[13:23] Book 6
I've just turned the last page in a graphic novel by Joe Hill, which was really good. Loved the style of it! With just over half an hour to go, I don't see much of a point in starting anything new. Will instead spend some time cheering on those fighting to read those last pages :)
[12:36] Book 5
Wow. Talk about an un-put-downable book. Me without you is just heart wrenchingly good.
It's time for a bit of lunch and what will probably be the last book for me this readathon.
Fell asleep the moment I finished the last page of last night's graphic novel. Just closed my eyes and BAM! I'm up and about again now, and have settled down with some breakfast and a new book :)
Have moved from my couch to my bed and am now curled up with the final Sandman book by Neil Gaiman.
[22:01] Book 3
I finally managed to finish my third book. After reading the final page I had to turn to wikipedia to be sure I had actually understood it. I mostly had. Oh well. I can now honestly say I've read a Russian novel xD
Started a new book before supper and am about halfway through it now. It was a rough start where I frequently wondered if I'd overreached myself this time, but now it's moving along quite nicely. I am of course, talking about Fyodor Dostoyevsky's The Double. A short but complex Russian novel from 1846.
[17:24] Book 2
I felt the need to read something super easy and so, I read Chris Riddells' Ottoline and the yellow cat. Short, cute and wonderfully illustrated :)
[16:48] Book 1
I've finished my first book! I read a fairly old Danish novel by Ida Jessen Det første jeg tænker på (The first thing I think about). It was all right, but not exactly riveting - but now I've finally read all 3 in that series!
[14:00] - The Opening Meme (and probably the only one I'll do)
Hello to you all, if you haven't been around my blog before, I thought I'd tell you a tiny bit about myself to start off the event.
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
I live, work and read in a rural area of the tiny Scandinavian country Denmark.
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I'm really excited to read the final Sandman novel.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
The crisps. Oh god, the crisps!
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I'm a 27 year old librarian with a cat asleep in a ray of sunlight right next to me.
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
This will be my 8th time and I don't think I'm changing it up much this time. I think I've got my readathon prety much figured out :)
In just 65 minutes it begins! In the last few hours I've cleaned a bit and set up base in my couch.
My book pile has also grown with a few extra books and a couple of graphic novels - those are always handy :)
It's World Book Day, it's the 400th year anniversary after Shakespeare's death and in just a few hours it's the start of the readathon.
I've been up since 7:22 despite all my intentions of sleeping in and being up to the challenge of staying up late. I've been to the shops for some delicious supplies, and have cooked myself an early lunch. I'll update this post throughout the next 24 hours - happy reading :)
