The One Stop #Readathon Update Post

Latest update: 12:00
Hours spent reading: 14.5
Pages read: 864
Books finished: 3


The End
Local time: 12:00 GMT
Pages read: 274

I read a couple of very short books, Memento and Serpentine and then moved on to Puddin' which I knew I wouldn't have time to finish. Really loved reading about AIDAN again but I just wish it had been longer. Considering I did co-hosting and sleeping I'm happy with how much I read.


Closing Survey

How would you assess your reading overall?
I read a fantastic book, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue which I loved, although I usually prefer to read shorter books during the readthon, it was nice to absorb myself into just one book yesterday.

Did you have a stategy, and if so, did you stick to it?
I just took it easy, and knew I would take time out of reading for co-hosting and sleep... But I had planned on finishing a book by hour 8 and that didn't happen.

What was your favorite snack?
My home-made brownies were pretty good, if I say so myself!

Wanna volunteer for our next event?
Sure, although I might mix it up what I volunteer for. Co-hosting is fun but I also read a lot less due to it.

Hour Twenty-One
Local time: 08:00 GMT
Pages read: 325
Slept: 7 hours


It's my mini challenge hour and it looks like I managed to schedule it right! Clocks have now changed, I've had a full night's sleep (oops) but I finished a book before I passed out. I LOVED Addie LaRue, 5 stars, review will appear in the distant future. Haha.

Now reading Memento which is an Illuminae Files novella.



Hour Nine
Local time: 19:00 BST
Pages read: 69
Eaten: PIZZA


Spent the last two hours co-hosting so not much reading done plus I stopped to shovel pizza into my mouth!

Hour Five
Local time: 17:00 BST
Pages read: 196
Eaten: brownies and jacket potato


I am loving Addie LaRue! But it is quite a long book for me to choose for readathon so I will probably spend the rest of today reading it and then I can read some of my short choices in the morning.

Scully has been sleeping cuddled up to me but keeps fidgeting. Now she's staring at me trying to get me to feed her early. So demanding!


Hour One
Local time: 13:00 BST

I'm starting out reading The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. Potatoes are in the oven baking for my lunch. Scully has been walked. It is miserable weather today so I've changed into comfy PJ bottoms rather than my damp outside clothes. What else is there to do other than read all weekend?

Good luck to everyone joining in, have fun, chat to people and read some great books!

Opening Survey!

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? Hampshire, UK

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? I've been saving Addie LaRue for this weekend!

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? I made brownies. Though I may have eaten some already, but I am looking forward to eating more.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I am a software tester by day, Labrador servant by night. Who am I kidding, not I work from home I have to bow to her wishes all day long! You may have seen Scully's warm up post last week.

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? After nearly a decade of readathons this is a well oiled machine. Hah well more like an old jumper. I'm co-hosting and running a mini-challenge.
