#Readathon October 2014: Opening meme

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Oslo, Norway. Where the weather is cold, grey and rainy, so it feels extra satisfying to curl up and indulge with books.

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I haven't actually entirely decided what I'm reading yet, despite my love of making lists and planning things.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
Because they've served me well in previous Read-a-thons, I've made my favourite ham, scallion and cheese muffins. Otherwise I'm going to have to be careful with the snacks. Am trying to lose weight.

4) Tell us a little bit about yourself!
I'm 35, I'm a teacher. I probably actually have way too much work I should be doing to take a whole 24 hours to spend reading, but I don't care. I love Read-a-thon and need some quality reading time to recharge my batteries.

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what's one thing you'll do different today?
I'm going to allow myself some breaks, and may actually go to bed a bit earlier, and get up early, instead of reading for as long as I possibly can and then, as a result, sleeping through the final hours of the read-a-thon.


  1. I am doing the same thing you are...planning to sleep a bit earlier in the day so that I can make the last few hours. I'm just too old to stay up 24 hours in a row! :-) Happy reading!

  2. I started earlier because of the time difference though I'll likely end up sleeping. It is difficult to do the whole 24! Hope you have a good readathon :)

    1. Oh, I've never once managed the full 24 hours. My record is 18 in total - I usually have to go to sleep between hour 17 and 18, and can usually manage to get up for the last few hours again.

  3. Good luck with your reading! One of my favorite things about readathon is knowing that there are people from all over the world reading together!

  4. Is the sweet love lost?
    Does every freedom have a cost?
    Is the dragon freed?
    To find out you have to read read read.

    Thank you so much for being a part of Dewey - It’s always nice to see so many readers at once and see all the different books you’re reading! :)

  5. Rainy days are perfect for curling up with a good book :) It was pretty cloudy and cold here as well so it was nice to stay inside and read instead.

    Good luck with the readathon - I hope you enjoy your books!
