[Lesemarathon] Dewey’s 24 Hour #Readathon April 2014

deweys readathon girlEs ist soweit. Es ist Samstag, der 26. April. Heute fällt der Startschuss für Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon.

Ich freue mich und habe mir schon das ein oder andere Buch herausgesucht, mit dem ich die nächsten 24 Stunden verbringen möchte. Essen und Getränke (Cola und Energy Drinks, höhö) stehen ebenfalls bereit und für den kleinen Zuckerschock ist in Form von Osterschokolade gesorgt.

Ich hoffe nur ich halte auch lange genug durch. ^^ Gelesene Bücher bzw Seiten werden übrigens in diesem Formular eingetragen ( klick ), da im Rahmen des Read-a-thons auch Preise verlost werden. Zumindest glaube ich das. Eigentlich will ich ja nur mal wieder bei einem Lesemarathon mitmachen. ^^

Auf Twitter kann man den Readathon und seine Teilnehmer ebenfalls verfolgen, zum einen via dem Account readathon, zum anderen unter diesen Hashtags: #Readathon #Dewey #MiniChallenge #RahRahReadathon

HOUR 0 KICK OFF MEME (Link)

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
I am from Germany, and therefore I am reading from Germany (a comfy sofa at the moment… )
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I don’t have an actual stack (or can you call 3 books a stack?). But I will start with Fall Into Forever by Beth Hyland. I’m looking forward to this, actually. And then there are One Oblique One by Keith Wright and maybe Scarlet by Marissa Meyer on my list. We will see. ^^
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I have countless of snacks, but I do look forward to the bananas and the cucumbers (no pun intended).
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I’m 26, a lab rat, a bookaholic, Sherlockian, Whovian, Roleplayer (on Twitter).
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 did read-a-thons before, but not this read-a-thon. I hope I will stay awake for a bit longer than last time and actually read instead of browsing all the blogs.. I always get distracted by different blogs…

Ich liebe diesen Song. Dank dem Blog zum Readathon bin ich darauf aufmerksam geworden und er läuft quasi in Endlosschleife. Nicht so toll wenn man eigentlich lesen möchte und sich viel zu schnell ablenken lässt. So richtig wach bin ich irgendwie auch noch nicht. -.-

Well, that was fast. ^^ Finished my second book and therefore read nearly 500 pages so far. Good count. But it is getting later and later ( 3 in the morning.. ) and I am getting a bit tired… not good. And once again I have to ask myself the usual question: Which book shall I read next? Something simple.. because it is late.. but nothing boring… It’s difficult.

Ich bin eingeschlafen! Irgendwann. Nachdem ich mich kurz abgelenkt habe und einen Film geschaut hab… und dann ins Bett bin zwecks Positionswechsel. Von da an war es ein drifting in and out of sleep, bis es mich dann gegen 9 Uhr morgens komplett dahin gerafft hat. Aber an sich… mit 2,5 Büchern ist der Lesemarathon gar nicht so schlecht gelaufen. Gerne wieder. ^^

END OF EVENT MEME

Which hour was most daunting for you?
Seriously? Around hour sixteen. I was barely able to focus on reading back then. But I also had to distract myself with a movie in between.
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers
The Wicked We Have Done by Sarah Harian
Newsflesh Trilogy (Feed, Deadline, Blackout) by Mira Grant
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
More caffeine throughout the whole thing. And a bit more sleep before it starts. In my timezone, the read-a-thon started at 2pm, so I was already awake for a few hours.. quite difficult if you try to stay awake..
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
Reading. ^^ Not falling asleep too soon. ^^
How many books did you read?
Basically 2,5 books. Nearly 600 pages.
What were the names of the books you read?
Fall Into Forever by Beth Hyland
Sherlock: Every Canon Reference You May Have Missed in BBC’s Series 1-3 by Valerie Estelle Frankel
Charred Tears by Lizzy Ford ( only half way through )
Which book did you enjoy most?
Charred Tears, I think. Although I liked Fall Into Forever too.
Which did you enjoy least?
The non-fiction one, although some of the information given was very interesting. But I knew most of the canon references already.
If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
I wasn’t a cheerleader. But they have done a great job. ^^
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I want to take part in the whole thing again, as a Reader. Not sure if I am even able to do cheering. ^^
