The Reverse Summer Readathon starts now! I love the 8pm – 8pm eastern set-up. I won’t be able to read the whole time because I will fall asleep, but there’s nothing else on the calendar since we’re stuck at home recovering from COVID. I’m prepared: I’ve got my snacks, I’ve got my books, plenty of coffee and water, and we’ll order dinner tomorrow. I’ll be posting updates here but probably more on Twitter and Instagram.
I might have started reading a little early today and already finished The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde this afternoon, which had been on my readathon tbr list.
- What fine part of the world are you reading from today? Eastern Ohio
- Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? Maybe Murder by the Book, a British Library Crime Classics anthology of short stories.
- Which snack are you most looking forward to? Cinnamon rolls with ice cream
- Tell us a little something about yourself! I love mysteries.
- 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 did participate, I think. I won’t really do much different. I do like this timing better. I like being awake at the beginning and end.
- What are you reading right now? A Killer Sundae by Abby Collette
- How many books have you read so far? I finished one last night
- What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the readathon? Maybe The Game Is a Footnote by Vicki Delany
- Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Only of my own making – I went to sleep.
- What surprises you most about the readathon, so far? No surprises so far.
- How would you assess your reading overall? Really good. I read all mysteries and enjoyed them all.
- Did you have a stategy, and if so, did you stick to it? Nope, no strategy
- What was your favorite snack? Fresh cinnamon rolls
- Wanna volunteer for our next event? Stay tuned for the recap post! Maybe
