Liveblogging Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-thon, Part II

Part I is here.

Mid-Event Survey

1) How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired?
I was getting very sleepy around midnight, but I read through it and doing okay so far! I might catch a quick nap in a couple of hours though.

2) What have you finished reading?
Books completed: 1 (The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale, 383 pages, read in 5hrs 50 min)
Sections Completed: part of The Bone Doll's Twin by Lynn Flewelling, 85 pages

3) What is your favorite read so far?
I have only finishes 1 book so far, but it was very good.

4) What about your favorite snacks?
Does Advoccat count?

5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love!
I was so busy reading I have not done much exploring as yet, I am saving this for later stages!

Hour #14

My current reading location: home, nested on a comfy beanbag.
My current read: Longitude by Dava Sobel. First non-fiction of the stack! This will count towards my Mount TBR Challenge.

Here's what my reading station looks like atm:

Hour #22

So, um, I fell asleep barely 20 pages into Longitude. I opened my eyes at 8.30 am and have been reading ever since without moving off the couch or even emptying my bladder. I am exactly 100 pages in with 75 to go. Now for a spot of breakfast and a bubble bath! (Both activities are perfectly compatible with uninterrupted reading.)

Can't believe there are only 3 hours to go.

Must. Keep. Reading.

Hour #24

So, the Read-a-thon is done! Since the last update, I have managed to finish Longitude and started on Ahmed Khaled Towfik's Utopia

Utopia by Ahmed Khaled Towfik

At 1 pm I was on page 61. (I did carry on reading though, and finished it by about 3pm.)

I have absolutely enjoyed the experience, but now I need to have some downtime before writing a round-up post.
