It’s that time of year where I set aside real life for 24 hours and use Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon as an excuse to read all weekend! Not that that’s how I spend most of my weekends anyway… 😛
But yes, from 1pm (UK time) on Saturday 28 April to 1pm on Sunday 29 April, I plan to do nothing but read. I’ve never actually managed the full 24 hours before (I like sleep too much!) but I usually manage around 18 hours – we’ll see how well I get on this year!
To the opening survey:
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I usually try to put a theme together for Readathon – one that lets me read a variety of novels to keep it interesting. I had a few options this year, but I’ve decided to keep it relatively simple, and read books by female authors. My current plan – and it usually changes once Readathon gets underway – is to read the following (in no particular order):
Of these, I’m particularly looking forward to Into the Water which I’ve had for almost a year now!
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
Food planning for Readathon is one of the joys of the weekend, and I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into some salted caramel cookies and some ice cream later on!
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I’m Jo, and I’ve been blogging for almost three years now. I’ve always been a reader, and I love dystopian and post-apocalyptic fiction, although I do try to read a broad range of novels.
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?
This is my fourth 😮 Readathon, and I think that this year I want to try to take strategic naps throughout the day, rather than sleeping for 4 to 5 hours when it gets late. I usually get too carried away to stick to this, however, and end up crashing when it gets to midnight.
