Dewey's 24 Readathon - October 2015

Questo post sarà interamente in inglese in occasione del Dewey's 24 Readathon, una maratona di lettura a cui partecipo sempre con estremo entusiasmo! Seguitemi anche voi!

Can't wait to start this readathon! I wait for it for months, together with my sister. We are going to read, read, read the whole day!

Let's start!


1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?  Naples, in Italy.
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?  "Dimentica il mio nome" by Zerocalcare.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? Tea!
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I really love reading and I am a philosopher...
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? I changed location, I am in a more quiet place.


HOUR 5
BOOKS: I finished Zerocalcare's Dimentica il tuo nome, that is so amazing that I will write another post for it. It is a beautiful and brilliant graphic novel. It shaped my mind and it let me understand an important thing about adulthood.



CHALLENGES: 

I chose to make the Cover Escape challenge by Unabridged Chick.
I selected a book that I love, from the seies of Nancy Drew. I want to escape in this cover, among the beautiful lanscapes of Scotland and possibly with Nancy Drew! 




The other challenge I took is the Goodreads Road Trip challenge.
I chose a song for an imaginary trip with the main character of the book I just finished. 
It is "No one would riot for less" by Bright Eyes, a really sad song that suits perfectly with the sad mood of this graphic novel.




FOOD: I ate some sandwich for lunch (in Italy readathon starts at 14.00) and some chocolate and some fruits for snack, but now I am very hungry and can't wait to have my dinner!

HOUR 11

Books: I've read a collection of short stories by Ray Bradbury, a little book of 80 pages. I don't like it very much, onestly.
And I read a super awesome comic "Papernovela e Topokolossal", drawn by Silvia Ziche. It was super funny! Like every Disney published comic!


Food: Panfried chicken! Oh yes, finally I had my dinner! But I am still hungry!

HOUR 22

Sleep: 8 hours! I need them!

Books: a collection of short stories by Sebastiano Vassalli

Food: My breakfast, with a book surely!



HOUR 24

Closing Survey 


Which hour was most daunting for you? The night hours...
Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? The whole Nancy Drew series.
Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? More Facebook!
What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? Everything is perfect.
How many books did you read? 4.
Which book did you enjoy most? "Dimentica il mio nome" by Zerocalcare.
Which did you enjoy least? The short stories of Bradbury.
How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? I will sure participate in the next readathon. It's a kind of family tradition for me.
What role would you be likely to take next time? Last time I made cheerleading, this time I dedicate myself to reading and it was perfect. I love the social part of readathon, but it tooks me a lot of time, perhaps I have to use some speedy social network like Instagram or Twitter...

Hello again, from your cheering team :) Escaping into a Nancy Drew world would be so fun, great choice! Also, I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your first book. Happy readathon!

Kirsten ha detto...

I've always loved Nancy Drew, excellent choice! It's getting later there, I hope you're keeping hydrated and caffeinated and moving around to keep the blood flowing and the pages turning! happy readathon!

Trish ha detto...

Yum, chicken sounds tasty. Something about readathon makes me extra hungry all day - snacks are required! That cover definitely makes the book sound as funny as you said it was. Happy readathon!

Stephanie ha detto...

I've never done a read a thon. I've always wanted to, but I usually lack the time, or the energy to do one. They looks fun. It would also be a good way for me to get through my enormous pile of books waiting to be read. I might only finish a few, but it would knock them off my to-read stack.

This sounds amazing! I absolutely have to get involved sometime - maybe when it's on during my school holidays =) Do you stockpile books and starve yourself of reading for a few days before you begin?? I feel like I'd have to save books to read so I wouldn't get burned out halfway through. Thanks for sharing - this is a great idea! -Ang (angel1985 on SwapBot for the October Blog Hop)

Thank you everybody for commenting my post. I really suggest to you to take part in the next Readathon in April.
I love starving myself with a pile of books to read :-)
