Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon – Hourly Updates, April 2019 edition

Hour 12

Finished the first part of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft.  It is really good so far!  I can’t wait to share my thoughts with you all in tomorrow’s check-in post.  🙂

Hour 5

I just woke up, got a great night’s sleep and am ready for the day!  Here’s my answers to the Getting to Know You Survey from Hour 1…

1)What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
I’m at home in Washington state.  Today is going to be a rainy day, perfect for reading!

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
From my stack, I’m most anticipating The Time Machine, which I haven’t read in probably over 10 years.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I never seem to have snacks prepared (sigh).  Maybe I’ll treat myself to some hot cocoa.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
This is my first readathon as a (rookie) manager, which is why I’ll be reading The Making of a Manager by Julie Zhuo.  I started reading it last week, and so far it’s pretty good!

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 time I’m saving my weekend chores for tomorrow and I’m not going to think about any work stuff.  I’ll also be balancing my time with Camp Nanowrimo.  🙂

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon: TBR stack, April 2019

My weekend is completely booked…uh, no pun intended.  This is all happening tomorrow:

  • Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon – one of my favorite events of the year
  • Ruth’s Rights of Woman Readathon – reading/writing thoughts
  • Working on the ending of my book (it’s coming along)
  • Sending part I of my book to readers (thank you again!!)

Here’s the lineup for the readathon (books I’ll be making progress on, not necessarily finishing).  As always, I’ll be posting updates to Instagram and Goodreads.

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman / Mary Wollstonecraft
The Making of a Manager / Julie Zhuo
The Lost City of Z / David Grann
The Time Machine (reread) / H. G. Wells
Ben-Hur / Lew Wallace
And anything else I can muster.  But that’s probably stretching it as it is.
