Reading for 12 Hours Straight
Hello! I hope 2018 is off to a great start for all of you. I thought that I would start mine by doing a sort of beginner's level of the 24 Hour Reading Challenge that is around online. Instead of reading for the whole of 24 hours, I decided to set aside a day and only do it for 12 hours, thus ensuring that I can get some sleep in because I couldn't afford a day of reading AND a day of catching up sleeping. Anywho, I think it was a huge success! Here's the breakdown:
Start: 12 noon
First book (had already started): Arcadia by Tom Stoppard
Second book: Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
Third book: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling
Fourth book (did not finish): The Strange Case of Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
End: 12 midnight
Total books read: 2.5-2.75
Total pages read: 540
I don't think that's too shabby of a 12 hour reading session. And it's roughly 12 hours- I took breaks to eat, shower, talk, etc. It was a lot of fun though and really relaxing. The best part is, I got to sleep like a normal person and here I am today perfectly functional.
So there you have it! My 12 Hour Reading Challenge- highly recommended!!!!
Thanks for reading and happy belated New Year!
