weekend plan: dewey’s readathon
posted by soe 6:38 am

This Saturday, I’ll be taking part in Dewey’s Readathon. I have no plans to do the full 24 hours, but will be spending some of my waking hours reading.

And to prep, here are my answers to the opening survey:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

The U.S. Washington, D.C., in particular.

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

I left the final third of How Rory Thorne Destroyed the Multiverse to finish as part of the event, and I’m very invested in the outcome.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

I probably did not prep adequately for snacking at home, so I’ll be taking a coffeeneuring break at some point. There will be a baked good of some ilk.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

My reading tastes in 2020 run toward romances, because I desperately need some happy endings. I’m a big fiction fan, but sometimes branch out into memoir. I am a big proponent of my local library, which kicks ass and which lends me way more books than they should.

I like to bake, knit, garden, and hang out with friends when there’s not a stupid pandemic going on. I have a demanding cat named Corey, who does not particularly care for reading. And I am a big fan of holidays, particularly Halloween and Christmas. (I run a Virtual Advent Tour in December for bloggers. Drop me a note in the comments if you’re new to the blog and interested in more details.)

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 think the last time I participated was last fall or maybe spring 2019. I will be interspersing my reading with some outdoor time — and probably some politicking.
