Dewey's 24 Hour #Readathon - Reading plans and Happy 10 Years!

Another year, another 24 hour readathon! Perfect that my FrightFall Readathon is going on at the same time...all month long. I find that scary reads are always a good bet for a 24 hour readathon because they're more apt to keep one awake.

First of all, a very happy ten year birthday to Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon!

I'm not planning a major snack foray this time, as I'm on a...well, I'm not going to say diet, I don't like that word...but many know that I'm on a new me, healthy journey so there will be no candy or sweets this time. Coffee, of course. Maybe some popcorn, peanut butter, yogurt.

As for the reading, I'm going to be choosing from the books in this graphic.

Some are read-alongs so I won't be reading entire books. However, I really like reading physical books during the 24 hour readathons so I'm hoping to read this one in its entirety...

I'm not sure if I'll do updates here, or on my Facebook page or Twitter (@truebookaddict). My Facebook is linked to my Twitter account so I may do them on there. I listed all three on Dewey's sign-up form.

And now for the opening meme!

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?
Probably the one in the last image...Bone White by Ronald Malfi
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
See my mention of snacks above. Probably coffee. lol
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I'm a mom of two teen boys. I work from home as a virtual assistant and other jobs. I'm working on my first novel (waffling on whether to join NaNoWriMo next month). I love cats, Christmas, history. I have a massive home library numbering over 3000 books.
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 always say I'm going to read more, and try to stay up all night...but somehow...anyway, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again."

Happy reading!

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. I've been participating in FrightFall all month, but just posted about it yesterday. Life has been so busy!! Which makes me even more thankful for today where I can just slow down and read!!

    Hope you have a great day! I will be online, so hope to touch base throughout the day when I take a break every now and then.

  2. It’s been a difficult month for me between my niece attempting suicide and my health issues. I haven’t read as much or even what I had planned. I wasn’t going to participate this year but Rob put a box of books together and has planned what he calls surprise food and snacks. I couldn’t tell him I had changed my mind about participation. So far I made it through a book and a half. I’m planning to just do what I can and post to Instagram and Facebook. I’m looking forward to seeing what you thought of your books. I see some interesting ones in there! Happy reading!

  3. Hope you had fun yesterday! I was able to participate a bit during the day but went to a concert last night. The RAT was over by the time I got home!
