Dewey's 24 Hour RaT ~ Wrap-up





Which hour was most daunting for you?
At 2:30am, my eyes were really burning. I closed them for a bit while listening to an audio, and was most refeshed.

Tell us ALLLLL the books you read!
See Below

Which books would you recommend to other Read-a-thoners?
In general? Chronicles of St Mary's, Great Zoo of China, The Martian..... from what I read? Susan Stoker for some enjoyable Romantic Suspense.

What’s a really rad thing we could do during the next Read-a-thon that would make you smile?
Change up more of these questions, yay that these were changed. The first few challenges this year were really good, the rest were still pretty boring.

How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? Would you be interested in volunteering to help organize and prep?
I'll definitely read, and I would be willing to help.

Dewey's 24 Hour RaT ~ Mid-Event Survey & 12 Hr Update




Mid-Event Survey

1. What are you reading right now?
Nothing right now, I just finished a book, in time to do a 12 Hour Update. I will be starting on A Perfect Storm next.

2. How many books have you read so far?
I just finished up my 5th book of the day

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
Nothing really. I'm looking forward to "A Perfect Storm" but it's super short, so I'll be through that so fast. I want to do a few shorter books to get a few more in towards my yearly goal which I'm behind on. I also need to do one more specific thing for my Evolution of WDW challenge, so once I do that, then a lot will open up to me to do.

4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Just my Hubby but He's been letting me read. :) We visited for a few minutes when He got home from work, and talked here and there, but for the most part, He's been watching shows and I've been reading. No real distractions this year, and I only didn't read for about 45 minutes of the first 12 hhours.

5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
Better challenges this year!! YAY!! Still same opening/mid/closing questions, but a few good new challenges and they have actually been fun. YAY!

Dewey's 24 Hour RaT ~ 10 Years in 11 Books!



10 years in 10 Books



Wow, what a task, to cover 10 years with only 10 books! (Well, technically, since counting both 2007 & 2017, it's 11 books.) :) A challenge I readily take on. At least I know 2011 is a lock! :) So, here are my 10 Books in the past 10 years, though some are gonna be harder to pick than others! :D As always, the books link back to GoodReads, so you can easily mark them TBR. :)

All books listed are books I have personally read, and recommend! I've picked one book per series (sorry, Cursed Child!).
