dewey-300x300Well that was great fun and although I didn’t manage to stay awake for the whole 24 hours I did make it to 21 which I don’t think is at all bad considering Readathon ran from lunchtime to lunchtime here in the UK.

But of course  The Stats:

  • Last book read: The Child’s Child
  • Books finished: 8
  • Pages read since last update: 561
  • Total pages read: 1621
  • Amount of time spent reading since last update: 2 hour 37 minutes
  • Total time spent reading: 13 hours 10 minutes

Stuff

The Suicide Club was great fun and turned out to be the third book on my stack which had originally been published in French, not intentional but a nice coincidence. My last book was the very enjoyable The Child’s Child by Barbara Vine, which means I started and ended the Readathon with two of my favourites of the whole exercise, nicely symmetrical.

Fundraising

I was reading to raise funds on behalf of Diabetes UK and had pledged £10 per book, so adding the £80 of my own to donations already received gives me the handsome total of £444, well above my target of £350 so I’m very grateful to everyone who donated. It means a great deal.
