I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve joined Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon but I am very excited to be joining this year because it is the first time in two years where I am not in school. I have always been so busy the last few readathons because I was working 40-60 hours a week and doing an accelerated Masters degree program. My Masters is done and I only work one job now, so I finally have time to really read. While I’m not sure exactly what I’ll end up reading but these books are the ones I’m most interested in…
I have already started Duke and I so I would like to finish that today. Then I will just see where my reading mood takes me. I’m excited for all of these but I may just choose something random from my shelves. We shall see.
I usually post updates about every 4 hours but I’m just going rogue this year. I’ll post here whenever I have some progress in my books and if I want to update my feelings. Less structured this time because I want to focus on enjoying my books.
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
I live in Arizona
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I really want to see how Duke and I ends and then I would love to get into Everblaze.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I’m not big on snacks, I will mostly just do meals.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
Since I was so busy over the last few years I sort of thought I had fallen out of love with reading but over the last few months I feel I have found my reading grove again.
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 I will try for more walks this readathon. Arizona is finally cooling down a little and it might be nice to go explore my new neighborhood more.
5:00 am to 9:45 am:
page 194-371 Duke and I (Finished)
I really enjoyed the Duke and I, now I need to pick what to read next!
9:45 am to 6:40 pm:
page 1-56 The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue
page 1-90 The Devil and the Dark Water
This readathon is not going as expected. I have been really tired all day but doing any reading is still a win for me. I would like to read a bit more before I go to sleep tonight.
