Dewey's Read-a-Thon - Hour 1

So it's officially started! I must admit I started half an hour early, because I literally did not have anything else left on my to-do list.

Here are the questions to the introduction meme:

1)Where are you reading from today?
I live in Holland and will be reading from 3 different locations: my parents' house in Best (yes, the town is really called Best, cool right?), later on in the train heading to my place and then finally at my place in Nijmegen.
2)Three random facts about me…
- I'm reading my books on an e-reader that I absolutely adore
- I can read practically anywhere as long as there's light (which isn't even necessary anymore with my e-reader: I have a cover with a little light :) )
- I love watching Grey's Anatomy
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
Right now, there are 4. As I progress they could change or if I'm really productive there'll be more books on it.
4)Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)?
I really want to at least finish 2 books, anything else is a bonus right now.
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
I'm a first time participant, so sadly: no.

My progress so far:
I'm 2/3 into Invincible Summer and my mom just brought me soup, so I think I'm good for some time to come.


  1. Good Luck! I did the readathon last time, and it was a lot of fun. Happy Reading!

  2. Give me an R
    Give me an E
    Give me an A
    Give me a D

    What does it spell? READ!!

    Lots of Dutch participants today! Have a great one and take it easy. It's all about enjoying yourself. ;)

  3. Best of luck!
    I would never be able to participate on a readton, my mom is already bugging me about chores :(

  4. Keep reading! You are doing great.

  5. Thanks for the encouragement! I'm thinking it'll get harder during the night and I probably need to sleep sometime..

    Alex - My mom brings me food :) We've been sitting in the backyard all afternoon, it was great!
