Dewey's 24 Hour #Readathon

Addendum: Opening survey at end of post


It's here again! I never do well, but I always participate because...well, you all know why. It's just what we do. This is the last two days of my Spring into Horror Readathon so I will be focusing on horror this time around. It is the genre that keeps me the most alert. I love the chills and thrills. 😨
I am going to try to participate longer than I have previously, but I will be going out to lunch and to a movie with Mom today (we're seeing The Circle). That's why I'm starting at the official start time...7:00am my time. I had planned to go to bed earlier last night, but...oh well.

Okay, so what I'm reading...not much of a stack, but I still have a lot of The Historian to read to finish it by Sunday night, but I probably won't focus on just it during this readathon. I'm a pretty slow reader anyway so I'm being pretty optimistic with these.


The Historian, Elizabeth Kostova
Graveminder, Melissa Marr
Exorcist Falls, Jonathan Janz
We Are Always Watching, Hunter Shea

I really went all out on the snacks this time. I wanted to cover all of the bases. I forgot to put my hot and spicy peanuts in the picture. As far as drinks go, I'll have coffee in the morning and then drink Crystal Light most of the time (lemonade). I may have a glass of wine too.


 Well, I wish everyone luck. I created the button up top. Feel free to use it/share it. Also, if you're looking for some fun, check out my Cat Thursday post, The Stages of a 24 Hour Readathon.

Not sure if I'll post updates here, on Twitter (@truebookaddict), or on Facebook in the Seasons of Reading group. I'll just make that up as I go along. 😁

Happy Reading!

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Nashville, Tennessee, USA
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? 
All 😉
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? 
Hershey's with Almonds...my favorite!
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! 
I've been book blogging for...it will be eight years in August. I'm mom to two teen boys and two cat daughters. I work from home. I write. I'm very active in the book blogging community. I host six readathons yearly via my blog Seasons of Reading. I host a plethora of reading challenges via my site, Gather Together and Read, and I run two Goodreads book clubs, TuesBookTalk and Lit Collective.
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? 
I want to read more this time! So, I will try to be less distracted and try to read faster.

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

  4. I'm sitting here full of envy for your snacks. I'm taking care of my granddaughter and trying to read while she naps. Her parents did not prepare at all for me snackwise.

  5. I tried to read The Historian during a Readathon once. It didn't go too well. But then I have no patience.
