Hour 8 – OMG!

Guess what, y’all! I finished a book. This readathon planning is hard work, so I’ve spent a lot of the day putting together posts and tweets and commenting on blogs, but somewhere in there, I’ve managed to finish reading Chiggers by Hope Larson. Hope Larson is a comics artist who is also currently working on the Wrinkle in Time adaptation. Her style is simple and sweet, usually featuring main characters in middle school or high school. I highly recommend it!

So last hour I posted a link to a Pogo Remix and I’ve been obsessively listening ever since. It makes for an interesting soundtrack to my readathon. What about you? What’s your readathon soundtrack sound like?

More music to pump you up! I just like this song, it has nothing to do with readathon. Except for, you know, being up all night? That’s a stretch.

  1. The only thing I can listen to when I’m reading is spa-ish music. Nothing with words at all. If the TV is on, I have to go into the other room to read. I’m a very auditory person, so any noise at all distracts me. 🙁 I wish I could have an awesome playlist!

  2. Wow, awesome job on the book finishing! I still have about 100 pages left to go on my first one. And I’m with the other Amy, I can only listen to music without lyrics, too.

  3. I just started my second book – about 40 pages in. There is a woodpecker outside driving me absolutely bonkers!!! And, my dog and kids aren’t helping much to keep the house quiet today, either. 😀

  4. Yay for finishing a book. My soundtrack right now is five kids who act as though they don’t know what “read-a-thon day” is. I’m hoping to finish up some homework so I can map the kids take a nap. *heh heh heh* Lu, keep up the good work.

  5. I just finished my first book as well, go us!

    I’m always listening to random pandora stations, currently on a Lily Allen/Jessie J/Natasha Bedingfield one. Of course I get so sucked into the book that I don’t realize when pandora’s paused itself till ten minutes later when I realize it’s suddenly so quiet XD
