There are over 400 people participating in this weekend’s read-a-thon. I participated for the first time last year and it was a blast. It’s been a bit difficult focusing on reading for the first 12 hrs. Family and other issues have distracted me. But I’m still getting in some reading. Update: my read-a-thon is over.
Update #1: Hour 12, midnight GMT
Pages Read: 101 pages
Books Read: have yet to finished a book
Current Read: Still on Mr Happy and the Hammer of God
Thoughts on Current Read: Loving it!
Other: I’m off to cheer on quite a number of readers. But I plan on finishing this collection of short stories.
Update #2: Hour 18, 6 am GMT
Pages Read: 175 pages
Books Read: Mr Happy and the Hammer of God
Current Read: Clear Light of Day by Anita Desai
Thoughts on Current Read: Okay
Other: Cheered on quite a number of readers then promptly went to bed. Hoping to finish second book before end of the read-a-thon
Update #3: Hour 24, 11:37 am GMT
Pages Read: 308
Books Read: Mr Happy and the Hammer of God and Clear Light of Day
Other: Not as successful as last year’s April event. But I’m really glad that I took part. I desperately needed to jumpstart my reading.
