24-hour Readathon – progress post

I didn’t expect to be up that early today, but I kept waking up after 5am, so I started early with the readathon at 7:30 – I’ve read a few more chapters of I’ve Got Your Number by Sophia Kinsella so far.ย  It’s pretty funny, there was a scene that had me laughing out loud last night.

Anyway, this is going to be my official Readathon post which will get updated throughout the day. I expect to read a good chunk in the morning, but I have shopping plans with the sister and then work to do this weekend so I don’t expect to be reading all day. I feel pretty relaxed about this readathon – I have no real goals for it! ๐Ÿ™‚


484 pgs read

9:00 am – I’ve read approx 80 pages in the last hour from I’ve Got Your Number by Sophia Kinsella. I’m starting Chapter 11 – people are running around and things are getting nailbiting!

11:00 am – Finished with I’ve Got Your Number. That was a good book, happy sigh ending. Peering around for food now – I had some oatmeal for breakfast but I’m feeling peckish. 174 pages added to the count for a total of 254.

1:30 pm ย  I took a bit of a break to eat half a pomelo and watch an episode ofย Friends. I just started Unearthly – about 37 pages in, but I don’t want to read the whole book today – I’d rather pace it so I can discuss with my readalong buddies. Total pages read = 291. The Husband is bringing me lunch from Panera soon and I will be going out with the sis after that.

6:30 pm – I’m back! I had lunch then went with my sister to Macy’s where she returned 5 pairs of shoes from 2 years ago and nearly killed me with her chuztpah. Then it was to Target where she looked at some earrings/necklace on clearance and nearly killed me with her indecisiveness (I made her buy the earrings). On the way home I had some nice tart frozen yogurt – quite refreshing in this hot day. Back to reading now, on page 70 of Unearthly. Total pages readย  = 324.

9:30 pm – I read up to page 156 of Unearthly. I’m stopping there for today with that book, so I can pace it out for the readalong.ย  Moving on to another one soon. I TRIED to join in the Name that Book minichallenge but um.. yes, I fail – all the books I’ve guessed have already been guessed. Total pages read = 410.

11:30 pm – Read 22 pages of Attachments by Rainbow Rowell, but was getting very sleepy so I switched to my graphic novel, which was The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec and read 52 pages of that (and finished it off) – that one is the basis of this French movie I’m interested in seeing one day. Total pages read = 484

midnight – I think I’m done! I have to wake up in 5 and a half hours, so it’s off to bed for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Are you participating in the readathon? If so, how is it going for you so far? If not, how’s your weekend so far?

  1. I like Sophie Kinsella too, haven’t read that one yet, but several of her other stand alones, she is very funny! The story about your sister returning the shoes is great, I love it! I wouldn’t have had the nerve to try that, but go her if it worked!

    Hope you’re having a wonderful day, and enjoy the rest of the read-a-thon, you’re doing great!

    • Well my sister never takes ‘No’ for an answer, so. I’m kind of proud of it, but also sometimes scared, ha.

      Thanks for stopping by to cheer. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. You liked I’ve Got Your Number too! I should probably pick up that book since so many of you blog friends enjoyed it. I’m not a big fan of Sophie Kinsella though.

    I’m sorry I wasn’t able to pace Unearthly. I didn’t mean to finish it last night but I couldn’t sleep so I just kept on reading. I posted a few comments on Goodreads but I didn’t mention spoilery bits, I’m going to wait for you guys to finish before I do that. What do you think of it so far?

    • Kinsella can be hit or miss with me. Shopaholic was a miss, and so was Remember Me? I think. Those were just “OK”. I liked this one more.

      ๐Ÿ˜› I see.. Well the book is very easy to read fast. I noticed that when I was reading it and had to make myself stop around 150 pages. So far I like the writing, I haven’t really decided about the story so far. It’s an interesting take – the heroine knowing what she is etc, but depends on where this goes.
