Dewey’s readathon is the event I’ve been waiting for since April – and the wait is finally over. The readathon is back! If you haven’t participated before and are wondering what it’s all about, check the official website. The aim of the readathon is for us to spend the next 24 hours reading – it doesn’t matter where you are, whether you’re a blogger or not, or what genres you like, everyone and all types of books are welcome. We also take part in hourly challenges and chat with other participants throughout the day. It’s always tons of fun and is a brilliant way to make new friends, so if you’re free this weekend, do join us – it’s not too late to sign up.
One of the things I realised after 5 readathons under my belt is that I always end up reading long books. Which can become a bit exhausting towards the end of the readathon, especially if it’s not a particularly easy read. So I decided to change things up a bit. This time, I selected 3 short and easy books and 2 longer ones. The fact that 4 out of 5 books are review copies is just an added bonus.
I’ll probably start with the Guinea Pigs Online books (review copies from Quercus). They’re all around 170 pages but since they are children’s books, I should be able to get through them fairly quickly. I’m already halfway through Wonder so the plan is to read the second half and then move on to Cut Out (review copy from Hodder & Stoughton). I already read the first 100 pages of Cut Out as well but I have another 300 to go.
