Honestly, the first day of #24in48 went a lot better than I thought it would. I went in with very low reading expectations because I knew I had to work this morning, and I also had concert tickets to an outdoor musical festival that lasted most of the day. However, I was still able to sneak in some reading (a little over 5 hours!). The books I finished were all shorter works (a novella, a graphic novel, and a short story) and I also started a new audiobook that I’m really enjoying. Tomorrow I’m expecting to read from some longer books compared to today; there are three in particular that I have my eye on, and I’ll have to see which I’m in the right mood for. I think I’m absolutely going to meet my tentative goal to read for 12 hours during the readathon (I knew going in I’d never hit 24, and that’s OK!) and I’m really looking forward to some quality reading/relaxing time after a crazy work week and crazy day today.
So here are my stats:
# of books finished: 3
Audiobook time: 2 hours
Total time spent reading: 5.17 hours
So here’s what I finished on Day 1 of #24in48:
Binti by Nnedi Okorafor – 4 stars
Saga, Volume 6 by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples – 4 stars
Six Months, Three Days by Charlie Jane Anders (short story) – 3.5 stars
And I read from these, but haven’t finished them yet:
The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler (audiobook)
How is everyone’s readathon going so far? Let me know!
