My brain is all weird and I can’t really make sense of the world. Thought it was time for a break and looked at the clock to see it is just the start of hour 9. I went over to the Dewey’s site and as usual I just read what minichallenges was up, thinking I would participate in some before I start my cheer-leading shift. I almost skipped over the ”winners” part and only looked because I saw a word that was closely familiar to my own name, and yes, there it was! I never thought I would win, but wow that really spurs my motivation to continue for the entire night and next day! (it’s 10 pm here)

I’ve read just over 100 pages in Outlander which is a 800 page book, something I did not know when I selected it for the readathon. Had I known I would probably not have picked it, but I’m glad I did since I’ve been enjoying it. After ”part one” in Outlander I decided to go for another read and turned to Insurgent, the book I was reading before this readathon. Since it is a YA the reading feels a little lighter and not so heavy as Outlander which improved my mood, and so far no books finished yet. I will definitely be able to finish Insurgent during the readathon since I only have about 80 pages left or so, but the prospects of finishing Outlander are non-existent. I am a slow reader and 800 pages would take me around 25-30 hours to complete, being alert through all those hours, which I know I will not be at 5 am. Now I will start cheering, and we’ll see what I choose to read at the start of hour 10.
And I still can’t grasp that I won. That is just unrealistic to me on some level…
