Dewey’s 24-Hour #Readathon – Final Update

Dewey's Readathon_Pocketwatch_Bellezza

I’ve survived another Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon!

  • Total Pages Read: 809
  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? 3 am when I suddenly didn’t want to read anymore.  That has never happened before.  I usually just start feeling a bit punchy, but this time I got to the end of a chapter and decided I didn’t want to continue.  I switched to an audiobook, and that fixed it, but for a second there I thought something was wrong with me!
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay
  3. Do you have any suggestions on how to improve the Readathon next year?  Nope, I only have ideas for improving it for myself.  Next time, I want to be more social, and I’ll start with the book I’m most looking forward to instead of anything else.
  4. What do you think worked well in this year’s Readathon? The 10 Years in 10 Books challenge was the most fun.
  5. How many books did you read? 3, but I also read most of Skin Trade by Laurell K. Hamilton
  6. What were the names of the books you read? Ghostland: An American History in Haunted Places by Colin Dickey, The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, and Head Full of Ghosts.
  7. Which book did you enjoy most?  Head Full of Ghosts
  8. Which did you enjoy least? Ghostland
  9. How likely are you to participate in the Readathon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?  I will definitely be participating again, and I might sign up to be a Goodreads discussion moderator.

I’m going to bed now…
