This past Saturday/Sunday I participated in Dewey’s 24-hour read-a-thon. It was great fun and fantastic! I really can’t wait to do it again. I should have checked the read-a-thon blog beforehand, so I could have done more to participate, but Looking through it today, I found a short questionaire that I could fill out here for my wrap-up post.
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
I read from Atlanta, Georgia USA. And it was a beautiful day.
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I was most looking forward to “Dorothy must die” by Danielle Paige. And It did not disappoint.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I had carrots and celery, but I wish I would have gotten apple slices and cucumbers to snack on as well.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I enjoy staying up late with a cup of tea, listining to Frank Sinatra, or Jazz, and reading. I’m also a wee bit obsessed with the Lego video games. I think I own almost all of them.
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?
What I most looked forward to for the read-a-thon was reading other’s blogs and feeling a great connection to other readers all over the world.
In terms of my Dewey’s reads, I originally had a total of seven books I was going to try to read, but I only got through 4 and a half. Not bad, but my Lego game obsession got to me and I ended up playing for longer than I intended to.
I read Dorothy must Die by Danielle Paige, Doctor Who: The Edge of Destruction by Nigel Robinson, The wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, Run to you part One: First sight by Clara Kensie, and half of Run to You part two: Second Glance by Carla Kensie. So I read a grand total of 617 pages.
I will put my reviews up of all the books I’ve read and hopefully get to participate in Dewey’s again next time. And I wanted to say thank you to the cheerleaders and their motivation to keep reading.
