Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon | Kick-Off Post

Saturday, April 26, 2014

***FYI - I will be updating on Twitter more frequently than here - probably once an hour.  My blog posts will be every 4 hours (ideally).  

I'm probably still sleeping.  I probably went back to sleep after I linked this to the Kick-Off Post.  Eventually I'll get up and start reading...

SO!  Readathon day!  I changed my stack because I went to the library on Thursday.  I tried to use mostly short books but I found out I have like 3 books under 300 pages and I'm not in the mood to read any of them. I wasn't able to get The Elite for free anywhere so I took it off my list. Here's the updated dealio:

These romancey books:

And for when I get tired of romance:

Kick-Off Qs

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
New Jersey, US

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Hmmmmm.  I think Fangirl.  The hype is overwhelming but I'm excited.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
Last night I made blondies.  So I'm definitely looking forward to that.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
Eep.  I have a regular job and in my spare time I buy books, makeup, and decor for my new (ish) apartment.  I like all kinds of books!  I tend to lean towards romance, but if I'm reading a non romance book, I like there to be almost NO romance in it.  I don't like adding romance for the sake of adding romance, that's silly. I also like fantasy books, and books set in other realities and things like that!

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?
It's my first readathon!!  Woohoo!!!  I'm most looking forward to interacting with other readers and cheerers.  I love seeing what other people are reading and I think it's AMAZING that there are 600 of us doing this!

I'm also cheering this year! I'm on #TeamAusten and I hope I can do the cheering thing justice. It's my first readathon for reading AND cheering so we'll see.

Happy reading everybody!


  1. Good luck for your first readathon! I don't know what blondies is/are, so I'm going to go and Google after this :) Enjoy Fangirl, I might give this one a go as well some day :)

    1. Oh! It's so early, I forgot to link the work to the description. Basically a vanilla brownie with white chocolate. And I don't even really like white chocolate that much, but I work for a chocolate company and our blondie mix is to die for, man.

    2. Ok, that sounds/looks delicious. I don't like chocolate that much myself, but in sweet stuffs like pastry products it's to die for :)

  2. Happy Reading! Can't wait to see your posts! I hope you love Fangirl...and you have some other awesome books in the lineup!
