  1. Reading at my home in Zagreb, Croatia 🙂
    This is my first read-a-thon and I’ve really looked forward to it. Thanks everyone for organizing such an awesome event 🙂

  2. I’m reading from NC! For some reason I didn’t know you lived in Florida and thought you were further west. Made that up totally apparently haha!

    I love that video. Can you imagine the work they put in to make all of those synchronized lines of falling books? And how many times they had a book angled wrong and they had to restack dozens of books in all those rows and re-shoot it? Holy guacamole.

  3. Well I guess the only positive is that your book looks super well-loved. Did you make a second cup?

  4. Reading from the Netherlands, it’s going great! Loving my first book (Fangirl) so far. In the book the main character is staying in her room, reading, while everyone else is partying. Which is exactly what I’m doing right now! 😀 (it’s a national holiday today, Kingsday) Readathons always come first!

  5. Becca, I was moving around for a while with my husband, so it did get confusing. We were in Denver, Boston, and then DC for a year.

    But we’re back in Florida and that’s home!

    And OMG I know. . . that video is the best! I love when the book falls into the guy’s hands. It’s just great!

  6. Oh good! Glad you’re enjoying the Read-a-thon and the challenges! That one was fun. I tried it out for a little.

  7. OMG Florida, I’m so jealous! <3 I’m reading from Denmark, but I rather read in Florida I have to admit. It such a wonderful place, warm, sunny, nice … And jeez I miss the donuts and Doritos Tacos!

  8. That dominoes is amazing, I’m practically drooling over all the books. I’m not actually reading this year (stupid finals) but I am taking the time to cheer, I’m from Trinidad and Tobago. I wonder if there are fellow Trinis taking part is this readathon.

  9. I’ve never had one of the Doritos tacos, but I did eat some Doritos this morning as a snack! 😀

  10. I’m not sure! You’re the first I’ve heard from Trinidad and Tobago, but maybe there are some others out there! Good luck on your finals!

  11. Isn’t the video amazing? I’d love to say I made it. . . but nope, just found it on YouTube 😀

  12. The puzzles was kind of cool! Definitely unique. I’ve never seen anything like that before online.

  13. Yes, exactly. It’s pretty easy. It’s just a great way to keep track of what books were read, which genres, and how many pages! 😀

  14. Hello!

    Im just leaving a comment here because I won a prize from this hour, and I filled out the form but I have not been contacted yet? I was wondering if I should fill it out again.

    Thanks guys!
