Dewey’s 24-Hour #Readathon – Read ALL the Books!

Dewey's Readathon_Pocketwatch_Bellezza

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?
