Readathon 2015

Reading is one of my greatest pleasures in life. I read every evening but sometimes it's nice to just dedicate a huge block of time to snuggling up with a book. As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when I heard about National Readathon Day, where people are encouraged to read for the four hours between 12 and 4pm.

Since it was a cold, cold day, I cuddled up under the blanket with my copy of In Plain Sight, which was sent to me by Quercus. True crime is one of my favourite genres and this is a hefty tome, so I was really excited to make a good start on it. Sipping from a grande gingerbread hot chocolate (with cream) and with a lavender Diptyque candle lit, the reading conditions were perfect!

In the end, I read 230 pages which was below my target but still not bad, if you ask me! 

I'll have a review of this book in a few weeks' time, so keep an eye on my book reviews if you're interested in finding out my thoughts! 


  1. Gosh, I wish I'd know about Readathon Day. Though... I was busy this Saturday anyway. I'll have to look out for it next year. Reading has definitely become one of my favourite pass times since I got my Kindle. I can't wait to go to bed every night and get lost in a book. Lol.

  2. I completely forgot about the readathon! I'm going to pretend Sunday is the readathon and participate as if it is, how fun.

  3. I love reading too, I try to have a book on the go continuously. Sitting down with a good book is the one point in my day were I feel completely calm and oblivious to all of life's little stresses. Can't wait to read your review!

  4. Can't believe I missed National Readathon day. I love long periods of reading, just getting cosy and bulk reading like 300 pages is the best. I really need to do that with the book Im currently reading because it's really long and before bed reading isn't cutting it.

  6. This sounds like good fun! I'm trying to make an effort to read more these days, maybe a readathon would help me! x

  7. Aw, I missed it! I think I need to find a few readathons to take part in this year... I know the booktube community do quiet a few!

  8. I might have to give this a go one day. Do my own little readathon and see how many pages I manage. I doubt it'll be anywhere near as close as yours. Xx
