Dewey’s 24-hr Readathon – Opening Post

22 Oct


Are you ready to rumble? Or maybe, curling up with a good book(s) and read for a solid 24 hours (or at least attempt to read for 24 hours!)

I first found out about Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon a couple of years ago, but unfortunately, it never seems to work with my schedule (although I try to be a cheerleader when possible) – so I’m excited to take a stab at actually reading this time 🙂 (ok, well, maybe I lied – I think I tried it in either 2013 or 2014 but only made it to about 16 hours before I passed out…).

All this week, I’ve been reading the various warm-up posts on the websites, where veteran read-a-thon’ers (is that an actual word) provide advice on how to tackle this 24 hour period – with advice on how to pick what books to read? what to do if real world gets in the way? or if you just need a break? so i’m curious to see which of these various tactics (if any), I opt to use.

But to kick it of, I figure I’m going to try and finish up one (or more) of the many books that I have in progress…

Destiny – Alex Archer – mystery/adventure/urban fantasy
The Sweetness of Honey – Alison Kent – romance/women’s lit
Malicious Intent – Kathryn Fox – mystery/crime
Why You Say That? – Webb Garrison – non-fiction/etomology
A House Without Windows – Nadia Hashimi – literary fiction/afghanistan/legal fiction

While I have my stack of books, I know that I’m going to have to venture out of the house occasionally…but that’s ok, because I have my trusty Apple iTouch with audiobooks on it.

So in audio, I’m working on Lothaire which is the 12th book in Kresley Cole’s Immortal’s after Dark series and narrated by the fabulous Robert Petkoff (and since I have like 8 hours to go, I likely won’t finish it up during the read-a-thon…).

So let’s get this show on the road!!
