Dewey's Read-a-Thon: Mid-Event Survey

1. What are you reading right now?
     Still on Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan - I don't know how many hours (at least three).  I'm on what I believe is chapter 35 (page 437)

2. How many books have you read so far?
    I've completed three, this is book #4

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
     I think I'm going to start reading the next October Daye books I have waiting.

4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
    Not many - just being asked some questions from the parents, and taking a break to cook lunch. Though I am going out in just a few minutes to go celebrate a friend's birthday.

5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
     It really feels that time is going by a lot faster than I thought.  I also thought I would have read more books, but it does feel good to save I've read at least 600 pages so far today - hoping to make that at least 1,000 before the end.


  1. 4? Wow. It does seem to be going fast, I agree. Hope you have a good evening.

  2. You are doing great! I stopped the Percy Jackson books for a while after The Titan's Curse but maybe I will come back to them soon. Have a nice rest of the read-a-Thon

    1. You definitely should - I also stopped for awhile before picking up the 'second' series but I'm enjoying.

  3. It does make you feel quite happy, to think of the accomplishments of the day.

    Hope you are having a great readathon.
