…for Dewey’s 24 Hour Reverse Readathon.
The event starts tonight, Friday, Aug. 6 at 8pm EST and runs to Saturday, Aug. 7 at 8 pm EST. The reason it’s called “reverse” is because normally the event begins at 8 a.m.on a Saturday and runs until 8 p.m. that same Saturday. But in the summer to accommodate folks from around the world, the event is done with these adjusted hours.
I work tomorrow during most of the event, but I plan to make the most of the start tonight, from 8 p.m. to midnight, and the finish tomorrow night, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Tonight I plan to listen to some of Jenny Lawson narrating her book, Broken, with my wife as we have been making our way slowly through it over the past few months. We have two and a half hours left. The goal will be for us to finish it tomorrow night before my wife leaves for work at 7 p.m.
I also might dip into some Ms. Marvel comics that I have checked out from the library and/or continue with the Inspector Montalbano series by Andrea Camilleri I’ve been making my way slowly through since the start of the year. Next up is The Treasure Hunt, the 16th in the series.
What are you reading or planning to read this weekend?
Update, Friday night: My tinnitus has decided to “turn up,” probably because of the fans and small window air conditioners are turned up too because of the heat outside. So, my morning plans are gone into the night reality. I am off work Sunday and Monday, so that’s probably when I will continue with my reading plans sans readathon.
Update, Sunday afternoon: I took all the Ms. Marvel volumes back to the library, after I decided that while I think the comics are well done, they’re not written for me, but for teenagers. Now I’m starting to watch the last season of Criminal Minds.
