[Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon] Hour 19 Update

Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon 2018 Update

Myra here.

I am checking in at Hour 19 of Dewey’s Readathon. I posted my plan of action yesterday, and only belatedly realized that the official start of the Readathon is at 8 pm, Singapore time. This is fine, I suppose, as I managed to get 90 minutes of reading before the official start – I won’t be counting that though towards total number of hours completed for the challenge. Thus far, here is my progress:

28 April 2018 SG Time: 9 to nearly 12 midnight

This chunkster of a book is for my #1001BookSwap on Litsy (#SEAReaders Edition), and as such, I can not reveal the title. I finished reading after around two hours and ten minutes.

29 April 2018 SG Time: 11 am to 2 pm

My first 58 minutes of reading (with a few interruptions here and there) was spent at Starbucks earlier after Sunday Mass, while waiting for my husband to do some grocery shopping. Then the next nearly 38 minutes of reading was spent at home, just reading, while husband prepared lunch for us. Yes, I am indeed a very lucky woman. Read a total of 243 pages in all for 3 hours and 50 minutes thereabouts in total for the #Readathon by Hour 19.

And wonder of wonders, I finished the BOOK! Whee! This was a Hail Mary, really, given how dense, thick, and heavy-going the theme of this **super secret** novel is, but it was glorious reading, so I am glad to have finally completed it!

Will write down my final impressions of the novel in the reading journal before sending it off to the next person in the #SEAReaders Book Club possibly by end of the month.

Now I can really dig into my stack of graphic novels. Here’s the plan for the remaining five hours:

Swallow Me Whole by Nate Powell; I Live Here by Mia Kirschner, J. B. Mackinnon, Paul Shoebridges and Michael Simons (four books in all); and Rosalie Lightning by Tom Hart. Did you see the arroz a la cubana (minus the rice) that husband has prepared for lunch? It is yummy-licious!
