Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon Progress

Hi everyone!!!!! I'm so excited to be starting the latest Dewey's 24 hour readathon!!!!! I'll update my progress here throughout the day.

As I'm starting late I thought I'd do the Hour 0 opening Meme. Here it goes!

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

New Zealand!

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

Hmmm, that's a hard one... It's a tie between Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman and Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

I haven't planned snacks... Oops...

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

I'm a slow reader, student librarian and English major who can never stop talking about books. ;)

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?

Chatting with other 24 hour readathoners and having hours in which to do nothing but read!

Hour 14: Meant to do the mid event at Hour 12 but was too busy reading... Oops! Here it is now. :)

Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now?

I've been switching between Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman and City of Masks by Mary Hoffman - both are great.

2. How many books have you read so far?

Just Saga Volume 4 which was incredible! 

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?

Probably some of Pablo Neruda's poetry or the Code Name Verity eaudiobook

4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?

I had to go out to the mall for supplies - the quickest trip I've ever made! Other than that it's been nice and quiet.

5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?

How I've lost track of the time! I forgot how relaxing reading for huge periods of time is.

How's everyone else going?


  1. How's the weather in New Zealand? Hope you are luckier than me, with this thundering storm outside that thwarted my plans of reading outside :)

    Don't forget to eat well and stay hydrated.

    Enjoy the readathon & happy reading from #TeamSherlock!

    1. Oops! My reply is below - still getting the hang of blogger!

  2. It's a perfect Autumn day over here: blue sky, good temperature for jeans and a cardi. Oh no! :( Hope it clears up soon!

    Thank you! You have a great readathon too! :)

  3. It sounds like you are all set to have a great read-a-thon! I hope that you are having lots of fun while getting thru a few good books. Keep up the great work and happy reading!!


  4. I've been loving Saga. I just finished the 4th volume the other day. Keep it UP!

  5. Sounds like you've been having a fantastic Readathon! Hope you got to Code Name Verity and that it was a good read. #TeamSherlock
