Once again I’m late with this post. This weekend I participated in Dewey’s 24-hour Read-a-thon and I want to write a quick wrap-up on that.
The read-a-thon started on Saturday 14:00 my time. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to start reading until 18:00 because I had a (book related, yay) meeting. On Saturday, I ended up reading from 18:00 until 02:00, with a one hour TV break. On Sunday I read from 10:00 until the end time of 14:00. So in total I only read 12 out of 24 hours, but alas.
I had grande plans for reading, and while I didn’t read everything I had planned, I’m still pretty satisfied with the progress. I started off with the last bit of The Three-Body Problem. I don’t know why, but the first 50 pages I read during the read-a-thon took me hours. After a TV break I gave up and started reading Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which I finished that same night. The next morning I finished The Three-Body Problem and I read a chapter from Making Sense of Japanese. I ‘only’ read 293 pages during the read-a-thon, but I’m glad I finished two books!
I really enjoyed this read-a-thon. I didn’t participate super actively mostly because I was without a laptop, but I did check social media tags (especially Instagram) regularly and shared my progress and little things on Instagram and Twitter as well. It was fun seeing what other people were up to!
If I am able to, I definitely will be participating again next time 🙂
