Well, here we are. Dewey’s 24-hour readathon is over. Time went by soooooooo fast! I struggled a lot this time. I was constantly sleepy despite my multiple coffees. I read very slowly averaging only 27.1 pages per hours read; which is super duper low for me. My most accomplished hour was 66 pages in a Goosebumps book. I am a little disappointed, to be honest, but I am trying to not be too harsh on myself. I do want to celebrate this day!
I read! I am celebrating that! My time spent with books over the past two months has been minimal and this readathon kicked me back in gear. I also enjoyed my 4 hours of social media moderating in our Goodreads group, on Twitter, and on the Dewey’s blog. I had some really awesome conversations and got a ton of new book suggestions!
Here is my official wrap-up survey:
1. Which hour was most daunting for you? All of them this time.
2. Tell us ALLLLL the books you read! I finished The Bloody Chamber and Welcome to Dead House. I made it about 2/3 through Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I read about 20 pages of The Picture of Dorian Gray. And I listened to almost 4 hours of Neil Gaiman reading Fragile Things.
3. Which books would you recommend to other Read-a-thoners? Definitely The Bloody Chamber. What a lovely collection of dark and creepy adaptations of fairytales.
4. What’s a really rad thing we could do during the next Read-a-thon that would make you happy? Just continue to be your awesome selves!
5. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? Would you be interested in volunteering to help organize and prep? P(participate in April 2019) = 1. I’ve volunteered in the past (writing warm-up posts, hosting on the blog or on Twitter) and would love to get even more involved.
How did you guys fare? What did you read?
