Read-a-thon: Hour Zero
Well, blech. It never fails. The only times I know I really need to get a good night’s sleep – the night before an exam, presentation, early flight, read-a-thon, etc., are the nights when I get insomnia the worst. I was up until about 3 last night, and slept fitfully the rest of the time, so I’m going into the read-a-thon with about 4 1/2 hours of sleep. There goes any chance I had of making it without a nap (or much past 1 or 2 a.m.)! Tip for next time: dose myself up on Nyquil or something the night before.
Anyways, to keep track of my stats, I’m starting off in the middle of two books:
The Lost Diary of Don Juan by Douglas Carlton Abrams – page 188
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (re-read) by J. K. Rowling – page 322
I was too busy last night playing Samba de Amigo on a friend’s Wii to prepare this in advance, but… If you keep track of what page you’re on in each book at each hour break, I will put together a spreadsheet to make pretty graphs of your reading progress. Because I really am just that nerdy.
Let’s get cracking.
