Oh Lord. The weather changed overnight, and I now have a massive sinus headache. As a result, I slept late. I doubt I will get to 24 hours, but it’s my first try.
9am – I read some morning fan fiction, and I am now listening to The Dead Mountaineer’s Inn, at 5:28 done. I’ve got less than 2 hours left to listen to. 11:53:47
10am – the audiobook is finished. I’ll start a new one, at least until the headache eased. Time elapsed 12:41:52
1pm – Ah, the rain. Reading on a rainy day is nice, and we’ve been in drought conditions for so long that the rain is welcome. In the last few hours, I went out for a breakfast, listened to an hour of the book Darkest Hour (about Winston Churchill, and basis of the movie of the same title. I also read the novella The Barrow Will Send What It May by Margaret Killjoy, sequel to a novella that I read during the spring Dewey 24 hour Readathon. Total time so far: 14:41:338
2pm – Back to the poetry book, War Songs. I read 87 pages, with 77 left to go. Definitely, I’ll finish it today (which makes 3 NetGalley books finished out of my backlog). Total time: 15:19:309
Time to take a nap to sleep off the sinus meds. I won’t be making it to 24 ho urs, but hey, I’ll get a good chunk of the way there.
6pm – the nap helped a lot, and the headache is now a dull ache, possibly due to the weather breaking. I’m now up to 2:45 in Darkest Hour. I might be further if I didn’t relisten to interesting segments. My total right now is 16:42:40. At this pace, I’ll probably reach 20 hours before bed.
7pm – Time to finish off some books, since the iPod needed to be recharged. I finished Stories for Nighttime by Ben Loory. These are some eerie little fables that leave the reader slightly creeped out, without descending into pure horror. Now I’m back to War Songs. Total time read: 17:21:57
9pm – I have finished War Songs (yay!), and started One Way, an SF novel that will take me into the week. Total reading time to date: 18:52:49
9:45pm – I’m calling it done. I finished off the last of the book I was reading last week, and 6 entire nooks (one of them an audiobook), and have two ongoing. Total reading time: 19:30:41
