As Hour 9 dawns, I close the first book I’ve completed this Readathon, proudly enter it into the Readathon Books Read database, and put a pizza in the oven. Muchly deserved omnomnom shall ensue shortly.

Meanwhile, here are the figures:

Hours reading – eight, with negligible breaks.
Pages read – 310.
Books completed – one, paperback.
Challenges completed – four:

Whatever Gets You Through the Night


If Satan screams out loud
And violence is the only sound,
When the engines come squealing,
Demons reeling,
The dance ground,
Just a mask among the crowd.
You need to hold tight to
Whatever gets you through the night.

Beyond the cover,
Pages give you color.
That ink will never run dry.
Killjoys…
Killjoys never die.

(Gerard Way, Shaun Simon –
The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, #1
