|My reading location for Sunday,|
when the weather finally perked up.
Hours Spent Reading: 14 hours, 30 min
Pages Read: 676, plus 3 hrs, 30 min audio
- Completed Fahrenheit 451
- Read Lexicon in practically one sitting, stopping only to drive my husband to the car repair shop and then going so far as to read the last 15 pages in the parking lot of the shop rather than driving home
- Made a bit of a dent in Gone with the Wind, which I am enjoying but having a hard time focusing on for some reason. Anyone else have this problem with the first 100 pages?
- Made a pretty hefty dent in the 40 hours of narration that is Gabaldon's Voyager on audio.
- Got completely hooked on the start of Night Film only to find it had started to get under my skin and I was jumping at every noise the house made and so I gave up reading and watched two episodes of Doctor Who instead (we're still catching up on the Matt Smith years).
Dollars Raised for Charity: As with past readathons, I'm donating $0.05/page read during the readathon to a literary charity of my choosing. In order to include audio, I count it as 50 pages for an hour of listening, which is imperfect math, but it's going to have to suffice. That's a $42.55 donation for FirstBook, an organization dedicated to providing access to new books for children in need.
... I need to set aside entire weekends to read more often, and not make plans in the middle of them.
