Dewey Spring 2013 24 Hour #Readathon Wrap-Up Post

Hello reader friends! This year instead of constantly updating with the books I read, I just decided to read consistently without taking any breaks — FYI, that is only possible because as soon as I finished a print book, I turned on my audiobook and would listen while completing tasks around the house. So, here are the wrap up questions for the Dewey 2013 24 Hour Readathon.

Dewey Readathon

Which hour was most daunting for you?

Definitely the last one, so for me that was going from 12 a.m. to 1 a.m., which after I finished reading the Sailor Moon manga, I just gave up and went to sleep.

Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

Sailor Moon vol. 1, Sky On Fire by Emmy Laybourne, anything by Roald Dahl, any sort of graphic novel

Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

Not really. I’ve been doing this a long time and I think the readathon is great as is.

What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

For me, personally, it was the whole walking around with audiobooks and also taking some time to workout, that really helps me to feel energized and better.

How many books did you read?

10

What were the names of the books you read?

  • James And The Giant Peach by Roald Dahl
  • Salt: A Story Of Friendship In A Time Of War by Helen Frost
  • Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool (I finished the last 1 hour and 18 minutes of the audiobook)
  • Zebra Forest by Adina Rishe Gewirtz
  • Reaper by Rachel Vincent (audio)
  • Sky On Fire by Emmy Laybourne
  • The Adventure Of The Blue Carbuncle by Arthur Conan Doyle (audio)
  • White Lines by Jennifer Banash (I previously read 43 pages of this book)
  • All I Need by  Susane Colasanti
  • Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon vol 1 by Naoko Takeuchi (all of the <33333333)

Which book did you enjoy most?

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon vol. 1

Which did you enjoy least?

I liked them all but I was the least attached to The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle and Reaper.

How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?

100% likely. I will continue to be a reader, but I might also attempt to do more with cheerleading. Maybe I will even be inspired to actually do some mini challenges.

  3. Wow, 10 books! Definitely have to add a graphic novel and some Roald Dahl in October. Will beef up my list and make me feel better about only reading 1 book! awesome job!

  4. They are publishing Sailor Moon books?
    For realz? I need to get all over that soon!!

    Congrats on finishing the Read A Ton

  5. You made it all the way to the end! I am impressed!!! I do enjoy this read-a-thon 🙂

  6. Wow, 10 books! That’s awesome. Go April!! I need to read the GN of Sailor Moon. We have then at the library, but generally GN aren’t my favorite – especially manga because I have a hard time with reading from “back” to “front”. But it’s Sailor Moon, and if it was your favorite then I should give it a go.

    Also, what did you think of James and the Giant Peach? I listened to the audio (narrated by Jeremy Irons!) a few years ago and really liked it.
