Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon

I actually started reading around 8:30 this morning, and have read off and on since. But I've also gone to the farmer's market, planted some lettuce plants and done some research into the farms we're going to visit on the local farm tour this afternoon. I'm pretty sure the farm tour coincided with the readathon last year too.

Anyway, I like to do the Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon even though I never read the whole time. I'll read a lot tonight, I promise!

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

North Carolina

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

I don't expect I'll get a lot of books read, but I am looking forward to finishing The Metaxy Project by Layton Green, which I had started earlier in the week and have been reading today.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

The fresh hummus I bought at the farmer's market this morning!

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

I'm a mom of two kids, M who is 7 and C who will be 10 next month. That's why I generally don't really do the whole 24 hours of reading. We have far too much going on each weekend! I also work as a web content strategist for a big company, but am very lucky to work from home full time so I don't have to go into an office!

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'm going to try to read more this time. I planned to read a lot at night last time, and I just got too tired. So I'm going to try to stay awake longer this time!!

  1. I'm reading The Metaxy Project as well! *high fives*
    I absolutely adore Layton Green don't you?

    Happy Readathon Day! I'll come back and see what you thought of his stand-alone novel - I'm wavering on a couple of things. Enjoy those farm visits!

    1. I really love Layton Green as well. His novels make me think! I thought Metaxy Project was good, but I didn't get into it as much as his series.

  5. Your Readathons sound so similar to mine - always interspersed with the regular weekend activities with kids, errands, etc. and always with the hope of reading at night (and being tired). Oh, well, it's the participation that counts in this case, right? Hope you're enjoying your day!

    1. That's why I always come back to it. I may not read as many hours as most, but I really enjoy it!
