Dewey's Read-a-thon Hours 1-8

 1)Where are you reading from today?
        Wynnewood, PA, United States

 2)Three random facts about me…
 a) I've met my pages read goal for the year which was 10,000 pages.  That's thanks to my Kindle for speeding up my average reading speed!  Yay!
 b) I joined Eharmony again to try to meet someone.  I'm hopeful it'll work this time.  I only joined for three months!
c) I love to cook and bake on occasion and may be making thanksgiving dinner this year.  I can't wait!

3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
 I have 22 books on my TBR pile.  I've finished one so far!  Ten are kindle books and the rest traditional books.

4)Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)?
 I'd like to finish a few books by the end of the readathon although I'm not planning on doing the whole 24 hours.  I didn't get up today until 10:30am since it's been a rough work week.  My goal is to do a few blogs and post on goodreads, Facebook, twitter, etc.

5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
 Take plenty of breaks and have some good snacks handy.  I took a lunch break to go to McDonalds and picked up some cookies and things at CVS.  I didn't prepare as much for this one which is usually good to do those preparations before the readathon starts!

So in the first few hours of the readathon I finished one book, Grimm's Fairy Stories.  It was very interesting to see how different the stories are from the ones I remember.  Next up I'm planning on reading a regular book since I read this one on my kindle.  I'm excited to get a few books finished and to update my pages read stats for bookcrossing later!  I hope everyone is having fun and happy reading to all!


  1. Thanks! I'm on to my next read after a big blogging distraction!
