Readathon Update Hour 16

Spread the love

So I’ve only read 20 minutes since my last update because after that I made dinner, ate it and then went out role-playing. I just got home and I’m tired. I don’t know if I’ll get any more reading done. If I do it won’t be much and my final total will be at the end meme.

If you’re still reading, good for you! Have fun and do the best you can. Here are some tips for staying up late as I have stayed up 21-24 hours all the other times I did the readathon:

  • Drink or Eat Caffeine
  • Read While Walking
  • Get fresh air, cool air wakes you up
  • Change what you are reading. Easy reading now. Children’s fiction is the best. Now is NOT the time for nonfiction
  • Take more breaks. After hour 22, I take a break every 5 minutes. Just for a minute or two. Just to wake myself up a bit.
  • Do NOT lay down!!!!!
  • Keep the lights on. Darkness makes you more sleepy.

About Kathleen

I've been a nonfiction lover for as long as I can remember. I love children's nonfiction as well and love to share my knowledge and the books I gained them from, with the world. I wish more people would give nonfiction a chance.
