My Readathon Stack

readathon badgeYou guys know me by now – I love the Dewey 24 Hour Readathon! It’s far and away my favorite blogging event. My goal is always to read and finish 10 books (including a classic and a nonfic) – which sounds impressive until you check out my list and see that some of my options include a 15 minute audio short story and several novellas, including a couple of 30-pagers.

Here are the options I’m planning to pick from:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

Where the wind comes sweeping down the plain…

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

I’ve been saving several of these for the readathon, so I’m excited about finally reading quite a few of them!

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

Coffee. Coffeecoffeecoffee.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

My loud neighbors are giving me long-term rage issues. BE QUIET AND LET ME READ, OKAY?

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?

Well, I’m always tweaking my readathon system – I always include lots of novellas, and at least one classic and one nonfiction read. This time around, I’m also going to fit in a book of short stories.
