Anyone else participating in the 24hour readathon starting tonight?Anyone else participating in the 24hour readathon starting tonight? Stacey #questionnaire
It’s Friday!! Ready for bed at 6:30pm-maybe tomorrow??
@Stacey I’ve got littles so I mostly only get to read during nap time…or else it’s board books ?
I know the feeling @Stephanie. My son is now 5, so some if my reading will be with him. But you don’t have to read the entire time. It is really just a challenge to yourself to make time for reading during that 24hours. At least that is how I do it. I’m too old for all nighters.
What’s a readathon??
Yeah, what’s a readathon? (On a side note, my phone corrected “readathon” to “read a thong” ??)
is anyone hosting the readathon? Xx
A readathon is like a marathon but for reading. Usually it is a set time frame where you challenge yourself to read as much as possible. This readathon is set for the 24hours of March 3rd. You can find more details about it here. https://youtu.be/H-hHKGkxUwo
Love zoes readathons
This will be my first with her. I have participated in a few through Goodreads in the past
Think I’m going to join in but will have to sleep cos I wasn’t prepared, didn’t realise it was this soon. But Iv got my books at the ready and a free day tomorrow 🙂
Yay! I might start tonight, but I definitely won’t be able to stay up. My husband is giving me a day off from mommy duty tomorrow so I can read uninterrupted.
How about an 8 hour readathon? I can manage that on the weekends occasionally 🙂
Yes, do it and share what you read!
Considering my power is out due to the major east coast storm, I have nothing to do BUT read! Curled up under a warm blanket in front of fire with a reading light attached to my book.
In a sense … lucky you … being able to have that time …. but sorry that you are in that position…. take care and stay safe …. xxxx
I planned on reading all weekend due to the weather on the east coast, had no idea about a readathon…. so I guess I m in!!
For those who have decided to join, I propose that we use this thread to share our progress. I am so excited to see how everyone does and what you all read. If you feel like it, share your TBR too. Good luck all!!!
Here’s my TBR.
So I’m now caving and going to sleep but Iv read 148 pages so far and Iv finished clockwork princess and I am 70 pages into the giver. Carry on in the morning 🙂
I wish I could read for 2 hours non-stop! Let alone 24 hours ? Happy readathon to you!
I’m late to the party finding out about this, but I can start now. ???
Doing it in 2 weeks when I have a free wknd ???
I have not been doing so well. Fell asleep last night after reading for only 30mins and didn’t get started until late this morning. I finished The Girl With All The Gifts just now. Such a great book!
I read almost 200 pages in In To The Woods, but I needed a break. So I read my very first graphic novel. Volume 1 of Saga. I really liked it and so I read volume 2. Bad news is that it put me in the mood for Sci-fi, so I ended up wasting time looking for a regular sci-fi novel. I finally decided on Cibola Burn and I’ve read 50 pages. Going to bed now. I feel good about my day. It was fun. I will figure out my stats tomorrow
I have finished the giver by Lois lowery and I am now 180 pages into caraval 🙂 got me out of my reading slump finally haha x
Okay so I have finished caraval now. Just in time. So in total I have read 703 pages in 24. Making a total of two books and finished a third. Considering I slept and watched a film in between that and didn’t get up that early, I’m proud haha xx
