Readathon: 12 Hours In

12 hours down. Technically half-way but I know I’m not in it for much longer.  I am still working my way through Traingles which, although it is a novel in verse, is not going as quickly as I predicted. I imagine I’m out once I finish it.

No comments on my last post but I’ll keep posting anyway. I thought I would do the midpoint meme but I don’t actually see one up yet. So here are my stats again:

Hour: Beginning Hour 13
Current Book: Triangles by Ellen Hopkins
Mood: Tired. Hitting my final stretch here.

Books Read: 3
Pages Read: 898 (keep in mind the pictures and the verse)
Reading speed: 74.8 pages/hour

How’s everyone else doing?

    It’s crazy tiring, huh? I decided not to participate this year, but I’m reading everyone’s posts. Sending positive vibes….a verse novel is a great readathon choice.

    Hope you are having a great time!!!

    Triangles is one of the books on my Read-a-thon pile that it looks like I’m not going to get to. I thought it would be quick and easy, but it sounds like it’s not tooo quick and easy after all. Hope you get an energy surge so you can finish it up before you pack it in!

    Happy reading!

    Cheering you on during the eye drooping hours of the RAT! Hang in there.

    I think I saw that you headed to bed on twitter. But 3 books is great. Hope you had fun!

    That’s a terrific page count! Glad to see you’re enjoying the read-a-thon.

    How do you like Triangles? And I’m a strong believer in verse and picture books (and graphic novels, and poetry) for readathon, it helps give you a boost to keep reading!

    You’re reading all day and all of the night
    And tomorrow morning you’ll surely look a fright
    But just look at those books, a magnificent sight,
    If Dewey’s 24 Readthon is wrong, I don’t want to be right!
