Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon (April 2019) Master Post

Happy #Readathon Day!

I’ll be updating my readathon progress here throughout the 24 hours. Make sure to scroll down to catch all the earlier posts:

 

That’s a wrap on another fun #readathon! I’m already looking forward to the next one!

Closing Survey

1. What hour was most daunting?

Honestly, I didn’t find any hour to be daunting. This was a very relaxed and enjoyable readathon for me; I just took my time and read when I was able to and stopped when I needed a break or needed to get something else done.

2. Tell us ALLLLL the books you read

I read two books: Normal People by Sally Rooney and Look at Me by Anita Brookner. I fell hard for Normal People and made sure to savor every word. Will be one of my favorite reads of the year for sure.

3. What was your favorite snack?

I actually didn’t end up snacking much at all (I never even made that popcorn), but I did have some yummy GF pizza for dinner.

4. What was your favorite facet of the day?

I enjoyed the three mini-challenges I participated in and seeing everyone’s posts on social media. However, the highlight was definitely the experience of reading Normal People.

A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin

The East Coast of the US

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

I’ve really been craving popcorn lately

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

I’m a(n): bibliophile, only child, introvert, Intersectional Feminist, Jack Russell Terrier owner, former English and Art History major, fashion enthusiast, and Anglophile.
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 will be my fourth time participating in the readathon and I’m hoping to strike a better balance between my reading time and the time I spend engaging here on the blog and on social media.

  1. Yay! I forgot to make the opening survey a master post, but I did the survey on my blog. Just looked at your TBR for the readathon, Helen Oyeyemi sounds interesting!
