#Readathon – 16 hours in!




I can’t believe it’s midnight already! Only 8 more hours left!

  • I read more Classic Deadpool.
  • Was about to start Honor’s Knight earlier, but then the honeyman called and said he was on the way home, so I shredded the chicken in the crockpot for dinner.
  • When said honeyman got home, we chatted and then we ate and watched The Big Bang Theory and hung out for a bit.
  • I read the first volume of Locke & Key. HOLY CRAP you guys. SO GOOD.
  • Made cookies. Well, “made” in that I put the pre-formed cookie dough on a baking sheet and put it in the oven. Yummm.
  • Got partway through the second volume of Locke & Key, but had to break to take another hour-or-so long nap.
  • And here we are!

Also, I missed the mid-event meme earlier so I’m going to do it now:

Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now? Locke & Key, volume 2
2. How many books have you read so far? Finished two.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? Hmmm… I don’t even know anymore. Maybe Annihilation, on my Kindle?
4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Well, the honeyman came home earlierΒ so that required a bit of a break from readathon-ing.
5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? HOW FAST IT’S GOING. Seriously you guys, there’s only 8 hours left and I haven’t even started most of the books that I wanted to start. Ahh!

Looking back on it, I was so warm and cozy while reading I was bound to get drowsy. Shawls are PERFECT for keeping warm while reading, but I guess they also tend to induce naps. Oh well.


I love my shawls and ponchos. I am basically a 70-year old woman.



These next hours are going to be sketchy. I am going to do my damnedest to stay awake. I have a new energy drink, and tons of books to go. Knowing that I am going to be baby-sittingΒ my nephew in 8 hours is not exactly encouraging though… so another nap may happen. We’ll see. I’m going to set alarms on my phone for every other 2 hours, just in case.

Who’s still with me? How are you holding up?




  1. midnight! That reminds me that it’s WAY past my bedtime. πŸ˜‰ And yes–I’m ALWAYS surprised at how quickly the readathon goes. Hope your second half is fabulous!


  2. Oooh, those cookies look so goooood. My sister makes some like that, not nearly often enough for my liking. πŸ˜›

    That shawl is actually very glamorous. It reminds me more of a wrap from a period drama than something best worn with wrinkly stockings and a night cap!

    This readathon went by faster than any before I think. I have no idea why, but it didn’t feel nearly long enough to get significant reading done! *eyes clock suspiciously*
