Reverse Readathon Hour 24

Hello, Readathoners! This is Kate from Kate’s Book Nook (ignore the fact that I haven’t updated my blog since 2017).

Readathon is crazy for me this time around. I got married last month (yay) and this week we just finished getting me moved out of my apartment and into our house! I’m exhausted. And unpacking.

Which is where audiobooks come to the rescue. We are in the home stretch! Can you believe it? I can’t. Now if you’re like me, you may have worked on Friday come home, and tried to read a bit. But it’s late in the week and my eyes are tired… insert exciting audiobook adventure!

As the years progress, audiobooks keep getting better produced. You can find ones read from celebrities, you can find them being read in a whisper (shout out to ASMR), and you can find them in every genre. If you’re intimidated by a classic or a chunky fantasy novel or a biography about Napoleon, chances are you can find an audiobook version and slowly (or quickly) get one of those books off your checklist.

So if your eyes are starting to get tired, or your kids are hounding you for food, or that laundry pile needs to be tackled, or maybe you just want to get outside and take a walk, pop on an audiobook and continue to readaway! You can find them on audible, youtube, your local library (many libraries have a digital library), or on podcasts.

A few favorites: Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson, Harry Potter by JK Rowlings, anything Agatha Christie. What are some of your favorite audiobooks. List them down below.

Now keep calm and readathon on!

  1. How would you assess your reading overall?

    I know there are many people who probably read multiple books. I may not have finished a book, but I made great progress! I’m very proud of my progress.
    Did you have a stategy, and if so, did you stick to it?

    I didn’t really have a strategy. I did have a schedule. However, I fell asleep during audiobook hours. I wound up making it work though! 🙂
    What was your favorite snack?

    Goldfish!!!!! Love them!
    Wanna volunteer for our next event?

  2. How would you assess your reading overall?
    Great! I read some comic collections and then did something a bit different and read a language course book and balanced that with a crime novel.

    Did you have a stategy, and if so, did you stick to it?
    Comics first, then switch between the last two. I also meal planned thus time and kept things more simple.

    What was your favorite snack?

    Dark chocolate sea salt almonds and popcorn.

    Wanna volunteer for our next event?

    Possibly?
