24 in 48 Day 1 Wrap up

Standard

It has been a pretty intense day. Here’s my count as of the now:


Respectable I think. I’m pretty sure at this point I’m not going to hit the full 24 hours, but I should beat the 14 that I made it to last time.

After Dreadnought, I’ve also finished these two books today:


This is such a lovely story, I definitely had some tears at the end. This is also a great book for anyone who isn’t sure why the Aboriginal people are still pissed. The Aboriginal people weren’t considered to be ‘people’ (ie, they had no rights at all and weren’t even included in the census) until the Referendum of 1967. Set in the 1940s, this book intelligently and accessibly talks about a couple of pieces of legislation (including the White Australia Act) that were on foot at that time and their impact on the people. I highly recommend this one.

I’ve just finished this one and I’m very much still in WTF just happened?? mode. I feel like my heart has been ripped out of my chest and stomped on multiple times.

I think I will try to press on a bit further tonight, but I need to find something a bit lighter!

How are you travelling?

Don’t forget tomorrow is also the start of the Diverseathon! It’s a great opportunity to get a couple of extra books squeezed in!
