Read. Read. Read-a-Thon: Hour 19

DSC00279I really started hitting a wall with my last book, Nobody Move by Denis Johnson. It was a thriller, and as such it was fast paced and somewhat amusing, but I felt overwhelmingly “meh” about it. The end got a little blurry since I kept nearly losing it and tumbling into dream world, and at times I wanted to just give up, toss the book across the room and go to bed. I made it to the end though, and I am forging on!

I have now read roughly 738 pages and have spent around 13 hours reading. Surely I have a few more hours in me? Or at least a few more pages? At the very least I’ll stay awake long enough to go blog hopping and do a couple more mini challenges. I’m a little hungry too – a snack might be just the thing. 🙂


  1. 13 hours of reading is good. Also 738 pages Wow.. Keep going.. May be u could take a break for sometime and get at it again 🙂

  2. Good advice. The blog surfing is helping for sure!

  3. Wowza you are doing amazing! It’s becoming hard to tell whether our reactions to what we are reading are about the book itself or about our fatigue, isn’t it!? I was feeling meh about my book before I got my third wind, but by the end of it, it was 4 star-worthy 🙂 Hope your next pages are enthralling enough to overcome!
