Hour 27: Warding off the Sleepies

On the official readathon time clock, it’s the wee hours of the morning (3am to be precise), but with such an awesome contingent of around-the-world readers, we know there are ‘thoners out there reading up a storm. Our fearless leader, Rachel, is in the middle of the day in her time zone, but your trusty co-hosts Kristen and Kerry are likely curled up beneath a massive stack of blankets trying to catch a few 3am zzzs before tomorrow’s reading.

Whether you’re sleeping or reading at this very moment, know that we’re all cheering for you. Even Beyonce!

Pro tip: If you’re feeling sleepy and trying to read on through it, some pro-‘thoners suggest switching books to something lighter to keep yourself motivated through the sleepy hours. Don’t be afraid to set aside something that isn’t keeping your attention; you can always come back to it later.

Before we get back to reading (or sleeping, as the case may be), a few door prize winners!

    Here are a few things I do to stay awake: Switcg to a funny book, sit up straight in my chair or bed-especially when listening to audiobooks, get up and stretch each hour. And then, there’s chocolate! 😁

    Happy Reading or Happy Slumbers!
