Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon, Fall 2019

Saturday, October 26th, 2019

Well that’s one way to spend a chunk of readathon: tracking down and fixing a malicious redirect, wheeeee! Now, on to the intro post I started in Hour 1 :)

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? South Portland, Maine
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? I just picked up Markus Zusak’s latest, bridge of clay, and I’m certain it’s going to be exquisite.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? I had a dozen oysters from my CSA delivered, so those will be a treat later today sometime.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I’m a Frances Perkins scholar, which is the program for non-traditional students at Mount Holyoke College, and I’m going to school full-time for the first time in my adult life. It’s pretty wild!
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’m going to use the energy of readathon to hopefully propel me through a significant chunk of the 235 page book I need to have read by next week’s medical anthropology classes rather than solely indulging in pleasure reading, which is what I typically do.

Hope everyone’s reading is off to a great start!
