Guys! I can’t believe it’s August again! Already?!! 2020 sucks. We can all agree on that. What does suck? Is how much reading I’m getting done this year while staying inside for my health.
This Saturday is Dewey’s Reverse 24 Hour Readathon. I missed the last one, but this year I’m on the ball. I mean, besides writing on Book 12 of the Hemlock Wolf Pack Saga what else do I have to do??
As with each time I participate I’m not going to give up sleep to read.That would be a nightmare for my mental health and work schedule. I do however hope to clock around 10 hours, if not a bite more, of reading. So what do I plan on reading you may ask. This year I plan to take a different approach. I’ve been bad about buying books left and right through amazon and thriftbooks this year and they’re stacking up. I could try to read a bunch of the shorter and medium length ones. Nope. I’m starting Stephen King’s IT that morning. I’ve wanted to read the book for years and haven’t gotten around to it. So, I’m using the readathon to jump start my reading of that novel. I don’t know if I’ll finish it that day. Howlongtoread.com predicts it’ll take me 21 hours. If that’s true I should get through about half of it at least. We’ll see what happens. I’ll have a few books of short stories around if I end up needing a break. Usually, I have the trouble of putting the book down if it’s by King.
If memory serves correctly this book is about 1100 pages. I look forward to giving updates throughout the day of how much of this book I eat my way through.
What are you reading this Saturday?
