Ok. My performance was lackluster at best.
The Classics Club follow up:
What book(s) did I read: Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne and The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.
What book(s) did I finish: None. I managed about 150 pages in Verne and the first chapter of Tolkien.
What did I like about the event: I love that it makes me make time for reading–even if I don’t actually get something completed, I do get further down the text than I might have done on a normal day.
I also like to see what others are reading and how they are progressing. [This is how I ended up with The Hobbit on my reading schedule and how it snuck into the readathon!]
Suggestions for future readathons: I like that the progress of the readathon is so relaxed and without pressure. But I’d like to pitch in the idea for a themed readathon where people can look through their lists to find something that fits the theme and participate. OR, perhaps choose a time period readathon where we can find a book written in a particular century or whatever.
Would I participate in future readathons: Definitely.
