Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-Thon: Start + Challenges!


Once again, it's time for Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-Thon.

And this time, it's the 10 anniversary one, and this will be the 16th time I'm participating.

So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my fav read-a-thon, and THANK YOU to DEWEY for starting this event, even though I never knew you, and THANK YOU to everyone else that keeps this event going!!!
As always, the read-a-thon for me starts at 2 pm on Saturday, and ends at 2 pm on Sunday.

As for reading, I have a pile of 15 books on my shelf I'll choose from, as well as my Kindle.

I'll just update this as I go...


Opening meme:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
- My home, in Macedonia.

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
- Violet Eyes by Debbie Viguie. 

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
- My munchmallows - already had 2 before it starts ;)

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
- I'm a coffee addict that loves to read.

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 participated in the last read-a-thon, but I won't do anything different, just read as much as I can, and do some of the challenges, and have fun.
