The Reverse Summer Readathon starts now! I love the 8pm – 8pm eastern set-up. I won’t be able to read the whole time. I’ll fall asleep sometime tomight and we are hosting a cookout tomorrow, but I should get some reading time in. I’m prepared: I’ve got my snacks, I’ve got my books, I’ve got food for meals and plenty of coffee and pop. Updates will be here at the blog, instagram (@carolsnotebook), or twitter (@carolsnotebook) or none of the above if I forget to post.

I’m in the middle of The Sentence is Death by Anthony Horowitz on audio and A Whisker in the Dark by Leighann Dobbs on my Kindle, so I’m starting with those. I have to take a break sometime this evening for a board game. One of our Facebook groups is having a #gameaday challenge for August.

Opening Survey:

  1. What fine part of the world are you reading from today? And what time is it where you are? I’m in Ohio. It’s now 9:30. I’m getting started about 1 1/2 late.
  2. Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? I don’t know. A Whisker in the Dark will be fun.
  3. Which snack are you most looking forward to? Tomorrow we’re having birthday cake. It’s not really a readathon snack – we’re having people over to celebrate my mom and brother’s birthdays, but I love birthday cake.
  4. Do you have a #reversereadathon plan of attack? Not really.
  5. Are you doing the readathon solo or with others? Solo

3:50 am update:

Finished one book, A Whisker in the Dark by Leighann Dobbs. I’m going to sleep for a while.

11:40 am:

Finished book #2: The Sentence Is Death by Anthony Horowitz. Started A Gentleman’s Murder by Christopher Huang.

2:00 pm:

My brother and his family and my mom are coming over soon for a cookout/birthday party, so I’m probably done reading for the day. I had fun though.

Closing survey:

  1. How would you assess your reading overall? Actually it wasn’t too bad. I knew the I wasn’t going to get much reading done this afternoon/evening.
  2. Did you have a stategy, and if so, did you stick to it? I didn’t have a strategy.
  3. What was your favorite snack? Birthday cake from Gus’s Goodies. I mean it was party of the party, not the Readathon, but it was really yummy.
  4. Wanna volunteer for our next event? Maybe.

  1. I’m getting a late start as well. I just did my post and thought I’d spend the next 15 minutes cheering people on so that I start on the hour, even if it’s 2 hours late. LOL

    Happy birthday to Mom and Brother and Happy Reading to US!
