I went into day 2 (aka Tuesday) with a plan: Get the 1,000 pound gorilla that is Brothers Karamazov off my back. I’ve been reading (and not particularly enjoying) this book since the start of February and was ready to be done with it. The readathon gave me the oomph I needed to power through and finish that bad boy. I may or may not have listened to several hours of it on audiobook at 1.5x speed while doing chores and dealing with e-email, but that still counts. Right?
Time spent reading: 4 hours,35 minutes
What I read: ~1 hours Voyager by Diana Gabaldon(audiobook); 3 hours 35 minutes Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky (print & audiobook) – FINISHED!!!!
Total time spent reading: 7 hours, 14 minutes
Total books completed: 1
Challenge: Hey look, a shelfie! Did I mention I’m using Instagram now?
