New Year ‘Thons

Posted January 1st, 2018 by in Read-a-Thon / 0 comments

I have the day off and not a ton to do today. I have several dishes that need to be meal prepped for the week but over the course of the day it won’t take much to make them. I’m also going to try to get my reviews caught up for the week. I really want a much smaller Task It Tuesday this week and it’ll be fantastic to get my reviews caught up. Also I totally want to get in a large amount of reading today.

The Plan

Hour 1: Read for the entire hour
Hour 2: Cook one recipe and write/schedule 2 reviews
Hour 3: Read for the entire hour
Hour 4: Cook one recipe and write/schedule 2 reviews

I’ll repeat the process until the day is done. If it doesn’t take an entire hour to cook and write two reviews then I’ll immediately dive back into reading for an hour. Below I have everything broken down by type of activity. I’ll only be reading one book because I have around 450 pages left of my current read so I really doubt that I’ll be reading anything else. If I finish it, I’ll be ecstatic. My goal is to get about 200 pages in today.

The Updates!

  • Hour 1(11 AM): # of Pages Read: 27 – I was still setting up this post and finishing up one more task before I truly got started
  • Hour 3 (1 PM): # of Pages Read: 25 – Again my hour was cut into by finishing up reviews from the previous hour and finishing up a pizza. Hour 5 will be entirely devoted to reading. Particularly as the story is getting good!
  • Hour 5 (3 PM): # of Pages Read: 44 – This book is getting too crazy! I love it! So glad I decided to get a lot of book time in today. I am currently 4 pages away from being halfway to my goal. I may need to put off the rest of my adult goals to read more. We’ll see how the rest of the evening goes.
