Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-Thon (3): Updates!
Saturday October 13, 2012 at 11:50 am |


Hour Twenty-Four:

Well I managed to make it till 8am Sunday morning.  Time for bed.  Final Tally for me:

Arson by Estevan Vega: 96 pages (stopped reading because I didn’t like).

Feed by Mira Grant: 304 pages with about 94 more pages until completion.

I sucked this go round…but I’m already looking forward to the next one.  Now I’m off to go sleep and work this pain out of my chest and back.  Sweet dreams and happy reading all!  Wrap Up  post will come after I’ve slept!

Hour Twenty-One:

Page 232 of Feed.  Still trucking along slowly but surely.

Hour Seventeen:

Still on Feed, only on page 164.  It’s slow going for me.  Blah!

Hour Twelve:

What I like to call Salsita!

Had some Salsita to refuel and keep going.  First thing besides cashews and sunflower seeds I’ve eaten all day!  And I always have to have  a Coke with my dinner, while sitting by the fireplace.  Hope you all have some good eats and fun snacks as well.  Well…back to the business at hand!

Hour Eleven:

Well well, it’s slow going for me!  Only on page 68 of Feed, but at least the story is interesting.  I’m about to read, eat, and watch the Yankee game.  Let’s go YANKEES!  And readers!

Hour Nine:

I’m doing poorly this time.  I fell asleep for a couple hours, only allowing me to reach page 96 of Arson.  And frankly, the book is not good so I had to put that one down and start on the next one.  I’m currently on page 18 of Feed by Mira Grant.  So far much  more interesting than the first!  Hope everybody is making better headway than I am!

Hour Four:

Well I’m FINALLY up and raring to go.  I’ll be starting Arson by Estevan Vega here in a few minutes!  Hope everyone whose already started has progressed nicely so far!  Let’s do it!

    And now turn some more!
    Turn another score!
    A hundred. A thousand.
    You’re a reader to the core!

    Gah: too bad your first choice wasn’t the right book at the right time, but it sounds like you’ve got it figured out now: enjoy!

    That salsita looks delicious! That should fuel you for a while! Keep it going!
    BTW love your site. Nice design!

  3. Slow going is fine if you are having fun. Is Feed good? I’ve been reading but I’ve been disconnected because today has been Cray-Cray. The internet at the In-laws is…I don’t know… weird. So I have internet at 5 minute pockets. It’s hard to do updates. I’ve only read 1 book and half of another one. Man your food looks good. I’ve been eating junk but I haven’t gotten to my cupcake. I’m telling myself I’m saving it till hour 23. Maybe I’ll take a picture. It looks so amazing.

      It is but the content is such that sometimes it seems slow. It’s still quite interesting though. Too bad about your internet connection. Sometimes I don;t know what to do with myself if my connection isn’t up. If I count the 96 pages of Arson I read, then I’ve at least completed one book. Not even close to what I wanted to do. Not liking the first one threw me off. Hope you enjoy that cupcake!
