If you don't know what the 24 Hour Readathon  (Dewey's Readathon) is all about go check out the link. And maybe join in?

For everyone else- this is my official Readathon post for the day. I will be updating it with reading updates and challenges.

Let’s get started. First the Pre-Party questions.

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? Nova Scotia, Canada where the fall colours are amazing!
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? Emily Carroll’s Into the Woods
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? Probably the Honeycrisp apples with caramel sauce.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I’m Chris from Chrisbookarama. I’ve been book blogging for almost 9 years now and I have no idea how many Readathons I’ve participating over the years. 
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? Not much. I’m pretty casual about the  Readathon. I do have much breakfast and lunch prepared already. I’m hoping that will be a time saver.

Update: Hour 6

I’ve read 7 short stories from The Doll Collection. Then I had to do some stuff so I started listening to The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. This is a fatal error. I started cleaning out a cupboard.

Snacks: Breakfast of French toast. Lemon loaf and Earl Grey tea.


Mid-Event Survey

1. What are you reading right now? Right now I’m reading They Found Him Dead by Georgette Heyer.
2. How many books have you read so far? None so far, just parts of books.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? Through the Woods by Emily Carroll
4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Soooo many interruptions. Not much I can do about them since they are kid related.
5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? At how fast it is going by!

Update Hour 16

Yay! Finally finished a book: Through the Woods by Emily Carroll. It’s so creepy.

I have a few chapters of They Found Him Dead by Georgette Heyer. It’s great. So many good quotes in it.

It’s after midnight here. I’m not sure how much I have left in me, but I’m still going.


  1. Mmmm! I have some honeycrisps waiting for me, too. With peanut butter. Enjoy the day!! And share some leaf pictures. :)

  2. I got a Heyer mystery novel in Ireland! Glad to hear you liked her writing style.
