(MODIFIED) DEWEY'S 24 HOUR READATHON: GOALS

Dewey's 24 hour readathon starts tomorrow.

Books to Read
1. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight by Anonymous (translated by Simon Armitage)
2. Range of Ghosts by Elizabeth Bear
3. The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima
4. Fragment by Warren Fahy
5. You by Austin Grossman
6. The Iliad by Homer (translated by Robert Fagles)
7. Wool by Hugh Howey
8. The Killing Moon by N.K. Jemisin

My Goals
time spent reading: Several unexpected events (on-call that resulted in a messed up sleep schedule, last minute plans for dinner and a comedy show on Saturday night with friends that just moved back to town) have conspired to prevent me from doing twenty-four contiguous hours so instead I will be going twenty-four hours total from start time with a chunk of time in the middle that will be a break. Not quite the epic commitment that this is supposed to be but at least I will carve out a full twenty-four hours of reading this weekend. I won't be on the same schedule as everyone else and I didn't officially sign up so this is more like a personal exercise and practice for the one in October I guess.

books: Finish Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (on page 55 at start of read-a-thon), finish The Iliad introduction (on page 20 of 64 at start of read-a-thon), finish two books, and start the other four.


other: Take a picture every hour and complete ten mini challenges.
