If you're interested, the next Readathon will be October 22, 2016. You can find the full wrap and volunteer sign-ups here.
SO, it was a busy day, as it always is. There was lots going on behind the scenes, but I did carve out some time to read...especially when Allison, my personal Readathon MVP, got addicted to Twitter and hosted there for FOUR HOURS! Hello, READING!
My hands-down favorite book of the event, was the audio of Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? It was only about four hours long and completely perfect for an event like this. From her ruminations on weight and fashion, to ridiculously funny anecdotes about show business, this one was a 5-star winner.
I also completed about half of Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer. That's a feat since this one has been a terminal Readathon choice that I NEVER actually pick up. I hope I can finish it today! It's about teens with emotional struggles in a special school who are chosen to take part in a Special Topics in English class. They read Sylvia Plath exclusively, and then odd things start to happen. I'll shush now!
On the "meh" side of things, sadly, were the two comics I read. Ikebana by Yumi Sakugawa was lovely in style, but the short length of it left me wanting. Tomb Raider #1 from Mariko Tamaki and Phillip Sevy was more of the same and left me fairly ambivalent.
If you're interested in seeing check-ins from throughout the day, those are housed in the Facebook group. We'd love to have you!
I also plan to upload my Snap story since I vlogged the thing and got pretty loopy in the early hours, but that'll have to come later since my Internet hates uploads.
I hope you all had a GREAT readathon or just a great Saturday.
Now, on to the next event. Announcement coming tomorrow!
