During my morning blog browse, I happened to see over at April's that this is a Readathon Day!  And so I quickly jumped on board...I'm not very very hopeful about being able to read for 24 hours, but I will try to get at least ten books read!

Off I go...

Questions via 24hourreadathon.com

Dewey Readathon
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Southern New England-- a crisp fall day, with a hint of the first frost still on the grass

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I'm really looking forward to not having a stack at all...but one book I'm most certainly going to read is The Spindlers, by Lauren Oliver.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
The cranberry apricot bread I'm going to make

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I am woefully unprepared for winter, both in fact (there are still windows awaiting reglazing in the barn) and in mind--this cold dark morning stuff rots.

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?
I'm not going to fret about having to do other things in between reading--I'll give the books my best shot, and get at least 14 hours of reading in, but won't feel bad about not reading every book in my pile!


  1. My joining was a last minute thing, too. Last year I passed it up, telling myself I'd join in this year, and I only learned about it this morning when I was reading blog posts, so...here I am. I too have no plan, other than to read the many CYBILS contenders that I've managed to scrounge. (I wanted to trying my hand with the judging rounds this year, but I was too late. Maybe next year. Nevertheless, I'm having fun reading the nominations.)

    1. Oh yes, do throw your name in next year! It's lots of fun!

      good luck with the reading!

  2. Wow, you have quite a challenge there! You want to get at least 10 books read. I am expecting to stay awake for the whole 24 hours but my goal is 3 books. Way to go :-)
    Happy reading.

    1. Perhaps I was a tad too ambitious...only two and a half read so far!

  3. This is my first read-a-thon. I'm beginning to think that not worrying about it is best too! Of course, I already knew that I would have other things to do that I wouldn't be able to read through. Gook luck with your reading!

  4. I hope you had fun doing the read-a-thon!
