wilderthan: ((Dr Horrible) Status quo)
[personal profile] wilderthan
I managed to stay up all twenty-four hours of the read-a-thon, and spent most of it reading, apart from when I was providing food or answering mini-challenges. I'm now really tired, but it was a lot of fun. Here's what I managed to read. The links go to the goodreads review pages.

1) Shakespeare's Richard III. I needed to read this for a class on Monday. It took me something like three hours and felt like it'd never be over, but I managed it.

2) Nennius' The History of the Britons. A short text, but not precisely easy reading. Contains one of the earliest references to King Arthur.

3) The alliterative Morte Arthure. An Arthurian text I've barely heard of: might be useful for my course.

4) The stanzaic Le Morte Arthur. Need I say more?

5) Yevgeny Zamyatin's We. One of the earliest dystopias, and massively influential.

6) Alison Goodman's Singing the Dogstar Blues. I needed a change of pace at the time, and this provided it wonderfully.

7) The Mabinogion. It's obvious why I read this, right? Arthurian references, and it's Welsh!

8) Mari Strachan's The Earth Hums in B Flat. Only managed two thirds of this, but finished up the last third this afternoon. Mari Strachan's also Welsh.

I think in future I'll do this again, and maybe monthly twelve hour readathons, to try and attack the to read as comprehensively as I did today.

Oh, god, guys, but I'm exhausted.
