Dewey's 24h Readathon: Mid Event Meme


1. What are you reading right now?

I only have like 2 chapters left of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly by Jean-Dominique Bauby

2. How many books have you read so far?

I finished with The City of Lost Souls (the last 277 pages) plus the book mentioned in question 1. 

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?

I think I'm going to start To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han next and read for as long as I feel like maybe sleeping.

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?

Well, I kind of "had" to take a break early on to watch a hockey game, but it was totally worth it because my team won the FINNISH CHAMPIONSHIP. I am still kind of flying high from that...

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?

The game, nothing else. At first I had hard time concentrating on anything else than the fact that I want to go to home so bad and celebrate with my friends, but since I knew that it was impossible I just delved back into reading. I can celebrate during the summer, I guess...

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?

Not much really...

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

Nothing to add, at least not yet.

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?

Maybe a more definite plan for what to read so I would not spend too much time on picking books.

9. Are you getting tired yet?

Not really, but I feel like in a couple of hours I will start to wind down a little bit.

10. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered?

  1. Congratulations on your team victory! It's pretty impressive the amount of reading you've managed in spite of a hockey match. Way to go!

    Have fun reading! #TeamWordsworth

  2. Thanks! The amount of reading would probably have been nonexistent if I would actually have been in my hometown to celebrate, but since I was watching the game abroad, I was able to continue pretty much after the game ended.

    Thanks for stopping by :)
