I’ve enjoyed all my readathon books at least, even if I have been obsessively clock-watching and spending too much time faffing online. It’s a shame we don’t have a summer one as going down to sit on the cliff tops to read would mean poor signal and therefore no temptation to go online. I’m going to go watch last night’s Doctor Who now and fit in those missed 2 hours of reading this evening.

Hope you all had fun and go get some rest!

It's All Too Much

    You did awesome!! And the racoon looks about right πŸ˜‰
    I wish there was a summer one too, reading outside would be so much less distracting! But also less social and I love going on Twitter and catching up with everyone πŸ™‚

    22 reading plus 5 sleeping makes 27?
    I slept about 4 or 5, but in three small chunks so am more tired than just a bad night's sleep. Stopped a bit to visit a few blogs and update and chat with my daughter but did mostly read.
    How did you like Care of Wooden Floors, I absolutely loved it, every word.
    Cute picture.

      I started early, 3 hours before the official start. Was planning to read 24 hours over the 2 days. It's just too hard for those of us with an afternoon start to do it straight through. Would be nice if they alternated the start times between the spring and autumn readathons. Think America have it easier due to time zones.

    Awww, poor sleepy raccoon… I know what you mean about spending too much time online, though the obsessive clock-watching usually helps keep me focussed. Bout of Books will be a breeze after this one, haha!

    CONGRATULATIONS on a fantastic day's reading, and enjoy Doctor Who! *fades in and out before disappearing into thin air*


    Great job!!
