Hour 21 – The End is Nigh

Hello Readathoners! Anyone who has been doing these readathons for a while know that when I show up as the co-host, we are in the final stretch. I’ve been co-hosting the final hours of the readathon since April 2012. So that is 6 years (or 12 readathons) now. So, hello my lovelies! We are nearing the end.

Let me start out with telling you a bit about myself. I am 29 and live in beautiful Northern California. I am currently in a major cozy mystery binge, but my favorite genre is Fantasy. My favorite author is Brandon Sanderson and I will read anything he writes <3. This is the first readathon in YEARS where I don’t have several exotic cheeses and a wonderful crockpot soup to munch on, so I have to admit that I am a bit out of my element. This is also the first readathon that I haven’t used my blog (that I only dust of for readathons). Anyone else trying different things this time around? Anything work well for you all? I want my soup back!

In addition to co-hosting these final hours, I am also the moderator of the Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon Goodreads Group. Gabby (my fellow moderator) and I have been hosting a fun Scavenger Hunt this year. It is a group effort. So if you’re needing a small break from reading, why don’t you take a look over there and see if you can fit in any of the books that you’ve read. It is a lot of fun!

Before I let you all go for the rest of the hour, I want to take a moment to thank all of my fellow co-hosts who have taken some time out of their readathons to host a few hours. I want to extend this thanks to my group of co-moderators on the Goodreads page who spend an hour engaging with fellow readers. I really don’t know what we would do without you. 🙂

Now back to the books!

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

  1. This is my seventh (?!?!?) readathon and I never realized you lived in California. I thought you lived in Europe and were bright and perky after a night’s sleep. You are even more amazing for taking on the middle of the night! Thanks for keeping us going (she yawns herself awake and gets back to her book).

    1. Yep, I know. As I am getting older (not that 29 is old) these late shifts are getting harder and harder. I used to work graveyard shift or swing shifts and so it was no big deal. But now I feel it. And will probably feel it for a couple of days!

  2. The scavenger hunt was a great, fun idea! I bought a ton of snacks and made 2 “meals” (Texas caviar and 8-layer dip) this time around. I listened to more audio this time around as well but only because I was busy in the kitchen and had few hour hiccup. My time was less than October’s but more than last April’s so I’m happy!

    1. That’s really awesome! I am glad you enjoyed the idea. If Gabby and I do it again, we will have a better idea of goals to set. We set them way too high.
