Dewey's Read-a-Thon Update

I crashed (as in fell/went to sleep).
So that's a good 7 hour slot gone.
I went to sleep at midnight. And did you know the clocks go back an hour? I've just realised that makes the time 06:30.
24- 06:30 =17.30 hours.
I might be able to managed 17 and a half hours. So it would have been a 25 hour read-a-hon if I finished at the exact same starting time (which I'm still planning to do given my seeping).
Hold on, my maths is shaky in the morning. Let me work this out.
13:30 till midnight (minus 30 mins for pasta cooking) = 10 hours
If I read from 06:30 till 13:30, that = 7 hours
Total, if I manage it = 17 hours (because of clock changing - they moved back an hour)

  1. Oh no you fell asleep! I almost did too, my mom and I are doing the read-a-thon together and I started to nod off around 1:30 - 2am so my mom yelled "ashley!" and then jumped up to make capuccino.

    I also had to work halfway through so I'm not getting the full 24 hrs either. I feel your pain lol.

  10. On the last of the gallon of sunbrewed iced tea I made earlier today. Must obtain more caffeine! I might need to break out the Mountain Dew.

    : P

    I was terrible at computation and math in school. I quit those classes as soon as I could and took extra English courses...

  11. The math confuses me no end. I just trust in the hour numbers the read-a-thon organizers post on the dedicated blog. If ! had to figure it out for myself, I'd be lost!
