Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon: Hour 8 Update


Eight hours have come and gone in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon! I haven’t done much with Twitter today, but I’m trying to break every so often to comment on blogs and respond to comments on my blog. I’m sure I’ll get more internet-addicted as the event wears on, but for now I’m focusing on the books. I’ve posted my progress below.

Currently reading:
#GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso

Books finished:
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making by Catherynne Valente
See Now Then by Jamaica Kincaid

Pages read:
429 pages

Running total of pages read:
See above.

Amount of time spent reading:
Almost 6.5 hours

Running total of time spent reading:
See above.

I haven’t snacked yet. Breakfast was cereal and yogurt (with coffee), and lunch was a peanut butter and banana sandwich (with coffee). I’ve been at my mother’s house and didn’t plan on being here this long, so once I get home I’m sure I’ll eat some puppy chow as a reward for getting through two books.

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland… by Catherynne Valente:


See Now Then by Jamaica Kincaid:


So, I guess the books evened out. But that’s all I have for now! You can find me on Twitter (@lostgenreader) for random updates and shenanigans. Link up any posts you want me to check out. It’s easier for me to visit people that way than some massive list.

Happy reading! Stay excellent!
