It’s hour 12 of Dewey’s, and I’m really surprised at how well I’m doing so far. I was able to join in on the fun earlier than anticipated, and have spent almost the entire day reading!
1. What are you reading right now?
I’m sort of in between books right now! I just finished Illuminae and it was awesome, and I’m sort of bewildered as far as where to go from here. I still have a bunch of books in my stack, and I’m thinking I’ll probably go for a graphic novel next–possibly Pretty Deadly, Vol 1. Technically I am in the middle of my audiobook, The Geek Feminist Revolution, but I haven’t listened to very much of it during the readathon so far.
2. How many books have you read so far?
So far I’ve finished 2 books–Alex + Ada, Volume 1 by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn and Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman. Both were really great picks for the readathon, and I definitely recommend them.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
Hmmmm…I’m very interested to see what Forest of Memory by Mary Robinette Kowal is all about, and it’s a novella so it’s easily finishable by the end of the ‘thon.
4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
I’ve done pretty well with not having interruptions so far–I was too caught up in Illuminae to get distracted. I did just take a break to work out and shower, but I think that will help refresh me for the second half of the readathon.
5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
I’m most surprised by the fact that I won a prize! I was actually one of the Hour 1 prize winners, and it was a really awesome surprise to see my name on there when I was able to join in on the readathon late this morning. I typically have terrible luck with giveaways and never win prizes, so thank you, Dewey’s!!!
I hope everyone is having a fantastic readathon so far!
