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


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.


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.
