24 Hour Readathon – Halfway Point!

I’m still going strong, even at Hour Twelve! Here is my mid-point survey responses:Readathon

  1. What are you reading right now? I am halfway through “To the Lighthouse” by Virginia Woolf.
  2. How many books have you read so far? I have not finished any books yet, but I made some progress on “1Q84” by Haruki Murakami before switching to Virginia Woolf.
  3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? When I am finished with Virginia Woolf, I am looking forward to reading “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” by Washington Irving. It is the Halloween season after all.
  4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? I have had some interruptions. Eating and walking around are necessary interruptions. I do find myself wasting a lot of time on social media. I really don’t think I need to keep reading about people reading, and yet I am addicted. During the 2nd half of this readathon, I will be spending less time on social media.
  5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? I guess I didn’t realize how many activities there would be. New mini-challenges are offered every hour, and of course I have to participate. I also didn’t know how much of the readathon involves social media. I mean, I actually went on my Twitter account and posted for the first time in seven years. Finally, I feel that I should have spent more time preparing for this readathon. I could have prepared snacks ahead of time, made sure everything I needed for 24 hours was nearby, etc.

Time to get back to reading!
