Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon ~ Opening Meme

It's almost Dewey Time!

I ended up sleeping pretty good, which with how I sleep, is very good. Still waking up but feeling good so far. Ready to get started with a ton of reading!! If you post on a blog, feel free to leave me a link and I'll come visit you today.  I don't do Twitter, but I love regular (not Tumblr) blogs and love to visit others still posting on blogs.

Opening Meme:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Sparta, NC ~ the middle of no where.  :)

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Last Dewey's I was BURNT out after a huge challenge at GoodReads and really wasn't feeling books that that point. I think I did ok though. I'm still in more of a slump than I usually am, having read only 62 books so far this year. Typically I'd be a bit higher than that, especially with my 300 book Challenge for GoodReads. Anyways, still being slow with reading so have a few I'm looking forward to, mainly my re-read (audiobook) of "The Great Zoo of China" bu Matthew Reilly that I'll save for the end hours when I'm getting sleepy, and also the audiobook of "Bound" by Benedict Jacka ~ the 8th book in the Alex Verus series, and one of my favorite narrators.  

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
As always ~ EVERYTHING!!  I'm one of the junky eaters, though Hubby and I have been losing weight and while I'm going to endulge this weekend, I usually don't snack as much anymore. So for this Dewey's all I have snackwise is the Recee's Spread with Graham cracker and Cupcake Goldfish. That's it! We'll have Dunkin Donut donuts for breakfast, pizza for lunch and chicken strips and tots for dinner. 

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
HI! I'm Karsyn, nearing 40 (though much much younger in spirit), deeply in love with and married to my high school best friend. I LOVE to read, obviously, and am blessed with a ton of time to read. In a typical month I will read 15-20 books, often more, and when there's something going on, like Dewey's, I read a ton more! Beyond my books, I'm a gamer, and I built my own Gaming PC, 2 years ago, which I named Widget (after The Night Circus character). Widget is GREAT and we've had so much fun playing games on him!! Right now if I'm not reading, I'm playing Elder Scrolls Online ~ anyone else? Love to have more ESO friends!   :)

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?
This is my 7th Dewey's so I'll do what I've been doing, try to read at least 20 total hours of the 24, if not a little more with the help of audios. My Hubby has the day off, it's always easier to do Dewey's when He isn't here, but hopefully nothing too crazy will happen so I can just read.

Definites on the Reading List: 



  1. Oooh, I should've prepared some audio books too, that's always a good idea. Have fun reading :D

  2. Very nice! And I think 62 books is still SUPER IMPRESSIVE! Good luck for the Readathon! :) ;)
