And here we are! The 24 in 48 Readathon! I am going to try to read 24 hours in the course of this weekend. I can’t wait! I want to read! But first the Hour Zero Intro survey:
Where are you from, where are you now, and what’s the furthest from home you traveled in the past year?
I am from the Netherlands. Right now I am with at the house of my boyfriend. The furthest I traveled this year is to London I think. I don’t travel so far when it is not summer (And not so much in the summer also).
Have you done 24in48 before? How many times?! If it’s your first time with us, where did you hear about 24in48?
I have participated before. I haven’t won before. I think I have participated two or three times.
Are you readathon-ing alone? If not, who are you doing 24in48 with?
No one is participating with me. However I am at the house of my boyfriend, so I have family, a cat and a lovely boyfriend who are keeping me company some parts of the day.
What book are you kicking 24in48 off with?
The House of Hades by Rick Riordan! I want to begin! Let me begin!
What’s your Hogwarts house?
Hufflepuff! But I am actually really a Huffleclaw, or a Ravenpuff.
Remind us where to find you online this weekend:
Here! On my blog mostly.
And that was it! Off to reading!
And we are already three hours in. How is it possible? The time is going so fast! I like reading The House of Hades! It is really amazing. Exactly what I was expecting (maybe because I have already read this book in the past).
Now it is time to wake up my boyfriend. Try to make him make breakfast for me and maybe grab a cup of coffee. If you are also participating, how are you doing? Is your readathon going okay?
Six hours. We are six hours in the readathon. It is amazing how fast the time goes. Really. In the mean time I have done a run (also, I couldn’t get my boyfriend to make breakfast. Hopefully it works for lunch). I have listened to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban while running. Therefore I made a switch from The House of Hades by Rick Riordan to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. But that is okay. It was nice to switch and it was nice to listen instead of to stare into a book. After lunch I will go back to The House of Hades presumably.
And as it is now hour 6 there is a challenge! The challenge is to post the best first line from the books I am planning to read this weekend. I chose for the next line:
“During the third attack, Hazel almost ate a builder” – Rick Riordan, The House of Hades
The books by Rick Riordan are so funny. Even this first sentence is funny. It made me think: ‘Wait…. What?’ Okay. Now off to some more reading and pushing my boyfriend to make me lunch.
