***UPDATED IN HOUR 19****
It's 2 a.m. here and I'm now reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I'm going to read as long as I can and then probably fall asleep. I'm planning on waking up and posting before the 24 hours is up. Hang in there everyone!
**Hour 12 Update***
The 24-hour read-a-thon is officially half over. I hit a bit of a wall around 4 p.m. (it's now 8 p.m. here) and I took a nap. I also had to play with the pup for awhile (see above), so my momentum definitely slowed down. I'm hoping I can keep going for quite awhile though. Up next is French Milk**, then Affinity or Harry Potter 4.
Here's how I've done sine 8 a.m. this morning...
Pages Read: 1,148 pages
Books Finished: 4 (Twelve Angry Men, Are Women Human?, Unafraid, Howl's Moving Castle, Persepolis)
Breaks Taken: 8 (blogging, lunch, blogging, nap, played with Ollie, dinner)
Coffee Consumed: 4 cups + a Starbucks Doubleshot
Music Listened To: Adele, Joshua Radin and The Avett Brothers
Current Location: Back and forth between the chair in my library (see above) and the couch.
Biggest Distraction: A random wasp that was flying around my house (don't worry, my husband and I teamed up and killed it).
Mini-Challenges Completed: 9
**So update on French Milk. I opened the book to start reading and realized that the first page is #27 (see above). It was missing the first 26 pages of the book. I bought this at Powell's in Portland last year and had been so excited to read it. I'm pretty bummed out, so that's not cool.
**Another note on French Milk**
A Powell's staff member e-mailed me and offered to send a new copy of French Milk. How incredibly awesome are they! Seriously guys, book people are the best!
