Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon Starting Questions

And GO!

Trust me, I can think of very few 4:45 wake-ups that would be this easy to get up for, but I'm always excited for read-a-thon.  So excited it's hard to get to sleep, which is inconvenient, of course.

Questions to start off the first hour:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Here I am in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon on the west coast of the United States.

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I've been wanting to read A Gentleman in Moscow since it came out over a year ago, so probably that one.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
Fleur de Sal caramels from Trader Joe's.  TJ's should really sponsor my read-a-thon.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I teach reading at a middle school, and one of my students said, "So it's really a challenge to see if your family can go 24 hours with no mom."  You got it, kid!

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 fourth time participating--woo-hoo!--and I asked friends and readers to vote on my stack.  So we'll see how well I do sticking to it.

Okay, enough blogging--I'm going to go read!


  1. 1. S. Ohio; 2) Most looking forward to finish some I've take a bit long with 3) Snack WAS a sample of Reese cereal (it's great-fyi); 4) College librarian & writer. I've loved reading since at least Middle School. 5) First Readathon & didn't even,do,it right--didn't know about the questions!

  2. OMG! #4 was fantastic! I nearly nosed my drink. I hope you have a great 24 hours, and eat some of those yummy caramels for me.

  3. I hope you got a lot of reading done! I didn’t even finish one book, but I read 330 pages of a book, which is A LOT for me to read in one day. I’m basically the slowest reader ever.
