Lulz. I've been reading it to the youngest Zealand for the past month or two as a bedtime book and he fell asleep on the last page last night. Obviously we'll finish it tonight.

One day too late.

That's going to be quite a lot of talking.

He invited fans to join him on "one of the greatest fantasy adventures ever written" in a feat that is expected to take about 12 hours.

I don't know how many actors are used to that.

This probably included intermissions, or at least nutrition and bio-breaks.

He can hydrate on the fly to some degree.

A suitable UCD could mean a near non-stop reading.

I've got other stuff to do tomorrow, but I'd donate like $10 to get a copy of the files after the fact.

It’s a straight reading, not a dramatic reading. Which is not surprising given the length. 12 hours of in character reading would probably leave his voice shredded for days, at the least.

Although the reading is live, you can pick it up at the beginning or come in at any favourite chapter or point from the site.
