This past weekend I did my own version of the Dewey Readathon and some of my friends even participated!
Originally I had created the event as a way to jump start my reading habits again after finishing my MLIS (where I had very little time for “fun” reading). I also wanted to clean up some of my TBR list, as well as a few books I was in the middle of and just hadn’t quite gotten around to finishing. I also, obviously, had to include crocheting. Ultimately, the day was super fun, albeit exhausting. You can find all of the tweets from the event at:
including some photos of my reaction to a huge plot twist in The Woman in the Window, as well as my finished crochet project! (hint: it’s a rainbow mermaid tail for a baby blanket!)
The breakdown of my day went a little something like this:
- 6:15 am Wake up, get coffee ASAP
- 6:24 am Start reading Fool Moon
- 8:48 am Finish book and get breakfast
- 9:00 am Start The Woman in the Window (I was on disc 7/12 of the audio book)
- 9:15 am Begin crocheting
- 12:30 pm Force myself to eat lunch and drink more water even though I desperately want/need caffeine
- 3:35 (ish) pm Finish audio book as well as crochet project
- 3:35 (ish) pm to 4:00 pm Take a break from books because I am in the world’s worst book coma
- 4:04 pm Begin Red Clocks
- 5:50 pm to 6:50 pm Go out to eat with the fiance
And that was pretty much my demise… Once I had lost my momentum of reading and started to really feel the compounding book coma’s and haddock chips in my belly I was toast for the night.
