The Readathon

So I think I am "participating" in Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon. I'm not feeling super-motivated at this point because I've been in a strange non-reading mood lately, though this could be just because I've had a cold.

ETA: The Updates

I finished my first book. NO DIFFERENT FLESH by Zenna Henderson.

So, I never finished another book. But I did spend some time in the day reading. I read two introductions and the first chapter to The Princess Bride. I read the first sixty pages in Sharp North. I read the first two chapters of Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I read the first chapter in Little House in the Big Woods. I read the first chapter in Evvy's Civil War. The first chapter in The Ropemaker. The first three chapters in The Land of the Silver Apples. And the first section in Forever Erma.

So the introduction meme--

1) I'm reading from home.
2) Readathons are NOT enough motivation for me to get up early on a Saturday.
Few things are motivation for me to get up early on the weekends.
Saturdays are generally my busiest day of the week.
3) I don't have a Readathon pile. (Shocking in a way, isn't it?) I do have a couple of books that I'm currently reading.

Thirteenth Child by Patricia C. Wrede
No Different Flesh by Zenna Henderson (the Second "People" book)
A Brief History of Montmaray by Michelle Cooper
Last Chronicle of Barset by Anthony Trollope
Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw

4) I have no goals for this Readathon. While I'm relatively sure I can finish No Different Flesh--I think I only have about eighty pages left--I'm not sure I can finish anything else. And I'll definitely not be reviewing what I do read.
5) Relax as much as possible.

Oh no! I hope you feel a little bit more motivated as the day goes on.

Lol. There is so much time to get motivated. I am participating as well.

You still have time to get motivated. This is about the joy of reading! :D

How's the reading going? Do you still think you are participating?

Becky 5:33 PM  

I don't *think* I am participating actively. I keep thinking that I'll pick up a book and get started--instead of just trying to catch up on everything that I need to get done this weekend. I do plan on reading *some* this evening. But I do that every evening. So maybe I'm not participating properly?!
