This is the bizarre and not entirely fabricated story of Factory founder Anthony Wilson. Part fiction, part reality, comic and tragic turns, Wilson tells his own unique story in his own unique way for the very first time.

Coming up on the 24 hour/half way mark and I have all of 5 hours clocked. But in my defense i spent 4 hours with family and took a lovely 2 hour nap this evening 😆😆 will I get in 19 hours of reading in the next 24? Not hardly, am I going to pretend to try? Heck yeah I am 🎉 #24in48

Making some progress this #24in48

Started The Lost Road for my #YearOfTolkien and almost 3/4 through Schindler‘s List for my #1001Discoveries group.

RadicalReader @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Schindler‘s List sounds phenomenal!! 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Heavy pick for a Readathon!! 1y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BarbaraTheBibliophage I already had it started, and like our Nonfiction #GroupN it‘s for another group (#1001Discoveries) that I need to finish by the end of the month and mail it on. So goals and deadlines! 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I hear ya! My TBR is practically all time-sensitive anymore. 1y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BarbaraTheBibliophage It‘s pushing me to read more faster, that‘s for sure, and although I feel the pressure it‘s keeping me motivated so far. 1y
Daisey Looks like some great books for the weekend and you‘ve made great progress on Schindler‘s List! I need to start my second book for our group. 1y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey I‘m trying to get it finished, I still have another book for another mail it group that I need to finish this month. So you still have time 😂 1y

Some of my to-reads for this #24in48. Lots to finish up, get caught up, and get returned.

Although, I have a family picnic planned for Sunday, so I doubt I‘ll reach 24, hopefully I can still make a dent in my backlog.

RebelReader I loved An American Marriage and enjoyed Warcross too. Happy Reading! 1y

Posting another photo with the timestamp in the screenshot so I can enter to win one of the prize packs! I'm on the west coast of the US so the readathon ended at 9pm for me. #24in48 This was my first 24 in 48 readathon and it was so much fun!! I'm over the moon that I actually made it. Also, I didn't ever screw up my stopwatch! Amazing 😂

And a start on a chunkster

910 pages read

14 hours and 9 minutes total spent reading.

mrozzz Great job! It‘s a mighty goal. 2y

My first book of #24in48 is in the books!!! 5 hours of total reading time. Which I am sad about but I will rally... After a nap.

ReadLikeABitchQueen @danibolahood what are you using to track your reading? 2y
danibolahood @JanaReads it's an app called time sheet. I just downloaded the first one I found in the play store but it does the job. It's supposed to be for work tracking but you can keep notes and track different projects so it's working for me. 2y
ReadLikeABitchQueen Thanks, I'll check it out. 2y

Just signed up for #24in48 readathon. Now to figure out how to split my hours...

jessberk13 Every time they‘re hosting one I am always busy the entire weekend! In October was on my honeymoon and now this weekend I will be moving!! 2y
danibolahood @jessberk13 Awww boo :( I hope your move goes well! Maybe you will be able to sneak off and join in unofficially for a few hours 😉 2y

1. I'm going back to White is for Witching-I read some earlier then took a break to switch it up.
2. Started+finished 3 & read parts of 2
3. The Children's Home
4. Big interruptions! I'm just trying to read as much as possible during the other hours & listen to audio while I cook, etc but my mind is not as focused bc I'm not pausing it when something distracting happens!
5. I'm surprised how quickly time is passing!

1/4 of the way done, time for a check in! Out of 6 hours, I've read 4 hours and 28 minutes...that timer is brutal, even when I spend the whole time reading/getting books/writing down progress/making the odd post, I'm still only actually reading for about 40 minutes an hour! 😆
This is the list of books fully or partially read so far--those with a star were started before the readathon. #deweysreadathon #readathon

Natasha.C.Barnes But now I have to go to my grandfather's house for his birthday party, so my averages are about to PLUMMET. 2y
LauraBrook Isn‘t it amazing how much time is spent not-reading when you‘re actively trying to read non-stop? It gets me every time. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️😁 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @LauraBrook I knooooow! It's the worst. 2y

Andrew65 I always find that amazing and frustrating! @Natasha.C.Barnes @LauraBrook 2y
LauraBrook @Andrew65 @Natasha.C.Barnes I know! Two years ago I really worked at just reading full stop, not even breaking for meals, and it was one of my lowest totals ever. Ever! Now I just kind go with the flow. Ish. 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @LauraBrook Oh my god, you're kidding! How demoralizing! 😂 I'm trying to get to 12 hours of true reading in 24, which means I think I need to be trying to read for 18, leaving 6 hours for true no-reading hours (throwing a big dinner tonight 😳). It may be possible! I'll try not to get attached to the idea. 2y
Andrew65 @Natasha.C.Barnes Also like to get to 12 hours but don't think I'll make it. 2y

1/8th of the way done check-in! In the first 3 hours I've read for 2 hours and 19 minutes. I started and finished Ms. Marvel Vol. 5 (I know, I know, quite an accomplishment, I'm bragging 😂) and read 67 pages of White is for Witching. (First Oyeyemi FTW!) #readathon #deweys24hrreadathon #deweysreadathon

I couldn't have been happier with my #24in48readathon! Seriously, thank you so much @24in48 ! I finished two previously started books. Read a graphic novel. Started and nearly finished two others. I stayed out of the challenges because I wanted to read and knew I had so many distractions this weekend. Now I have a LOT of reviews to write. It was a blast!!

tpixie Great job!! 2y
Graciouswarriorprincess Fabulous job!! 2y

BarbaraTheBibliophage @JanuarieTimewalker13 6 hours is still great! I couldn't do more than that last time. Every time is different. 😎 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @ReadingEnvy We're together in this! I love writing them, though. 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @ApoptyGina69 Sounds like you had a great readathon. I quite enjoyed my books! 2y

Final stats for #24in48:
📚 9 hours and 22 minutes reading time
📚 2 books finished
📚 1 book started

Fell short of where I thought I would be in terms of reading time, but this was honestly the most reading I've done on any weekend in recent memory. So awesome to see so many Littens participating and smashing that 24 hour goal. Congrats to everyone! 💕

Soubhiville That's great! Any reading time is a win as far as I'm concerned! Congrats! 2y
