Dewey’s Read-a-Thon!

Dewey’s Read-a-Thon!


How can you not love Dewey’s Read-a-Thon? It is easily one of my favorites of the year and the amount of awesomeness they pack into it is always amazing. Challenges, twitter conversations, prizes and wonderful hosts throughout the 24 hours makes for a crazy but super fun day of (kinda) reading. Unlike my last go round with Dewey’s I am somewhat less prepared, I blame getting off a 50hr work week having much to do with that. Anyhow, on to my books (sorry no pictures, no time!). This is by no means a full list, but it has a bunch I’d really like to get to and I have SOOO many to choose from. ^.^ Oh and my challenge posts will be under the list so look for that!

Introductory Questionnaire

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? – Cologne, MN, USA (My bedroom)

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? – Tossup b/n The Madness Underneath and The Sea of Monsters

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? – I always get Domino’s for readathons, can’t wait! (Supreme if you are curious)

4) Tell us a little something about yourself! – o_o I love books? Cliche… I used to paint LotR figures? Outdated… Umm…I’m on the back of Sarah-Jane Lehoux’s latest book!

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 did participate in the last one and I had a blast combining reading with challenges and a bunch of social interaction, I think I’ll likely do the same thing again though I might go a little heavier on reading and lighter on challenges. We shall see!

    Oh, I have The Madness Underneath on my stack as well. I hope you enjoy it. I’ve been looking forward to it since I finished The Name of the Star last year. Happy reading!

  4. Nice to meet you! I am spending my break time visiting “new to me” blogs and with a name like Frodo’s Blog of Awesomeness, I absolutely had to stop by. 🙂

    If you can believe it, there are no Domino’s in my area and I have never had it before. 😦 I know I am depraved. But I love a good supreme pizza anytime.

    Happy reading!!

    You are doing well! I really enjoyed the Percy Jackson series myself. Good luck with the rest of the read-a-thon.

  6. You used to paint LORT figurines?!?! That’s awesome! I really enjoy the Percy books too and have liked the first two in the new spin off series. Happy read-a-thon!
