Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon Starting Post & Updates

April 21, 2012 Whitney read-a-thon 15 Comments

Dewey’s Read-A-Thon Starts today and in a few minutes I’ll be hunkered down to read.  Mt tea is steeping, the fire is turned on due to the chilly morning with my ass planted in a chair and of course a book at hand.  I wrote of my pre-read-a-thon plans and here are my current ones:

Do not burn out!  If my eyes get tiered, take a break.  If I’m board with a book switch it up.  As much as I love seeing everyones progress and participating in mini-challenges they are distracting.  I always get caught up in the glow of the screen and get back to read much longer then I had intended to.  So I will be posting updates/comments/mini-challenges when ever I need a break and will try to be limiting myself on computer rime.
My List:

  1. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins 
  2. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
  3. The Woman In White by Wilkie Collins
  4. The Bad Seed by William March
  5. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
  6. Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

Start of event questionnaire

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? 
The Cornbelt AKA TheMidwest

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

The last two books in The Hunger Games

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

Tea which is really a drink

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

When I was ten I wanted to be a waitress at Ed Debevic’s

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?

Getting some much needed reading done duh!

  1. That seems like a fine job aspiration for a ten-year-old. I wanted to breed dachshunds. Like..full-time.

    MIDWEST REPRE-SENT. And wait, where in the Midwest? I'm in Illinois.

    I thoroughly approve of your list. The only reading I'm getting done today is on a train to Milwaukee (and it's obvs WiW, because SO far behind for Monday).

    HAVE FUN!!!

    • I thought so, being rude to so many people in one day sounded so appealing. Although, breeding dachshunds sounds very respectable too.

      I am sooo far behind on WiW too, I'll be playing catch-up today.

      On a side note, Illinois represent!
