This weekend I participated in a monthly 24 hour read-a-thon that is hosted by Lili and Noriko. If you follow me on Twitter you probably already know how I did but I wanted to share what I managed to read this time around. When this read-a-thon started I was still in the middle of the 7in7 Read-a-thon so I ended up just reading books that were on that TBR. Just like last month I didn’t read for a full 24 hours but I am happy with what I accomplished so lets see what I read.
When the clock hit 8PM on Friday I picked up this poetry collection called Echoes by E.F. Rose. I wanted to start with something I knew I could get through quickly and I knew starting with poetry would accomplish that. It only took me 30 minutes to finish this.
From 9-10 I read Broken by Ashton Blackthorne and I made it 52% of the way through it before I decided to call it a night. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to read through the night because I would be keeping my husband awake if I did.
Saturday morning I woke up at 5:30 but it took me a little bit to get fully awake but as soon as that happened I started reading. From 7:15-8:15 I managed to listen to 66 pages of It by Stephen King. I just realized I read a little bit of this for the last 24 hour read-a-thon as well. I still haven’t finished this but the end is in sight guys.
I had some errands to run Saturday morning so when I got back home I started reading Broken by Ashton Blackthorne again and I read from 11-12 which brought me to the end of that book.
After I finished Broken I was so tired for some reason so I ended up taking a nap. I woke up around 2:30 but of course I had to get fully awake and eat something before I started reading. I picked up Heart’s a Mess by Kylie Scott at 4 and finished it at 5:30. After finishing this I was debating on whether or not I should start another book because I still had two and a half hours left but ultimately I decided not to because I wasn’t feeling to good.
Total hours read: 5
Total books read: 4
Total books completed: 3
Total pages read: 360 pages
So glad I was able to participate for the second month in a row. I ended up reading less hours and less pages this time but I read and finished more books. I am really happy with what I managed to accomplish this time around and I hope I will be able to participate again next month.
