Congratulations to all those who participated in the 24in48 Readathon over this past weekend! How did y’all do? I actually managed to clock 24 hours of reading, which was far behind my goal for the weekend. Here are my readathon stats:
The Road to Dribbling by Bill Bryson – audiobook
East of Eden by John Steinbeck (Part 3 only for a IRL readalong) – book
Dreams from My Father by Barack Obama – audiobook
Reads Started but not Finished during Readathon:
The Book Charmer by Karen Hawkins – book/ebook
Ireland by Frank Delaney – audiobook
I read a total of exactly 900 pages.

I’ve been a bit MIA the last few weeks. I had a busy time at work and then got to go on vacation to visit my folks in my hometown of Milwaukee. This was a busy vacation, so I didn’t get to read too much, but since I am playing catch-up, it looks like I read a lot. I’m back on track with reading for book clubs and starting my Bill Bryson’s reads for my monthly reading challenge (A Focus on Authors Reading Challenge). I hope to read lots this weekend for the 24in48 Readathon. Anyone else participating?

It’s that time!!!! Time for the semi-annual Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon!!!! As always I’m super excited and ready to go! I’ve got my TBR pile, snacks, and clothing (see photo off to the right) all prepared. This is officially my 5th time participating in this readathon. I do not anticipate making it the full 24 hours, but I am geared up to get some quality reading time in that will help me achieve my yearly reading goals.
I want to read for at least 13 hours today.
I want to complete 3 books.
I want to read at least 500 pages.
I want to complete at least 5 mini-challenges.
TBR (soooo many to chose from):
Obviously I don’t intend to read all of the following, but I like to have a lot of options to chose from in all different types of reading tools, like physical books, ebooks, and audiobooks. I’ve learned that a variety helps utilize every moment of the readathon to accomplish all your reading goals.
If you have never participated in this readathon before, I would recommend that you try it! It’s so much fun!
