Dewey’s Readathon


Opening Meme:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? – Bosnia and Herzegovina
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? – The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. I’ve been meaning to read it for a long time.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? – Chocolate!
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! – I’m 23 years old, a student and I haven’t been reading much lately, but I’m gonna change that now.
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? – I participated in the last few readathons. The thing that’s really different today is that I’m not prepared at all. There’s only one book that I know I’ll read, the first hour has already started and I’m only writing this now, I wasn’t even sure I’ll participate until the last minute.

Hour 21 update: I had unexpected guests (twice) during this readathon, and then I fell asleep. So I didn’t get to read as much as I wanted to. But there’s still a couple of hours to go!

Finished reading: 

Pride and Prejudice manga adapted by Stacy King

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

End of Event Meme:

Which hour was most daunting for you? – The last couple of hours.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? – The Sky is Everywhere for people who like YA books
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? –  Nah, it’s all good.
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? – Cheerleaders! They always do 🙂
How many books did you read? – Only two 😦
What were the names of the books you read? – The Sky is Everywhere and Pride and Prejudice manga.
Which book did you enjoy most? – The Sky is Everywhere
Which did you enjoy least? – I liked both of the books that I read, but P&P was a bit cheesy.
If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? – I wasn’t a cheerleader this time. 
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? – I’ll definitely participate as a reader and maybe a cheerleader.

  1. It wouldn’t be a proper readathon without chocolate! 😉
    Sometimes it’s fun to just see where the day will take you without any planning beforehand. I hope you have a great readathon! Happy reading!


  2. Just going with the flow during a read-a-thon is the best idea in my opinion! I hope that you are having lots of fun while finishing some great books! Keep up the GREAT work! Happy reading!!



  3. Hi Tanja—congrats on finishing your manga! I hope you’ve enjoyed plenty of chocolate treats and that there are more to come.

    Happy reading! 🙂 #rahrahreadathon


  4. Hey! I hope you are having fun! I am noticing you like manga a lot. What are your favs? I ask because I’m a big manga fan (Full metal alchemist and read or die) and I’m also here to give you a big shout out of you can do it! Try staying up just a little longer you can do it! But of course if you are already in bed then Good for you! you tried your best and had a good time and that is all that matters!
    -your cheerleaders


    1. Hi! My favorites are Fullmetal Alchemist, Bleach and Death Note. This is the first time I’ve heard of Read or Die, but it’s on my to-read list now. Thanks for cheering!
