Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon

Final Update on May 1 at 14:32 pm MDT.

I’m so excited! Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon is finally here! Well, it starts in 6 hours anyway. During the readathon, all my updates will be posted on Instagram. (If you’d like to follow me on Instagram , click here.) Tomorrow, I’ll wrap everything up at the end this post so be sure to check back after the readathon ends.

During past readathons, I’ve gotten together with a couple of friends and we’ve read a couple of hours together, which was a lot of fun! We’re going to do the same this time around too. Around noon my time today, I’ll be over at Suey’s (It’s All About Books) house and shenanigans will be had between Suey, her daughter Tori, Kami (Kami’s Library Thoughts), and me.

Readathon TBR

I want to finish reading DEAR EMMIE BLUE by Lia Louis and start and finish THE HORSE AND HIS BOY, which is April’s installment for the Narniathon21. I also want to start the two read-along books for Wyrd & Wonder the Fifth, which begins tomorrow. The books are THE SUMMER TREE by Guy Gavriel Kay and THE DARKEST PART OF THE FOREST by Holly Black. I may start my IRL book club’s May book, CARVE THE MARK by Veronica Roth too.

Instagram Updates and Challenge Prompts

Here are the pictures I posted on Instagram during the readathon:


Pages Read: 404 pages
Time Read: 12h 7m 39s (according to Bookly)
Books Read: I spent most of my time reading DEAR EMMIE BLUE. I listened to about 25 minutes of THE SUMMER TREE audio book and realized I’ll have to read the physical book because I can’t follow along. I spent quite a few hours reading THE HORSE AND HIS BOY, mostly trying to stay awake at the end of the readathon.
Comments: I read more during this readathon than probably all the other readathons I’ve participated in combined.

How did you do this readathon? Did you meet your goals?

    I love the goals that readers set for themselves. I have much less lofty ones: finish my Book Club book and read whatever else I want for pleasure, usually mysteries.

      The goals for me are just to try to see what I can and ca’t do in a period of time. Mostly it’s about fun, though. I don’t want it to become a chore. Otherwise, I won’t read and that’s not what I want at all. 😉

      Thanks! 🙂 She’s such a great kitty. I love her dearly. And, yes, I did finish it last night. I’ll be posting my thoughts sometime this week, probably on Friday.

      Lol. I totally get what you’re saying. Izzy does make reading hard sometimes, mostly when she wants to be right in my face. When she sits in my lap or next to me or like she is in this picture, then it’s not so bad. 😀
