I've signed up for Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon for the first time! Huzzah! I've been wanting to try this for ages. Obviously I'm not doing the full 24 hours, and I probably won't read the whole rest of the day... but I'm going to sit down and not worry about anything else for at least a few hours, just reading.

First up: continuing Rest by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang. Interesting thoughts so far on how "deliberate rest" is just as important as deliberate practice for accomplishment and creativity. If I get tired of this, I'll continue working on Les Miserables, and I have plenty more books lined up if I should finish one of those!

I'll edit this post if I feel like adding any thoughts. I will definitely do some posting on Litsy (I'm Clare-Dragonfly there) and possibly on Twitter (I'm clarekrmiller). Off to read!


Hour 9: I'm going to read Les Miserables if it kills me. And Hugo's long digressions on French politics might just do that.

Hour 12: Okay, this book (Rest) is really feeling repetitive, so... break time.

Hour ...I don't know, the website doesn't show me timestamps: I finished Rest, huzzah! I will definitely not be able to finish any other books this Readathon, but I'm happy to have finished one.
