I am a huge fan of read-a-thons. And today April 25,2015 is the Dewey 24 hour read-a-thon. I was planning on making a progress video but, ended up getting my wisdom teeth taken out instead yesterday, so today I am recovering in bed. And although I am enjoying my time marathoning the “Pretty Little Liars”. I am also going to try and sneak some time here and there to read.
History on the Dewey 24 hour Read-a-thon, it was created by a lady named Dewey in 2007, but she passed away a year later and her blog was taken down. However, a group of fantastic woman got to together and they loved the read-a-thon so much that they decided to continue the tradition and carry on with it on their blog. They host it twice a year on time in April and once more in October. You have a choice to stay up the entire 24 hours and read or you can just read a couple of those hours. If you want more information check out their blog at: 24 hour read-a-thon
My TBR pile for this read-a- thon, was very easy to pick. I allowed myself to have a couple of choices. And since I slept in today and didn’t start until around 9am, I think I have decide to just make as much progress as I can on the two books that I am currently reading. The first book that I think that I can finish today is “The Summer I Turned Pretty,” by Jenny Han. And the book I want to make some progress on is “The Game of Thrones,” by George R.R. Martin.
Update as off 1:38pm in the Pacific time zone, I am reading “The Summer I Turned Pretty”. And I am on page 90/295.
Note: I finished “The Summer I turned pretty and I loved it. I can’t wait to read the rest of the trilogy this summer.
And I am on page 217/807 in the “A Game of Thrones” By George R.R. Martin.
Note: I am still slowing working my way through “A Game of Thrones. I am 307/807. My goal is to read at least 100 hundred pages tomorrow (5/25/2014).
Happy Reading, Rina
