Hour 15 – Fabulous Feasts

Welcome back, everyone! This is your co-host Elizabeth from Earl Grey Editing. It’s my last hour here and then I’ll be handing over to Rachel Noel from Purple Owl Reviews. She has some great posts lined up, so make sure you stick around for those.

It’s just going on midday in Australia, which means it’s time for lunch. No matter what time zone you’re in, make sure you stop to have a good meal at some point. It can be tempting to just keep snacking and turning the pages. But more often than not, you’ll feel better for some proper food, even if it means a quick break.

And if you’re super enthusiastic and prepared, consider something themed: a Mad Hatter’s tea party, perhaps, or a Game of Thrones feast. If that’s too much of a stretch for today (there are books to read, after all!), there’s always the next readathon in October.

Have you got any favourite recipes you like to use during the readathon? I’d love to hear!

Participate in our Mini-Challenges ANY TIME! They are located HERE, and they are all open for the entire 24 hours of the event! 

If you see your name announced as an hourly prize winner, visit the PRIZES page to claim.

    1. It ended up being cool and grey in my part of the world, so corn chowder would have been perfect! I shall have to keep it in mind for next time.


  1. Snacked a bit throughout the day. I made Texas Caviar (black beans, black eyed peas (couldn’t find them at the store so subbed in chick peas/garbanzo beans), onions, green peppers, jalapenos, grape tomatoes, green onions, all mixed with Italian dressing and some fresh cilantro!) for “lunch.” Then I made 8-layer dip (refried beans, sour cream and taco seasoning, premade guacamole, olives, plum tomatoes, green onions, jalapenos!) with tortilla chips for “dinner.” Didn’t eat nearly as many snacks as I thought I would so looking forward to consuming the remainder throughout the next week!


  2. My first Dewey’s Readathon, I prepared tea sandwiches, scones, petit fours and the like. I read Jane Austen all day and enjoyed my version of “High Tea” whenever I was hungry.
