Dewey Read-a-Thon Spring 2013

Introductory Questionnaire

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

I am in Colorado (United States) 

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I am looking forward to making a dent in my young adult reading, but I am most looking forward to reading A Wish and a Prayer by Beverly Jenkins.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I neglected to pick up my favorite cinnamon flavored snacks at the grocery store, but I do have a stash of Ritz crackers and Granny Smith apples (Yum!)

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I am a career educator, newly hired librarian, and a lifetime reader. A few of my favorite authors are James Baldwin, Langston Hughes, Octavia Butler, Tananarive Due, Alice Walker, and Toni Morrison. I also enjoy reading cozy mysteries, middle grade fiction and young adult titles.

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?
October 2012 was my first read-a-thon and I wasn't near a computer to complete mini-challenges and blog updates. Today I chose one of my favorite libraries as read-a-thon headquarters. Here I have good light, computer access, and a built-in source of additional reading material just in case I need to veer away from my planned reading.

  1. I'm envious of your location! The one time I situated myself in a public setting is the only time I was able to stay up 24 hours. Home is comfortable, but when I'm home I get too comfortable. Anyway, good luck with your reading!
