dewey

 

Goooooooooood morning Readathoners!!! And welcome to the fall edition of Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon!!!

As always, thank you Dewey, for starting this. We miss you!!!

I know you are anxious to get reading, so, firstly, a song to get you in the mood. And secondly, the Introductory Questionnaire. Fill it out on your blog, leave a link here, and you may win a prize!!

Now, for that video….

Fun, right? Now, the questions! Same as always….

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
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?

Link it up!

  1. Good morning. I cut it close — literally just woke up, threw up my post — and now I’m going to stagger about for some coffee, visit the others to say hi, then settle in to start reading. I have to admit, I feel a bit guilty just getting right down to reading my book — it seems crazy! (crazy awesome…!)

  2. My school district blog server is down so far this morning, so I’ll be reading, but not blogging:(
    I’m in WA State and I’m excited to finish up Sarah Dessen’s The Moon and More today. I’m looking forward to munching on my almonds. I’m a high school librarian and I guess my difference will be not having my blog for posting.

  3. ahh! I just saw this on Twitter (you guys are trending!!) and I was like I WANT TO JOIN! What’s FUNNY is that ALL WEEK, I kept telling myself “all day Saturday, I am going to just read all the books I keep saying I want to read and do nothing else.” and so last night I started reading and I haven’t stopped until now. (Well I did sleep…but that’s really important! It’s hard to process without sleeping! lol)

    So unknowingly, I’ve been doing the readathon! SOO cool! 🙂 So I’m so glad that I found this hashtag AND that I can join you guys in reading!!

    1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
    The wonderful state of Georgia! 🙂

    2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
    Dracula! I’ve never read it and it’s time that I do since I claim to love vampires so much! So once I finish reading Marie Lu’s Legend, I’m going to start on Dracula!

    3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
    Pop-tarts! Which I just had so I didn’t have to cook breakfast so I could keep reading. lol

    4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
    I LOVE being happy and I love life! 🙂 I’m a Professional Life Coach, photographer, youtuber, and I LOVE to read! I’m also OBSESSED with films-classics, current-I love it all! 🙂 I have regular movie-thons ALL the time! 🙂

    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 first one and I’m sooo excited about it! I am most looking forward to just the calm life of just reading in the quiet. 🙂 I also am looking forward to making new friends and finding new books to add to ever growing TBR list! 🙂

  4. Didn’t have ANY internet until after the dinner hour this evening! so I’ve had to go back to the beginning to add my intro link + + now that I’m online…
    So sorry to have missed all day, but happy to have got this evening reading and as lonnng as I can last in the wee hours…
    thanks for the great anticipation – always a read a thon I luv !
