Today is #Dewey’s #Read-a-Thon. Game on!

Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon is an international reading challenge where everyone participates at the same time. For 24 hours, participants read books, post on their blogs (and/or social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, etc.) about their reading, and visit other readers’ blogs. Participants also take part in mini-challenges throughout the day and win prizes.

I have signed up as a reader.

Are you participating? What are you going to read?

Hour 1 – I Like Big Books!

Introduction Questionnaire

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Atlanta, GA, USA

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I didn’t get a chance to read Fallen by Stacy Claflin during the Fraterfest Read-aThon. I plan to get to it today. Check out my interview with the author and get the link for a free ebook copy via Amazon.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
A bag of granny smith apples

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
This is my second Dewey’s Read-a-Thon. I participated in April 2013.

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today?
I have my snacks and meals ready to go ahead of time. See my post Hello, Dewey? Have Back-up List, No Food from the last read-a-thon. I am also listening to more audiobooks so that I can participate in more of the challenges.

Hour 2 – Hey Reader! You So Fine. You So Fine You Blow My Mind.
