Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon  is taking place October 18 and I'm happy to be able to participate. Here's a stack of books I'll be choosing from: 
I've been in a bit of a slump lately, hopefully this will shake me out of it. 
Anyone participating in this read-a-thon? What books will you be reading?

Update #1: Hour 8: Finished Authority and am halfway through Acceptance, the Southern Reach books were a great choice for the read-a-thon. Took a break for a run at hour 4 and listened to Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy on audio.

The Accidental Authority Acceptance Box

Mid-Event Survey:
1. What are you reading right now? Finishing Acceptance by Jeff Vandermeer

2. How many books have you read so far?
 Just one, soon to be two.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
 I'll probably pick up Holly Black's The Darkest Part of the Forest, I've been looking forward to reading for a while. 
4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? A few, mostly phone calls and laundry that won't fold itself, etc. It's good to rest my eyes a little. Also I spent a surprising amount of time on twitter.


5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
I'm surprised how relaxed I've been about meeting reading goals this year. Though, I am going to try to read into the night, I have a stock of tea to help me maybe finish one more book.

I really like the idea of walking or running while listening to an audio during the 'Thon. Next year for sure!

Hope it's going well for you!
