Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon has officially started! I prepped my tea kettle last night, so all I had to do when I got up at 6:30 am was turn it on, make my breakfast (yogurt and cranberry granola), and get my browser ready to go with all my readathon related sites. I’ve been running off a readathon excitement high most of the week, especially when I found out that the four hours of mandatory overtime was canceled!!!
- What fine part of the world are you reading from today? I’m in Austin, TX.
- Which book in your stack are you looking forward to the most? The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear by Walter Moers.
- Which snack are you looking forward to the most? Icecream!
- Tell us a little something about yourself! Here are 20 somethings about myself. Also, I built a Hobbit hole in Minecraft this week instead of reading.
- If you participated in the last readathon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? I’m going to try listening to audiobooks while I socialize so I can get as close to reading for 24 hours as possible. I’m also raising money for charity, which I haven’t been able to do for the past few readathons.
Here’s my TBR:
- How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran
- Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
- Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
- When Books Went to War by Molly Guptill Manning
- Heart’s Blood by Juliet Marillier
- Cannonbridge by Jonathon Barnes
- Succubus Heat by Richelle Mead
- The Stranger’s Magic by Max Frei
- The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear by Walter Moers
- Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris
- Wild by Cheryl Strayed
My first update will be at 3 pm. I’ll be tracking how many pages I read and any books I finish, as well as the amount of money I’ve raised for RIF and the APL. I’ll also include mini-challenges I’ve accepted, snacks I’ve nommed, and any musical earworms that have gotten into my head.
Whether you’re participating in the readathon or not, what book(s) are you currently reading?
