Thoughts: I'm actually kinda surprised I managed to read that much! I had a very busy day and I was kinda tired in the evening and still I did it! I even read the 2 chapters of Clash of Kings like I was supposed to :)

Bookish Survey Challenge:

1. I organize my shelves by separating my read – to be read books :)
2. Probably The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.
3. Kinda boring but actually the one above :D
4. I don't know which I'm most exited about.. The short ones probably..
5. What book I recommend most? Well obviously if you haven't read Potters it would be them :)

Bout of Books 13 Goals

Bout of Books
Goals are always an important part of my readathon experience. I feel I don't get as much reading done without goals and setting them is always so much fun! In fact setting goals is one of the things I'm actually really looking forward to when I hear there is going to be a readathon. Even though I have goals it doesn't mean that I will be 100% going to go by them or that I will actually manage to complete them all. It's just fun to kinda have the guidelines but it's also fun to break them. I tend to set myself too many goals and can't actually complete them all most of the time but it really doesn't bother me at all. It's always nice to see if you can outdo yourself :)

Basic Goals

- Read at least 100 pages/ day
- Read at least 2 chapters of A Clash of Kings/ day
- Participate...

Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon April 2015 Sign Up!


So it is here again – The Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon!! 25th of April is the day. I'm so excited and of course I'm participating. I mean who wouldn't! I will be posting my goal list later on. Also I think I will do hourly updates on the day because last time it was really fun and provided a nice break every hour which I think helped me to read the whole 24 hours.

I hope to see you in the 25th!
