My first 24 Hour Read-a-Thon got off to a bit of a rocky start. I had been feeling like I was getting a cold for the past few days, but I was hoping it would hold off until after the read-a-thon. Unfortunately that was not to be. I woke up this morning feeling as though I'd been hit by a freight train. I went back to sleep and slept through most of the morning, and after a lot of orange juice and throat lozenges, I finally started my reading just before 2 PM. I'm feeling better now, thankfully, and plan to rest and read for the remainder of the day.
I finished my first book, the graphic novel Persepolis, early in my second hour of reading. This was really my first foray into graphic novels (other than occasional Star Wars or Doctor Who trade paperbacks, which I can't put in the same class as Persepolis) and I enjoyed it immensely.
I'll post periodic updates throughout the day, probably when I feel like I need a break from reading. I may update more frequently on Twitter than I do here.
