Although I didn’t get to read as much as I had initially planned during my holiday in Okinawa, I managed to finish as many as 11 books!!
Given that February is the shortest month of the year, I think I did great (yeah, I know. I’m giving myself a pat on the back 😛 )

24-Hour Readathon February Edition

Hello, bookworms! As you might already know, I did my second 24-Hour Readathon with Lili@Lili’s Blissful Pages from Saturday 6 p.m. to Sunday 5:59 pm!

Honestly, I’m a bit sleepy and tired right now lol  The last time I did my own readathon at the beginning of February, I started it after taking some nap and that power nap seemed to have done wonders.
But surprisingly enough, I didn’t fall asleep as long as I did the last time. I did take some naps every now and then, but I managed to wake up and I think I only slept like an hour or so. Yay me! Continue reading

Here’s Lili’s post announcing our 24-hour readathon. We will welcome your participation! The more, the merrier!!

Lili's Blissful Pages

Hi Guys,

I have an announcement!!!


This idea was born few weeks ago. My friend,Noriko (Diary of a Bookfiend) just finished her very first 24-hour Readathonand needless to say, she enjoyed it despite her lack of sleep. I want to do it too and so we decided to do it together. Weekend seems the best time to do it and if possible, we’ll do this every last weekend of the month. 

downloadInitially, we thought of having rules but decided against it in the end. We won’t follow them anyway. LOL. 🙂 🙂 Seriously, we just plan to read and that’s it. Maybe, tweet once in a while about our reads, and how sleepy we are. Or how badly we want need coffee. 

If you guys wanna join Noriko and me, we’d love to have you on board. I’m sure it will be more fun with you all…
