Read-a-thons 2021

Recommended Posts

Well I managed to surprise myself by reading the 800ish pages of Wicked Beyond Belief. I expected it to take me a few weeks but it filled my 4 day read-a-thon. Not the happiest of subjects to read about but utterly fascinating.

Wow that was good! I saw the book pop up on goodreads and I can imagine it wasn’t easy to read, although, as you say, fascinating. 
 

I haven’t read yet today but I’m hoping to finish What Abigail Did That Summer tonight. I think I only have about 40 pages left. That will be two books finished for the read-a-thon and I’m very happy with that :) .

It was okay; spent most of it listening to Classic FM's annual top 300 countdown whilst doing other stuff!

You read the forum though, which we all know is the main thing.

I didn't know this was a thing but now I want to know what people voted for so I'm finding it on catch up.

Don't think that counts! (I also read some magazines as well!)

You have 48 hours of music to listen too, if you work your way through the whole thing!

Magazines definitely do count!

I accidentally skipped a bit already. I blame the fact that it's organised by presenter. I thought I had the beginning but he just said it's number 259 and I definitely haven't had it on for that long!

That puts you just over half way through the first day.  The theme from Close Encounters should be on soon, if I remember rightly.
