Wahoo, I did it! Exciting times – I completed the 24in48 reading marathon I posted about last week!
Usually when I do a marathon I try to stick to short books. This year, since I’m doing the subscription box project, I didn’t get to pick my books. So, for example, The Nix was 737 pages – not something I would normally choose for a marathon! But it was so good that I didn’t mind a bit. Besides, I’d already read 323 pages of it before the marathon started so I was well into the story.
In total, I finished four books, two of which I’d already started. My total page count was 933 plus I listened to A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again, for about 45 minutes.
Snacks were great and included hummus and pita chips, pizza, ice cream, cherries, trail mix, and mini Oreos.
I mediated both mornings, which I think helped, and I made sure to exercise both days as well.
In the 48 hours, I made and drank seven iced lattes.
I wore lots of bookish gear and took lots of pictures, some of which I’ll leave with you. As always, this was tons of fun and I can’t wait for the next one!
