January Readathon begins on Friday, 26 January

Is it me or is January flying by at the speed of sound? This month's seven day readathon begins at midnight 26 January and ends at midnight 2 February.

What is a readathon?
The aim is to read for 24 hours spread out over 7 full days and nights. Don't worry if you can't manage the full 24 as it is not as easy as it sounds. 24 hours is just a target to make things interesting - just read as much as you can. Some of us rarely reach it; some of us focus on finishing a particular number of books,etc. The true aim is to have fun! Joining is simple, just post below and say hello! Remember to take note of when we start.

QUESTION-What am I allowed to read!
Normal books, plays, screenplays, poetry, graphic novels, manga, marvel/DC comics, university/college textbooks, books set by schools, audio books, e-books - anything really except newspapers and magazines.

QUESTION-What happens before we start?
After posting here, if you want to you can post your reading goals, set your own reading target and tell us the books you intend to read for the upcoming event. This is all optional!

QUESTION-What happens in the readathon?
You take note of the amount of time you read and then post here to tell us how you are getting on. Most people post daily, but it is not required. You can tell us what you are reading and what you think of it if you want to. We all love books and are naturally curious about what everyone is reading. Some people use clocks or timers or paper and pen to keep track of reading time as it is easy to forget! Book recommendations are always welcome, so if you like what you are reading, tell us about it, please!

QUESTION-When do we start and finish? WE START on Thursday 25 January at 2359 pm as it turns to midnight Friday 26 January in your timezone. We will read for 7 full days and nights and stop when Thursday 1 February 2359 pm becomes Friday 2 February in your timezone.

What happens at the end of the readathon?
After the readathon finishes, we post our final totals and the sign-up sheet for the next month will go up. Hopefully, we'll see you there again!

Remember not to get stressed about your reading - this is a fun challenge! Lately, we have been "accepting our weaknesses" and choosing lower numbers with 24 hours being the ultimate goal.

I may exceed that but will not over anticipate. Who's with me?

It's true-January has flown by! It just proves time flies whether or not you're having fun:)

..thanks to the Beanstack challenge - I passed the Hawaii library system's goal (1000 minutes per reader) a while back but they said to continue tracking to help with the overall goal, so I've been doing that.

http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/9055541

ANYWAY...the Beanstack tracking tells me I've been averaging a little over 100 minutes a day. I'll try for 24 hours during the readathon, so I'll have to pick up the pace once it starts!
Profile Image
I'll try to finish 3 books.
Profile Image
with the goal 10 hours
Profile Image
I am on holiday for part of it so going to try for a longer time of 17 hours 30 mins. To read at least two books.

:)
Profile Image
Sounds interesting! I have no idea how much I read, so I'll see how far I can get.
Tracking stats:
Jan 26th: 4 hours and 55 mins
Jan 27th: 2 hours and 26 mins
Jan 28th: 3 hours and 11 mins
Jan 29th: 4 hours and 25 mins
Jan 30th: 6 hours and 50 mins (couldn't sleep)
Jan 31st: 3 hours
Feb 1st: 6 hours (couldn't sleep again)
Profile Image
I'll set myself the usual goal when there's 'only' 7 days of readathon: 12 hours.
Profile Image
I'll join in trying for double digits...
Profile Image
I'm in again for 10 hrs this time :)

Big Stone Gap started on the commute this morning. Back tomorrow with the reading time for Friday.

Day 1

Day 1: 0 hours

Total: 0/10h
Profile Image
Did not read ubtil late in the evening, right before falling asleep.
Too bad, but there were other things that required my attention :-) I am reading : Ik reis alleen by Samuel Bjørk and during the dag Yrsa Sigurdardottir's Last Rituals.

Day 1: 15 mins
Total reading time: 15 mins
Compared to goal: 15 mins of 12 hrs.
Profile Image
Not a great start; I'll have to try to do better over the weekend, or my goal will get out of reach very quickly.

Read on Day 1:

‣ I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
‣ The Road from Coorain
‣ Firestorm

===========

Current reads:

‣ Darkest Hour by Anthony McCarten
Nonfiction; McCarten wrote both this book and the screenplay of the film. Not registered yet.
- I bought this at Costco after seeing the movie (other movies that would fit in nicely with this one are The King's Speech - which I haven't seen - and Dunkirk). As usual with nonfiction, I'd like more pictures. I'll get back to it eventually, but this is on a back burner while I read Australian. Time's article about the movie pointed to me to this resource for Churchill's speeches: https://www.winstonchurchill.org/---/1940-the-finest-hour/

‣ Firestorm: A First Responders Novel by Radclyffe
Lesbian romance set in Montana. Not registered yet.
- Wilderness firefighting ✓
- Montana setting ✓
- Might work for a bookbox ✓
- $1 for the Friends of the Library ✓
- Romance books, lesbian or otherwise: not my usual thing, but I guessed what it was before I picked it up, due to the author's name. Story's ok so far.

‣ Honolulu Prepares for Japan's Attack by Rodney T. West
Nonfiction; apparently self-published. Not registered yet.
- How could I resist buying this little history book on a Saturday afternoon just after we'd had a (thankfully false!) incoming missile alert? The lack of an editor does show. :s

‣ I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
Autobiography; unabridged audio download read by the author.
- Fascinating, wonderful to hear it in her voice, and I might count this as my Arkansas book for NancyNova's challenge. Also borrowed a print copy from the library to follow along with. The unabridged audio is over 10 hours, so I can see why there are abridged versions out there...

‣ Math: A Book You Can Count On! by Dan Green, illustrations by Simon Basher
Cute drawings to introduce math concepts. Not registered yet.
- Reading this one in small bites; it's fun, but I haven't figured out what the target age group is supposed to be.

‣ The Road from Coorain by Jill Ker Conway
Autobiography by the woman who became the first female president of Smith College. Not registered yet.
- Might go to the winner of the Australian Lit sweeps; we'll see. So far, good stuff.

‣ The Sky Over Lima by Juan Gómez Bárcena
E-book
- Not bad, but not really sucking me in, either, at least so far. South America is usually tough for me. :(

===========

Overall time:

Day 1 (Fri 1/26): 56 mins

Running total for January: 56 mins

Goal: 24 hours in 7 days
Profile Image
I didn't manage to read anything on Friday. But had a nice morning finishing Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigiani. Now trying to decide what to pick up next... :)
I also have Mr Foreigner by Matthew Kneale as my carry around book. And as audiobook Airborn by Kenneth Oppel (haven't been listening much lately, prefering to listen to music which takes less concentration).
Profile Image
Great beginning for me. I'm working on three books and may finish them by the end of the Readathon.
Reading - Pity Becomes You by Kay Thomas - a soon to be published novella that I am proofreading/editing
Fire and Fury by Michael Woolf
Listening to: Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson

Keep on reading!

Oh dear! If you read both days you must have done at least 5 mins each day or was it 10? Don't say zero. Just put your estimated time down I'm sure no one will mind :-)

Still reading Big Stone Gap. Because of the folksy telling, I can't speed read it. I was hoping to be done by now, but still have the ending to finish up.
Profile Image
Two hours is what I aim for each day. No listening time today but happy with my reading.
hyphen8 - I so rarely get even close to your daily times. :-)

At this rate, I'm on pace for 10 hours, maybe. :p

‣ Firestorm

STARTED:

Finished off Big Stone Gap, but then there was a chapter except of the next book...and I was hooked. Thankfully the library had the next as an e-book, so downloaded and reading away.

Due to finish Clever Maids today and I've been listening to Holiday in Death by J.D. Robb on audio in the car. The only problem is that I've been off work since last Thursday--I may have to go get it out of the car. I'm suffering the after effects of the flu. The flu my doctor didn't test for, but said I didn't have. I then gave it to my husband whose doctor confirmed it. Now my doctor says I have complications (sinus infection) from the flu that I didn't have:)

I feel for you I am in my second week of it now and have developed an infection. I feel like my ribs will break with every cough. My friend's daughter went to the docs with hers and was told its usually around for eight weeks. Oh I really hope not!!!

I decided to start with a quick read...The Wondrous Wizard of Id...by Brant Parker and Johnny Hart. I was able to finish it. Then I started a romance...Someone to Trust...so I can release it next month. I also spent time in the ...Holy Bible...reading Genesis chapter 4.

Even though I missed the first two days, I feel I'm off to a great start. I finished a book and that always makes me feel good.
Profile Image
Not bad at all :-)

So far 5 hours 10 mins

Although there's technically less "free" time, the structure of a work day actually helps somewhat: it's less chaotic than the weekend, and there are fewer random disruptions.

‣ Honolulu Prepares for Japan's Attack

PICKED UP again after a break (I had to backtrack a bit to get back into the story):

I read from several books today...Solid Ground...Someone to Trust...Holy Bible...A Dragon in the Family (My son and I finished reading this one.)...What Creatures Teach Us...Encyclopedia Brown Carries On...and...So Many Books, So Little Time. Yes, I'm one of those people who reads several books at a time. I'm pleased that I've finished two books and just have one more to go to meet my goal. I'd love to finish more than three because my TBR pile really needs reducing and I keep adding to it.

Hit my daily goal but didn't make up much ground. On the other hand (or more accurately on my sore arm) I finally got a flu shot, which is something.

Tried All He Ever Desired, an ABC TBR, but it's the 5th in the series and after 50 pages, I was lost. Cast about a bit with a few other fits and starts until settling on my oldest TBR: Promise Texas by Debbie Macomber.

Between teaching and errands, I forgot to post for the last three days.
Yowza! All three days have been at least 2 hours. And I do believe I will surpass my goal of 14 hours. :-) Plus I finished reading two more books.

hyphen8 - sorry about your sore arm. I'm getting my flu shot today or tomorrow.

Thanks, it's better today: last night it felt like someone had punched me in the arm, hard. Took me two tries to get the shot: apparently quite a few places here have _run out_ of flu shots (don't know if there's a limit to the number they can get, but I'm guessing logistics issues might be a factor, what with being in the middle of the ocean, and all).

I have totally forgotten to register the amount of hours (more like minutes) read in the past days, Friday is the only day I took notes about it.

I did/do read, but won't list it here.
