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:
Reading on a Break in a Post-Apoc Firefight
Top Gear’s Richard Hammond’s autobiography and a Firebird Trans Am
A tie between issue #1 of True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, signed by Becky Cloonan and Gabriel Ba; and Robin Hobb’s Assassin’s Apprentice.
If Satan screams out loud
And violence is the only sound,
When the engines come squealing,
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 never die.
(Gerard Way, Shaun Simon –
The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, #1)
