I’m wrapping it up here. It’s almost midnight and I’m actually pretty psyched and amazed that I made it this far. I finished the AH anthology that I mentioned in the last post and moved onto More Tales to Tremble By – which was really great! Took a break from 6 to 7, finished More Tales, then started Comes the Blind Fury by John Saul – which has been kinda so-so to start but I’ve read reviews saying that it’s scary so I’m hoping it’s gonna get scary soon. Then took more breaks and did more reading – but I got pretty fidgety the last couple hours – and all together the grand total is…
Salem’s Lot – 100 pages
Stories Not for the Nervous – Alfred Hitchcock Anthology – 180 pages
More Tales to Tremble By – 195 pages (I subtracted some for illustrations)
Comes the Blind Fury – 80 pages
555 pages in 17 hours
I’m sure that’s no Read-a-Thon record – but man it is for me! This was fun and I’m totally gonna do it again! Maybe next time I’ll go the whole 24 hour distance. And I think the short story anthology action is a pretty fab way to go. It totally breaks things up and gives some major instant gratification on completed stories.
