Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-A-Thon is a bi-annual readathon, hosted at 24hourreadathon.com, where readers and bloggers get together and read for 24 hours, sharing their experience with others.
Well, I got up a bit late today and then took a while to actually feel awake, then I ate some breakfast and wrote this post, so I won’t actually be starting the Readathon until we’re well into hour 4. But that’s okay.
So here’s my pile:
Not pictured e-books:
I just realized that my entire pile is made up of books that have been out for a while, and I’m one of the last bloggers to finally get around to them! Well, better late than never!
My goals are to finish Under the Never Sky, read Uglies: Cutters, and at least get started on another book.
And here are my answers to the Introductory Questionnaire:
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Hmm, I don’t know! I’ve wanted to read all of them for a long time!
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
Once again I forgot to plan snacks. Why is it that every year I forget about this aspect of the readathon? Well, luckily I have some Milano cookies in my pantry…
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
Well, I’m a stay at home mom with a 3 1/2 year old son and I love to read (obvs) and write and one day I’d love to have a YA novel published. ALSO: I’m going to BEA in a month! Yay! If you’re a book blogger, and you’re going too, be sure to check back here soon–a gathering for all book bloggers is being planned as we speak! I’ll have more info here soon!
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
I hope to actually read a lot of books today. I’m a slow reader and so I keep my goals pretty small, but I hope to find a nice pace and get a lot read today!
Good luck to everyone who’s participating! I will respond to any comments left today, but I’m so behind already on that as it is, so it might take me a while, but I’ll get to it!
