Breakfast Time – Dewey’s 24 Readathon

I’ve always envied those who can read for hours on end without coming up for air. I’m not one of them. I get stiff and squirmy. I get thirsty and my water bottle or tea runs empty. I need to pee. And of course, since I didn’t eat breakfast when I woke up today. I’m hungry.

I’m off to a decent start to my own personal challenge of reading 10 hours today. I started at 4:12 AM and so far have managed 3 hours. I got through my reading for the book club and the group. I posted in one discussion and will post in the other when it’s time.

I’m about 100 pages into IT and to be honest I didn’t know a lot about this book. I haven’t the newer movies. I watched the old one in band class (Yes, band class. I was a band geek and we had a horrible teacher) in middle school and I don’t really remember much from it. As always, I enjoy King’s rough voice and the way he gets inside his characters. I’m not even to the ‘good part’ yet and I’m really enjoying this read.

All together I’ve read 234 pages in 3 hours. I need 7 more to hit my goal of 10 hours today. It may be because of how early in the day it is, but I’m hopeful that I’ll get there.

Happy reading!
