-a-thon, I enjoyed reading how others were doing and seeing all the different mini-challenges. Until next time....

Hour 10 - 12
I have been reading for the past two hours with short breaks and a 30 minute nap. I must admit that I am liking this Tana French book a tad better than Broken Harbour

Hour 8 & 9 - 3:00/4:00
Read about 40 pages in my book and did more cheering of TeamSweetarts.  Looked over #readathon Tweets and maybe dozed for a few minutes :)

Hour 6 & 7 - 1:00/2:00
Spent a little time cheering, but then had lunch and caught up on the college football scores.  My husband and I also took a 30 minute wheelchair ride outside. 

Hour 5 - 12:00
Participated in Reflections of a Bookaholic's mini-challenge which started this hour.  Turns out I won a prize for my cheering - so I spent some time picking out my prize.  The rest of the hour was taken up by my daily sonogram.  I got another 3-4 pages read :( but I am enjoying the mini-challenges and the cheering.

Hour 4 - 11:00
Participated in A Literary Oddessy's mini-challenge which started this hour.  I had an interesting conversation with my husband on the question she asked.  Cheered on some readers in Team Sweetarts - great progress so far.  Now back to some reading....

Hour 3 - 10:00
Spent most of this hour in daily testing, but I will cheer on some fellow readers before getting back to reading.

Hour 2 - 9:00
Finished breakfast and read over the first mini-challenge and some comments left on my blog.  Read my first book In The Woods for about 20 minutes before my daily testing began.

Hour 1 - 8:00
Got started a little late, but wrote introductory post and did a little cheerleading while eating breakfast.


  1. Congratulations on winning a prize! Go Team Smarties!! “So, please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install, a lovely bookcase on the wall.” (Roald Dahl)

  2. Ten-Twenty-Thirty
    And now turn some more!
    Turn another score!
    A hundred. A thousand.
    You’re a reader to the core!

    Go, go, go! (Team Smarties)

    Sounds like you're having fun, even if you did get off to a late start. Happy read-a-thon-ing!

  3. Sounds like you had a great Read-a-Thon (and the main point is to have fun, since not many of us can last 24 hours!) Happy reading!
