Yes, I, Adam am back again! Another 9 hours have passed, which puts us well-beyond the half-way point! Holy Cow! I hope you all are making some great progress with your new years’ reading.
Although I have taken quite a few breaks, today, to exercise, shower, eat, and run out for some errands (we are expecting 10+ inches of snow and temperatures nearly 20 degrees below zero in the next few days), I think I’m making some good strides.
I’ve read 150 pages of Ulysses, putting me 50 pages beyond my goal mark for that book, and leaving me with just 3 episodes left to complete the entire book! Thrilled about that. Also, I read 100 pages of Leaves of Grass, hitting my goal with that one, too. So, I just need to try to read 100 pages of Walt Whitman’s America and I will have successfully achieved what I set out to do with this readathon. Hope I don’t fall asleep or give up! My eyes are pretty tired (and my brain is rather mushy after 150 pages of Ulysses, let’s be honest).
So, how are you all doing? Things have gone a bit hushed on Twitter, so either that means you’re all busy reading (great!) or you’ve all decided to call it quits (hope not!). Let us know what you’re up to. There are 9 hours left in the readathon, so plenty of time to engage in even more Classics reading fun!
Good luck in these last 9 hours! Read, read, read! See you at the finish line!
