It’s hour 5 in the readathon and I’ve just read through the first 5 Lumberjanes comics. I’m so glad I finally started on them, the hype is absolutely true and there’s a shout-out to basically everything I adore. No 5 has dinosaurs, DINOSAURS!!! I love dinosaurs!
So that makes this pages read: 201. On to my next read, this time some nonfiction:
It’s getting dark here now, so I’ve lit some candles and I’ve also made myself an Avocado bagel, yum!
Update: Hour 10
It’s 11:30 pm over. I’ve had pizza for dinner, yay, and read 25% of I Mix What I Like. Everyone wanting a really radical decolonial text, go grab a copy, it’s fantastic! Since my eyes were a bit tired I switched over to my audiobook version of Binti. Halfway through now, and I love it. I know I’ll read more Okorafor very soon. After that I’ll get some sleep 😀
Update: Hour 12: Books read:
Also by Mail, Lumberjanes 1-5, Binti
1. What are you reading right now?
I just finished Binti by Nnedi Okorafor (so good) and wanted to get some sleep. But thanks to the party people outside I’ve just started the comic Zombillenium 1. I’ll wait them out and get some sleep then.
2. How many books have you read so far?
Hmm, 3? I read 5 Lumberjane comics, but they’re only 24 pages each, so I’m counting them as one book.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
Haha…sleeeeep. It’s 2 am over here. We’ll see what I’m in the mood for in the morning.
4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Hmm a few. But good ones, took care of the cats, spent some quality time with the family and also lots of time on the blogs and instagram. It’s all good.
5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
How utterly normal it is for me to spent the weekend on the couch, reading 😉 The enthusiasm of everyone is fantastic.
Update: Hour 22
Last night I read the first Zombillenium, so much fun, and I’m currently in the last pages of Jeff Vandermeer’s Annihilation and this’ll be my last read for readathon. It went by so quickly!
I also participates in the shelfie mini-challenge:
Next up will be my wrap-up post, oy!
Also, shout out to my cheerleaders, you’re awesome!!!
