Happy Read-a-Thon everyone!
The Read-a-Thon starts at 12 GMT, which is 2pm here in Germany! My strategy for reading as much as possible is the following: I read until midnight. Then I decide whether or not I con go on for another two hours. I will sleep until 8 am, get up and start reading again until the Read-a-Thon is over. I will not go for the full 24 hours because my sleeping schedule is messed up as it is and I’m currently trying to fix that. Staying up for 24 hours will probably not help with that.
I will not be reading the whole time, I will be updating this post and looking at other blogs and see how they are doing! Interesting in what I’m planning on reading this read-a-thon?I posted my to-read pile here!
T- 1 hour, 30 minutes
I finished my weekend shopping and everything is set up so that the reading can start! I will take a short nap now so that I will not get tired as easily!
—Read-a-thon Updates: ——————–
2 pm : It’s starting!
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Hamburg, Germany, Europe!
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
The Tales Of Beedle The Bard! I’ll be reading it inbetween books. That’s the plan anyway 😉
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
Asparagus! It’s that time of the year again, yay!
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
Hi, I’m Ace! Actually, my name is Ann-Christine. But that’s a very long, strange and complicated name. That’s why most people call me AC, or Ace! I started my book blog this January! I have a huge TBR Pile, and the read-a-thon is a great opportunity to work on that!
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
This is my first read-a-thon. I’m looking forward to many hours reading time and many interesting blog posts from many different blogs! Happy reading everyone!
6pm: Finished the first book!
Just this second the church bells ring, it is exactly 6pm now and I just finished The Boy And His Horse by C.S. Lewis!

Where there snacks? Yes! I had homemade bread with cheese! Yum! I also took a short break to go to the supermarket across the street. And I will have to do that again now because I forgot something.
10pm: A late meal and tired eyes
I just finished cooking my meal (grilled asparagus with parsley-covered potatoes) and I’m eating it while writing this post! So in these past 3 hours I started two new books. First I started Tales Of Beedle The Bard by J.K. Rowling. Originally I wanted to read one story during books, but it is so much fun to read that I read 3 storys by now. The second book I started is Around The World In 80 Days by Jules Verne! Like the Narnia book earlier, I’m reading this one in German.

I have to admit, I’m already getting a little tired. But it’s less than two hours to midnight and I think I’ll be able to go on until than. Will I go to bed then or stay up till 2am ? I don’t know yet, but I will keep you posted 😉
During the last 2 hours I ate dinner, talked to my boyfriend on the phone and updated this post. That’s why I didn’t get much reading done. But I finished the Tales Of Beedle The Bard! Now I can go to bed feeling accomplished.
