Dewey's Readathon Ending Survey
Artificial Condition - Martha Wells
Deeper Than the Dead - Tami Hoag
The Thirteenth Tale - Diane Setterfield

They've changed up the survey questions!

 

How would you assess your reading overall?

I'm happy. I read for about 5 hours

 

This is more than I've read in a long while

 

Did you have a strategy, and if so, did you stick to it?

Not strategy other than to read when I could around a tired Friday night and a very busy Saturday.

 

What was your favorite snack?

The leftover falafel bowl I ate for lunch

 

Wanna volunteer for our next event?

I have and will gladly cheer for other readers, or even captain a cheering squad on the day of the event, but my life is too full to commit to working outside the day of the Readthon itself.

Summer 2019 Reverse Readathon
The Thirteenth Tale - Diane Setterfield

I haven't felt the urge to blog since last November.  And have been spending more time on cooperative online games rather than reading, but decided to play along on the Summer 2019 Dewey's Reverse Readathon

 

1)What fine part of the world are you reading from today? And what time is it where you are?

 

Southern NJ, so in the "official" time zone.  Starting at 8 pm

 

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

 

Only book I've preselected is The Thirteenth Tale - Diane Setterfield  which my IRL book club is reading

 

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

 

Our blackberries are ripe, so I am planning to bake blackberry squares sometime in the next day or so

 

4) Do you have a #reversereadathon plan of attack?

 

I haven't been reading/blogging a lot. My goals are 1) to make progress on the book for my book club and 2) to spend some time catching up logging the books I've read in the last few months

 

5) Are you doing the readathon solo or with others?

 

I am the only one doing the Readathon, but I live in a household of readers.  Hubby is curled up with Gardner Dozois's last anthology and younger son is reading web-fiction serials (as usual)

Hour 13 of Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon: Mid-Event Survey

1. What are you reading right now?  Still on same book, Terminal Uprising - Jim C. Hines  
2. How many books have you read so far? Not even a whole one
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? White Trash Zombie Apocalypse - Diana Rowland  
4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Yes, unusually amounts including grill out invites, Thunder Over Louisville, Final Four college basket ball stuff -- neighbors haven't heard from in years are suddenly social now I'm busy.  How did I deal with it -- hey, a girl has to eat.
5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?  How little activity leading up to it; usually more and usually actual date announced sooner.  Instagram (where I don't even have an account ) seems a bigger part of it now.  Presumably because bookstagram portions have grown and Twitter is so frequently toxic or over-spammed.

Hour 8.5 of Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon

Still going.  The healthy snacks have been ditched -- onto microwaving leftover garlic parmesan fries from one of the Urban Bourbon Trail restaurants visited last night.

 

Some of the mini-challenges this round were too social media orientated for me.  Usually there's a lot more activity and stuff before the actual readathon within book sites groups, bloggers, etc.with more places than just twitter and instagram -- even the goodreads group seems quite of quiet this time as if got as little notice as for the previous surprise reverse readathon.
