Here we are at the beginning of Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon! I hope everyone is awake and ready to go. The reading is about to begin, but first I thought I’d fill out the Opening Event 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 should be in Fargo, North Dakota, but my internet decided to quit on me last night so I’m at my father’s house in Oxbow, which is basically Fargo.
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Um, all of them, but really I’m excited to get in some more poetry time. I’ve always been a fan of poetry, but past readathons have been full of comics and prose. I hope to get through both poetry books for sure, but we’ll see what I feel like.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I’m crushing it with Weight Watchers (shameless praise) so my snacks are all healthy this time around. I have my eye mostly on the Quinoa Sticks and pomegranate since I don’t buy either of them often.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I recently got into hiking and cross stitch and am a little obsessed with both now. I’m also gearing up for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in November, so this readathon comes at the best possible time since I will probably not be reading in November.
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 think this is round five for me. The main difference is that I’m hosting a mini-challenge during Hour 21, which I’m excited for and you should be, too. (I’m biased, but seriously it’s going to be great.)
Let’s do this!
