Final Score for 24 hour readathon

Hello everyone!

So I am a little late, but I am wrapping up my readathon. And continuing the Sci-fi one. ^_^ Loving life. Reading is life.

So my score, as it were.

Ready Player One-I had read 138 pages so far. Also so far I am getting the hype. It is Amazing!! I had really hard time putting it down. It is the reason why I am 30ish minutes over the readathon. I love it. And will put a half-time review up soon.

 

Anne of Avonlea-About 140 or so pages read, and I want to finish in the next week or so, but it is not a priority with the sci-fi readathon going on. But it is a fun read, and I still love it.

 

Spock’s world-100 or so pages. I think the fact that it is in sections and not chapters hurt my pace some here. The others I read chapters before switching off. But with this one, I had to read a lot more when the book came up in its turn came up came up. Still, it is one of the Best Star Trek Novels I have read to date. And it will be part of the reading list for the current readathon. So no worries. ^_^

 

Under the Lilacs-73 pages. I had a hard time focusing on it. Especially after falling in love with Ready Player One. The others I had read a long time before. So it was easier to get into those three. But I really like Under the Lilacs so far. And will continue it for the LMA Challenge for this month. Whew, I got a lot of reading to do this month. And right now I am kind of in love with that.

 

Also, I listened to a number of audio books as I read, mostly on the side and mostly short stories. I have a hard time focusing unless there is some sound. And I found out years ago that I can somehow divide my attention when I am reading a book at the same time I am listening to an audiobook. Nobody tends to believe me when I say I can follow both at the same time. NOt all the details of course. But I can follow all the details of the written book and get the general idea of the audio. So here is the list of short stories listened to. ^_^

 

The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County

The Tell-Tale Heart

The Masque of the Red Death

Aunt Kipp-LMA Challenge

A Country Christmas-LMA Challenge

An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

The Necklace

The Scarlet Ibis

 

There ya go. All the material I had stuffed my brain within the last 24 hours. Thank you, and good night. I am exhausted.

SciFiJune Readathon

 

Oh, I was just reminded that Seasons of Reading Readathons started it’s SciFi Summer Readathon today! It started at midnight. How is that for serendipity? It goes until the fourteenth of the same month. There is a prize, but I think I’ll only participate to motivate myself to read more SciFi and Fantasy this month. 🙂

So my list for this one. By the by. Yes in readathons this long, you do sleep. 😛

Ready Player One

Changes-part of the Collegium Chronicles series

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

As many Star Trek Novels as I can fit in! So far, that would be Spock’s World and The Tears of the Singers

So let’s see. Doing my own 24-hour readathon today. Plus starting #SciFiSummerJune. And I am seeing if I can start up the LMA Reading Challenge if one is not already going on that is. Think I gave myself enough to do bookwise this month?
