While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals, middle-grade, and non-fiction.
Slightly belated closing meme because I had to run off to a parent meeting about an international trip my son will be taking next year immediately after the Readathon ended.
I didn’t have an hour that was particularly daunting. I’d come into the Readathon with the first book picked out. I did have trouble resisting the swan-song of social media and deciding what to read mid-evening when I finished my first novel. I had the same hiccup after finishing my 1st book during #24in48 in January.
As with the past Readathons, I recommend having a few picture books around for change of pace. I used this Readathon as an excuse to read the 2017 Caldecott Award Winner and 2 of the 4 Caldecott Honor books.
I really liked the search feature on the participant list (when the internet was cooperating and the list of participants was up).
I liked the focus on giving (though I wouldn't necessarily want this to become a constant). I pledged $5 per 100 pages read to BookMates and will be rounding up to a $45 donation.
Finished 1 novel & 5 picture books. Also finished a graphic novel that I’d started a while ago and started another novel.
Either They All Saw the Cat or Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast
March Book 3 has been a challenging read, but it’s not really a question of liking or disliking, more just of being emotionally wrenching
Very likely to participate again as a reader, and cheerleader. Depending on schedule, maybe I’ll think about signing up for a co-hosting slot on the GoodReads group.
I also have participated in #24in48 and recommend that folks who like Dewey’s Readathon check them out for more bookish fun.
