Dewey’s Readathon Hour 1

Opening survey!

What fine part of the world are you reading from today? — the South of Germany, close to Stuttgart.

Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? — I started with Unfortunate Stars, my current Netgalley. I am also really looking forward to The Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice (re-read).

Which snack are you most looking forward to? — I am not much of a snack person. I just had a sandwich with a garlic/herb spread and some peppers.

Tell us a little something about yourself! — no time, must read!

If you participated in the last readathon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? — more reading, less social media! Bye-bye! Oh, yes, I am also timing my social media time, apart from the various forms of reading…

Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon

What better way to get started with our 2022 Spring Readathon than with a reading sprint? If you have never done a reading sprint before, it is super easy- pick up your book (or turn on your audiobook), tune out all distractions, and just read/listen for the duration of the sprint. Can’t make it a whole hour? Try to hold your focus for as long as you can. Reading sprints are great exercise for your brain, and a great way to make progress reading a book you’ve had languishing unfinished for a while. Traditionally we do an hour long reading sprint every 4 hours, plus our initial one in hour 1, so if you missed this sprint, try again during hours 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, and 24.

So, on your marks …. Get set …. Read!

  1. “Tell us a little something about yourself! — no time, must read!” — hahahahahaha

    Man that sandwich sounds good!

    Hope your reading is going well. I’m taking a quick break to scrounge up something for dinner.

    1. My reading is going so-so. I thought I would be faster. I finished one short comic and I am about a third into my ebook. I made good progress in my audiobook as well. It‘s almost 1 a.m. here, I am started to get tired and a little blurry-eyed. Let‘s see how much longer I can keep up. Maybe I‘ll sleep for a few hours after the next sprint.

      How is your readathon going? Bon appetit!
