Dewey Update #4

It was difficult to resist watching tonight's episode of Outlander, but I prevailed. After making my last update, I moved out of the family room to my office so I could read without the distraction of the television. After only a couple of pages, I decided to listen to more of The Innocent. So, for about 2 hours I listened while playing solitaire. Unfortunately, I dozed off and had to back the recording up. But I did cover at least 112 pages.

5 hours to go, but feeling sleepy

Comments: I'm going to take my Kindle to bed with me. I know I'll fall asleep at some point, but when I do wake up, I'll have it handy to resume reading. I'll lose track of how much time was spent reading, but I'll know how many pages I read. (Unlike the audio book, which continues to advance even if I've dozed off.)


  1. Fergus got me up for the last half hour of the read-a-thon! It's always fun to be around at the finish line. Hope you enjoyed your reading!

  2. I intended to get up around 6am and read for the last hour, but I didn't set an alarm and I didn't wake up. That's OK. I still had a good time.

  3. I miss it already! I don't want to go to work tomorrow, I want to read-a-thon again!

    1. I've decided that it would be cool to live in Hawaii so that Dewey's is ending at just about my normal bedtime! My dread was the laundry. I couldn't pack my suitcase until I washed, dried, and folded clothes to go in it. But since I had to catch a plane early Monday morning, it was a task that couldn't be put off any longer.
