I’m writing this post in English, as the read-a-thon is international! And please bear with me, when we reach the night, my English might be a little weird 😉
So I’m going to try yet another read-a-thon and I hope this will be more of a success than the last one, which was a Danish one. I’ve never participated in Dewey’s read-a-thon before, so I’m very excited. Cross your fingers for me!
I have my stack of books, which include The Archived, Weird Things Customers Say in Bookstores, Cirque du freak and the Vampires Assistant, Snakecharm, Skyggehævn and Bunker 137. I doubt that I’m going to read all of them, and maybe I will choose an entirely different book, who knows? But with these, I have something to choose from.
I’ve also got some snacks, both grapes and some candy for the late hours!
I will update this post on my reading progress. And I will also be tweeting here with my progress, maybe more than in this post.
2 pm: The read-a-thon starts and I’m so excited for my first book, which is The Archived
4:15 pm: I’ve read 76 pages in The Archived. It’s good so far, but a bit confusing and not what I expected. Can’t wait to see where it’s taking me. Though I’m reading a bit slow. I’m just taking a small break to rest my eyes and cheer for some of the other lovely readers. Yes, I’m also a cheerleader. Happy reading everyone 🙂
7:32 pm: I’ve reached page 193, and I’m really enjoying the story so far. Still not what I expected, but not as confusing any more, and quite exciting.
11:00 pm: I’ve finished my first book! Took a while, but I’m proud of myself 🙂 It was really good! I’m starting Cirque du Freak by Darren Shan now.
1:30 am: I’m currently 53 pages in Cirque du Freak. I’ve read the book before, in Danish, a bind-up of the first two books, but it’s so many years ago, I can’t remember much. It’s really fun and light, just what I need at the moment. My eyes are heavy and my brain sluggish, but I will continue reading!
5:00 am: I’ve finished the second book! I’m actually proud of myself, even though I haven’t read as much as some other. I’ve read a total of 504 pages! Right now I feel like I’m falling over from tiredness! Now I’m going to read More weird things customers say in bookstores!
6.33 am: So, I’ve finished More weird things customers say in bookstores so much fun, just as I expected. Now I will read a Danish book called Bunker 137. A horror book I believe. I’m actually not as tired as earlier, or maybe over-tired. But my eyes are still really heave!
7.46 am: Still awake. Sort of. I’m giving up on Bunker 137 and continuing with a kindle book I’ve been reading How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire. I’m currently 51% into the book. (Can’t find the page count for this book!)
