Readathon prep: Challenge 1

In addtion to the 30 Days of Readathon photo challenge (which is happening on Instagram daily, though I will post here as well in round-up posts), there are going to be a few more challenges, run in the Goodreads readathon group. Challenge 1 is to read 1000 pages between the evening of Sunday 24th September and the morning of Monday 2nd October (Pacific Coast time). I noted that I was on page 285 of Desolation Island in my sign-up comment, but I had already read quite a bit since the start of the challenge by that point. Still, I’ll see if I need to consider those 100ish pages or not at the end of the week.

So, here are the stats so far:

Desolation Island 285-325 = 40 pages

The Fortune of War 7-222 = 215 pages

Rammeplan for barnehagen (hey, it’s reading) 7-57 = 50 pages

Lunch-blad (comics):
2015/7 49 pages
2016/7 48 pages

So that’s 402, with three-and-a-half-ish days left. I need to step it up a little.

Yesterday was unintentionally busy, so I was one day late with my Instagram picture, but I’m all caught up now. Here’s 28-23 in the countdown.

30 Days of Readathon

I vår hadde jeg tenkt å delta på Dewey’s 24 Hours Readathon, men så endret planene for den helga seg og det ble særdeles smått med lesetid. Men 21. oktober er det ny readathon, og da har jeg tenkt å gjøre et nytt forsøk. Siden det er 10-årsjubileum for Dewey’s arrangerer de denne gangen også en 30-dagers utfordring som opptakt.

Den dukket ikke opp i Facebook-feeden min før i dag, så jeg starter en dag sent, men her er de to første bidragene (jeg kjører med Instagram-bilder):
