That’s a wrap on another round of Dewey’s! I had a great day reading, and I think it really helped me to de-stress a bit.
Dewey’s Closing Survey:
- How would you assess your reading overall?
I’m really happy with the amount of reading I got done during the readathon, and I’m even happier about the fact that I thoroughly enjoyed everything that I read.
I finished 3 books (technically 2 novellas and one novel) during the readathon, all of which I really liked and rated 4 stars:
I also read from but didn’t finish 2 other books (one audiobook and one physical book):
Overall, I read a total of 623 pages and listened to 2.5 hours of audio.
2. Did you have a strategy, and if so, did you stick to it?
I did! I had this idea of starting and ending the readathon with novellas, and that definitely worked well for me.
3. What was your favorite snack?
I’d made tabbouleh the day before and enjoyed snacking on that during the readathon.
4. Did you add any new books to your TBR/wishlist after seeing what everyone else is reading?
I saw that another reader had We Ride Upon Sticks by Quan Barry in their stack, a book on my October TBR that I didn’t pick up during the readathon, which reminded me that I really need to get started on that one!
5. What was your favorite book or experience from this readathon?
Although I gave all 3 of my finished reads from Dewey’s 4 stars, I’d have to say that my favorite was Once There Were Wolves. I thought that the writing was excellent, I really liked the environmentalism themes, and it kept me thoroughly intrigued the entire time reading. Also, even though I only read the first 50 pages of The Heart Principle, I am absolutely LOVING IT so far. I love Anna as a new protagonist and I just find her chapters feel so realistic and immersive in her experience.
