Welcome (again) to Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon! The reading is about to begin, but first I thought I’d fill out the “Opening Meme” questions as posted on the main site. My answers are below, and then it’s time to start reading!
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
I am reading from Fargo, North Dakota, United States. It’s in the low-40s this morning, so I’m happy to be indoors.
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I am most looking forward to reading The Hours by Michael Cunningham. I’ve been meaning to read it for a long time, and it’s shown up on other readathon event lists without getting read. The time has come for The Hours. I plan on starting that a little later in the day. You can find my complete list here.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I’ve been eating healthy lately, but for today’s event I made puppy chow, so naturally I’m pretty excited about that. Also, COFFEE.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I work at a natural health company as a Copywriter/Proofreader. I’m also gearing up to start National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in a couple weeks. My life consists of working, reading, and writing for the most part, and I travel when I can afford it. My massive trip comes next summer when I go to England. I’ll be visiting other countries in Europe as well but haven’t made any final plans yet.
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?This is my second Dewey’s Readathon event. One thing I’d like to do different this time around is have more focus. It was hard for me to concentrate last time with other plans cropping up, but today I have no other plans. I am ready!
I begin my readathon at my mother’s house (cat-sitting/laundry day) with Popcorn the cat, a mug of coffee, and The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente
That’s all I have for now. You can find me on Twitter (@lostgenreader) for random updates and shenanigans. Feel free to link me to your first update post, or anything readathon related.
Happy reading to all participants!
