My second attempt at the Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon. You can see my first try last year HERE.
This one didn't seem quite as productive as the first one but I was still pretty proud of what I wound up with.
My first goal was to get a big chunk of Twenty Years After by Alexandre Dumas out of the way. This book is 800 pages and it is so boring I feel myself falling asleep when I pick it up. So I was extremely glad that I was able to do 300 pages of it. It left me with about 100 pages left to finish it up which wasn't near as daunting as it had been looking.
I also picked up Witches! The Absolutely True Tale of Disaster in Salem by Rosalyn Schanzer from my library just because it had a pretty cover and was short. It was a little dry and I don't see my ten-year old reaching for it (which seemed like the right age group for this kind of book), but I did learn a little big more on the Salem trials so it wasn't bad.
My least read book for the Readathon was The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis. Bug and I are reading through the Narnia books and this is our next one. She let me read about a chapter and a half to her and it made her ready for bed.
I did about 425 pages overall which is about the size of one largish book so I think this day was pretty successful.
