Dewey’s Readathon Hour 13 to …

Okay, I’ve napped.   I’ve eaten.  Visited a few blogs.   Hopefully I will read a little faster now.   I’m still on the same book reading at a snail’s pace.   Ah well.  I’m enjoying it.   That’s what counts, right?   I’ll just need to pick a shorter book next.  It reminds me a bit of 84 Charing Cross Road except with war.

End of Hour 16, 2/3 through

I think my new Kindle lies to me about how long it will take me to read the rest of this book.  It now says about an hour, but 33% of it is left.     I’ve been reading this since 1:30 minus posting and internet time and nap time, which is I don’t know how long, but way more than two hours.   So how can I read the last third in an hour?   I thought computers were supposed to be good at math.  I hope the time is right and not the percentage because I really don’t feel like reading this all night.   Plus it seems to be hitting winding up territory.

I’m wondering how long I’ll make it through the next third.  Feel okay now, but I suspect in 2 or 3 hours it’s going to be tough.

End of hour 18 and sadly I can’t think of anything but being in bed.   I will try to read there for a bit, but I think we can all guess how this is going to go.   This has been an extremely pathetic attempt at a readathon.   I’ve only just managed a little over 12 hours given my late start.   And that’s not subtracting the nap.

Thanks to all the cheerleaders and if I get an unexpected second wind I will post again.    Stay awake and read, y’all.   Do as I say and not as I do.   I’m a horrible example.

Argh.  Kindle battery low.  Score one for print.  Maybe it wasn’t fully charged.   Thought these batteries were supposed to last for weeks!

  1. I might have to check out this book since you compared it to 84 Charing Cross Road (love that book). Yes, enjoying your reading is what matters! And I hope you enjoy the rest of the Readathon! 🙂 #TeamHughes

    1. Now I’m worried you’ll read it and be ticked at me for misleading you. It’s a good deal heavier than Charing Cross Road, I feel I should warn you. There’s a great deal of WWII, but there’s also the forming of friendships by letter, humor and love of books that filled 84 CCR.

  2. Hi there! I’m cheering you on with #TeamHughes. Hope you are having fun and still feel motivated. You’ve made it this far and you’re doing great. Good luck with your reading!
