The Read-a-Thon is over!
I missed the last hours of Read-a-Thon because I went to work, but I managed to read around 40 pages of ‘Danteklubben’ when I traveled by train. All in all I read around 640 pages during the Read-a-Thon – not as much as I hoped – but decent since I couldn’t participate today.
It was wonderful to be a part of the Read-a-Thon. The hype, the happiness, the reading – it made it to a special day. I hope I can be a part of it again in October – hopefully full-time.
Aaaand I’m back! I finished ‘Jagtvej 69’ a few minutes ago. That means that I have read about 600 pages so far. Now I’ll have some breakfast and then leave for work. I’ll return in the afternoon to tell how much I read of ‘Danteklubben’.
The comic was pretty silly, but I smiled anyway – it was nice with some easy reading. Now I will take my fourth book, ‘Jagtvej 69’, with me to the bedroom and read for an hour or two before I fall asleep. I will probably wake early in the morning and read 1-2 hours before I get up and go to work.
Happy reading to all of you!
The sun has disappeared and I have turned on the light in the living room. I finished ‘Sole Survivor’ by Dean Koontz. I wish that I could say that I’m disappointed, but I’m not – it was a very typical Koontz book with a far out plot and too extreme characters. Sigh.
And now for something completely different – a comic book for children!
I’ve spent most of the afternoon in the garden with my book and enjoyed the sight of all the new tulips. So far I have read 160 pages of ‘Sole Survivor’ by Dean Koontz. It is very ‘Koontz-ish’ – lot of action, suspicions and conspiracies. I’m not overwhelmed… but it’s okay.
I think I’ll do some exercises before I eat dinner and continue reading.
How’s your reading?
I’ve finished the first book, ‘Genesis’ by Bernard Beckett. A sci-fi book that surprised me since it was far more philosophical than I expected. But it was good. Spectacular ending. As you can see one of our cats joined me in the garden – love when he does that ♥
Now I’ll take a short break before I’ll continue reading – next book will be ‘Sole Survivor’ by Dean Koontz.
The Read-A-Thon starts at 2 PM and I’m ready to read! I’ll spend the next couple of hours in my garden wearing sunglasses while I’m reading the first book in my pile, ‘Genesis’. The sun is shining and this gonna be a great day.
I dag starter Dewey’s Read-A-Thon. Klokken 14 lyder startskuddet for et helt døgn med masser af læsning, hvor hundredvis af bogorme og læseheste verden over vil læse tusindvis af sider.
Det er frivilligt, om man vil være vågen alle 24 timer. Jeg kan desværre ikke være med under hele forløbet, da jeg skal på arbejde om søndagen, men jeg håber på at få læst en masse om lørdagen – og lidt mere søndag morgen.
Deltagerne har lidt forskellige strategier mht. hvilke bøger, de vil læse i løbet af eventen. Jeg har valgt at sammensætte en stabel af bøger, som i fire ud af fem tilfælde er bøger, som jeg har haft liggende i flere år, og som jeg virkelig snart bør få læst, så jeg kan finde ud af, om de skal blive på boghylderne eller ej. Jeg har også sneget en enkelt tegneserie ind, for jeg tror, det er godt med lidt hyggelæsning ud på de sene aftentimer.
Please notice – the rest of the updates during the Read-a-Thon will be in English!
I’ll also update on Twitter ( @piskeriset ) and Goodreads ( denlillebogblog ).
