Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon Status I

End of hour one.  Read maybe 20 minutes.  The Bookman’s Tale by Charlie Lovett.  Will probably take me the whole day as focus doesn’t seem to be a thing today.   Not the book’s fault as there’s a bookstore and a mysterious old painting of a dead wife.

Drinking mocha.

Funny there are at least three versions of the cover– the woman’s eyes look either off to the side, down, or straight out.  Oh and mine has a different engraving of the Thames.   Odd.

Hour 2:

Almost no progress, but I’ve got a kitty in my lap, coffee and maybe progress will happen next hour.

Hour 3 (10 AM – 11 AM):

Some progress.   Bookman’s Tale is one of those parallel time books.   Alternating from 1995 to 1983 to 1592 – one of my favorite times with some of my favorite people:  Marlowe, Greene, Nashe.   Definitely off to a good start this tale.   I don’t keep track of pages because I’m the slowest reader in America and it’s deflating to think about.   I have a sausage and egg croissant  heating up and it looks beautiful out.   Beautiful, but not warm like yesterday.  Read on, all you bookish friends around the world!   And if you’re slow like me, just ignore the “Just finished my eighth book tweets!”

  1. I know what you mean about getting going. Always feels like you need to prepare so many things before you can acually start reading! Here’s hoping you’re making a better go of the 3-4 hours of D24RAT. (don’t forget to keep up the food!) (Team Marquez)

  2. Hello, sorry to hear about you being unable to focus. It happens to the best of us, sadly. Anyway, I hope your day gets better and you get in as much reading as you would like! Happy readathon! 🙂

  3. I recently picked up a copy of The Bookman’s Tale because it just sounds like such an interesting story – I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying it!
    I’m a slow reader too so I completely understand. Good luck with the rest of your reading today, and I hope you have a fantastic readathon!
