For those of you who don't know, today is Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon, hosted by these fine people. I am participating in my own way . . . which is to say, not very well. And here is what has happened so far. (I'll give you a hint: noooot a whole lot of reading.)
|Haaaa . . . I'm not reading all these.|
Why is it so early? It’s obscene how early it is. I’ve actually been awake since 5:12, but I spent about 20 minutes taking pictures of the dogs . . . because of reasons. Also, Paco and Gizmo are lying solidly across my legs, so getting up for coffee isn’t so much an option quite yet. So yeah . . . let’s read some Handmaid’s Tale! *suppresses urge to laugh hysterically*
|"Explain yourself, human."|
Yeeeeah . . . I’m gonna need some coffee. Shove off, mutts.
Pages read: 17 in A Handmaid's Tale
Things consumed: Not one damn thing
I have acquired coffee. I have consumed foodstuffs. I have read a chapter in The Half-Blood Prince. And now I’m back in bed wanting very much to return to my slumber. Must be time to read a comic or something.
|Princess Aurora and Dumbledore. I would ship that.|
Pages read: 24 in The Half-Blood Prince
Things consumed: 1 fried egg, 2 fake sausage patties, 1 coffee with Cool Whip (= fancy)
Like any good thon-er, I'm bailing 4 hours in for a Filipino-style feast to celebrate a child's 1st birthday. There will likely be an entire roasted pig. Be back soon!
Erm . . . 6 hours later. But I read the entirety of Chew Vol. 1 in the car on the way there AND took a power nap. So my body is ready, as our dear friend of the greasy hair might say. Chew, by the way? Amazing. It has the MOST delightful illustrations.
Pages read: 128
Things consumed: fried rice, chow mein, Thai salad w/ peanut dressing, various Filipino desserts, blue cotton candy
And now I journey homeward, where I have plentiful snacks and comfy seating options but, alas, no Internet. Just pretend I'm reading ALL the books and being awesome and not just swiping lazily at my phone screen.
