1) Oslo, norway. 2) Honestly? All of them seem fantastic.3) I havent planned snacks, I do have oreos so I probably will eat that. 4) I` m studuying library and information science 5) first readathon, not sure the sosial aspect. Yes I havent oficially participated before but I have spent many days in my life just reading. So the new thing for me will be the sosial aspect

HIGHLY HIGHLY recomend it.

Started Dear Luke, We Need to Talk, Darth And Other Pop Culture Correspondences by John Moe
and Agatha Christie A Biography by Janet Morgan
and Shadowshaper (Shadowshaper, #1) by Daniel José Older and read each for a bit before I switched.
I finished Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1) by Cassandra Clare early today before I needed some sleep.
not sure which book to continue now. probably Dear Luke, We Need to Talk, Darth And Other Pop Culture Correspondences by John Moe

1. What are you reading right now?

just finished a book continuing with the agatha christie bio

2. How many books have you read so far?

3

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

the fandom by anna day

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

I slept for 4-5 hours. other than that not big ones.
5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
that there are hourly updates I personally think that is too many. I read in long chunks usually. I think beginning ,middle and end would be enough.

That's my mom's favorite series. She read them when I was in high school, and my dad and I could always tell when she was reading them because we could hear her cackling and sobbing laughing from across the house 😂😂😂

Kate (kathrynlouwca) I love Pukka tea. Well, I have only tried "love" but I really enjoy that one. They're hard to find where I live.


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

I finished my first book. Bizzy so unsure how much more reading I will do. Amber huh. Your mom likes them too.. well they are adult books but still not sure I like having a mom book taste


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

I ended up only reading one book and starting another. Still it was nice doing it. Both were rereads.

Thanks Elsi. You too. :D


message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

Finished Ninth key, starting the non fiction book now, good choice I think cause it has pictures and short text so my tired mind can easily read it.

Dewey's 24 hour Readathon Mid-(ish)-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now?
33 amazing norwegians. ( 33 utrolige nordmenn) a norwegian nonfiction book about what the title says. Interesting read.

2. How many books have you read so far?
Only one, was bizzy yesterday, and tired so slept 7 hours. Plan to read more or less non stop till the ending though.

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
Except the one I am reading, I am curios about the count of monte cristo which I want to at least start.

4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Ish I have had, times when I have read slightly less. Like yesterday when I focused more on a sitcom I was watching, and I had one eye on a sining competicion. But other than that not many. Dont mind those. You need breaks even from reading.

5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
Idk..Nothing comes to mind. I have done it twice now so I`m familiar with it.

Give out free tardises? Honestly, it works fine as it is in my opinon.

5. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? Would you be interested in volunteering to help organize and prep?
Well highly as this is my second one. I really enjoy it, even though I sleep for a long time during it, talking to you guys about books is really fun.

I will be doing the readathon this weekend.
I do have plans on saturday, it start saturday afternoon for me, wount be able to read before satruday evening. And have plans on sunday, still want to read a bit and join the fun as much as I can.
Might do fruit snacks this time.
Not sure about my tbr yet thinking I will post it on friday, have time tomorrow and friday to read as well so wount know for sure which books I will read sat before friday. A bit silly to post a tbr today and then edit it daily, because I finished half the books.

Hey Oda Renate, great to hear that you are going to participate in another Dewey's Readathon. Don't worry about joining late on Saturday, lots of us have to customize our reading time due to other commitments. Happy reading!

It's all good! Read when you can and when you want! Reading should never be a chore.

I finished one comic book so yeay. Unsure if I will read more.


message 42: by [deleted user] (new)

Summary of this readathon:
I was sick and bizzy so I only finished two comic books. But hey they were fun, and having fun is all that matters.
I did have fun seeing what everybody else was reading.

I was better by last night, and better today, though still not 100 %. its been a long week so could be something like that. You know stress.

I will be participating this weekend, but will be visiting my sister. Its suppose to be sunny so could read outside, I got some books from the library. Still not sure which ones I will be reading, so might be more of a " I read this" than an exact tbr first.
Also will probably update about the weekend on monday because of me being on the visit.


message 48: by Elyse (new)

Elyse (winesaboutbooks) | 1868 comments Welcome back! Hope you have fun with your sister! But still manage to sneak in some reading. ;)
