Dewey's Readathon: Hour One Mini-Challenge

For Hour One, here is a brief questionnaire:

Where are you reading from today?

From a wide variety, to keep me from getting bored! Short stories of Ray Bradbury, novels of Penelope Lively, Barbara Pym, Jonathan Coe, and Wilkie Collins, essays by Teresa Kishkan, perhaps even my psychology textbook. Plus I have a few books in reserve, some well-loved favourites if I want to re-read instead. Also have two poetry books to refresh my palate!

3 facts about me …

Basic facts:

  • I'm a librarian, and love to read.
  • My ideal desert island experience would include chocolate, tea, and books. So pretty much today's plan. :)
  • I like to keep busy, so I have my own business alongside my day job, and also write.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?


Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)?

No goals except to finish at least 3 books. And enjoy reading as long as possible.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?

I've never had the chance to do it before. I'll have to take others' advice!


  1. My advice: pace yourself and remember to take breaks when you need them. Some people like to start with shorter novels. Your list of books looks really good. Enjoy yourself and good luck!

  2. How funny, I have 22 books in my TBR pile too! Good luck!


Thanks for stopping by ~ I always enjoy hearing your comments so please feel free to leave some!
