Dewey's Readathon_Pocketwatch_Bellezza

I’ve survived another Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon!

  • Total Pages Read: 279 and the remaining 83% of Good Omens.
  • Mini-Challenges Completed: #Shelfie
  • Snacks Consumed: Mountain Dew, Challah bread, and cheese.
  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? Around 3am, when I got cranky.
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? The Dream Lover by Elizabeth Berg.  The chapters are all short, the writing is beautiful, and George Sand was an amazing and interesting ahead of her times character.
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Nope, because it keeps getting better and better.
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? The cheerleaders did an awesome job.  I loved that they were put into teams.
  5. How many books did you read? 3 and most of a 4th
  6. What were the names of the books you read? The House of Spirits by Isabel Allende, The Essential Feminist ReaderGood Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, and The Dream Lover by Elizabeth Berg.
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? ooh, that’s tough.  I have to say both The Essential Feminist Reader and The Dream Lover for very different reasons.
  8. Which did you enjoy least? The House of Spirits
  9. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I’ll definitely be participating in October, and I might sign up to be a cheerleader.

I’m going to bed now…

  1. Awesome, awesome job! *\o/*

    I’m sorry to hear your CC spin isn’t treating you so well, though! Also that you got cranky at 3, but that’s to be expected. 😉

    October can’t get here soon enough!
