Hour 12: Mid-Event Survey

1. What are you reading right now?
I got tired and didn’t know what to do after my cheerleading shift, so I decided to pick up one of the shorter reads I had planned for this event – Sweet 16 #4 Trent by Daniel Parker. It is an easy read, and it’s translated into Swedish which is nice. It’s a little easier reading in my native language so that makes it a good in-between book.

2. How many books have you read so far?
I have read in 3 different books, but have yet to finish one. I began Outlander and Trent from scratch, the first being an 800 page book, which I will not finish this readathon, and the second being a 150 page teen novel which takes seconds to read in comparison (halfway through within an hour). Then I also have Insurgent, which I started before this event but since it’s an e-book that I read on my phone I don’t like to read it for a long period of time. Then I just miss holding a book with real pages.

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
I have no idea. I would love to continue with Outlander, since the book was amazing, but since there’s no prospect of finishing it during this event I might choose to not read it, just to make sure I feel progress. Seeing twitter posts about people finishing the third or fourth book when I’ve finished none doesn’t feel that good. Depending on how bored I am with the teens literature after Trent, I might continue with more of the book in the Sweet 16 series or read Anne of Green Gables, which I’ve been looking forward to for a while now. If you’ve read the latter book, please tell me if it is an easy read or not!

4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
My biggest interruption was when the hour I had signed up for cheering arrived. It took me over an hour to AFTER my cheering hour to get my nose back into a book. I dealt with it the only way I thought would affect me; I asked for some cheering on twitter and got it! <3 This was one of the answers to my request:

5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
Twitter. When I read the last time (april 2012), I read from China and had to have a VPN which did not work at all times to reach twitter and blogspot. So to see the love spread on twitter really makes a difference! The fact that I just asked for some much needed cheering and received it within minutes, almost seconds is amazing!

Half way through and still more than half of my coke supply left! I will survive!

    I have a big book I want to read. I almost always read a few pages then put it down and pick something a little smaller. Enjoy whatever book you do decide to read.

    I get what you mean about feeling progress, it’s so difficult not to compare sometimes. But keep in mind that whatever you read, you will have more reading done than what you started the day with, and that is definitely progress. Having said that though, I do recommend reading Anne of Green Gables. I found it entertaining, endearing and, while not exactly fast-paced, I would say it is easily read.

    Enjoy the second half of the readathon!
