Dewey’s 24h readathon has come to a close and I just wanted to tell you what I read.
The honest answer here is: not a lot.
As suspected, I spent most of those 24 hours playing with or taking care of my two little ones. I managed to convince my 3 yo daughter to sit down with a book for a while so we could read together. Apparently, being a 3 yo means that you can only do an activity for about 10 minutes and then you have to move on 😉 but it was fun while it lasted.
I did end up finishing my book The Puppet Boy of Warsaw with only minutes to spare. That means I read 283 pages, which is fine. I’m just glad I finished the book. Not so much because I thought it was amazing and wanted to keep reading, quite the opposite in fact. I didn’t like it but forced my way through it anyway… I’ll write down my thoughts after I upload this and you’ll be able to read them (if you want to) tomorrow.
Even though I didn’t read that much, I’m still really happy that I participated. The book-reading community is one I absolutely adore. To everyone who I tweeted with or who liked my pictures on Instagram, THANK YOU! You made me smile and feel connected with the world.
See you in autumn (?) or is it winter (?) for the next readathon!
