Dewey's 24-Hour Read-A-Thon: I Feel Asleep Again

I was making good time with The School of Essential Ingredients when I felt myself getting sleepy again. I got up, walked around a little and resumed reading, only to succumb to sleep around 5:30. Then I woke up at 8:15. Yikes... I lost about three hours to an early evening nap.

But I'm back to keep reading. Stats so far:

Pages read: 413
Books completed: 2
Breaks taken: 6

Who would have known this read-a-thon would take so much out of me? I did get 7 hours of sleep last night so I shouldn't be this tired. My goal is to finish The School of Essential Ingredients and get a few hundred pages into a fourth book. Once again, I wish I had a graphic novel to break things up.


  1. It happens! No worries! I got up in time to start reading this morning, but realized it would not go well if I didn't get more sleep. So I did. :)

    just keep going! :)

  2. I couldn't believe how tired I was too! I mean you wouldn't think reading would be exhausting, but man. I was hoping to take a 20 min nap and slept for an hour and a half. Oh well, you're still 2 full books in and that's pretty awesome.

  3. Looks like you're doing good. BTW- I hated The School for Essential Ingredients, so I'm really looking forward to seeing how you feel about that one. Happy reading.

  4. I think naps are essential for readathoning! Enjoy the rest of your readathon and keep up the great work. You are fabulous!

  5. Sleep is important, too! Hope you've been having a great read-a-thon!

  6. Naps can help during Readathon!
