Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon

Today is all about the books..... well almost.

It is World Book and Copyright Day - and 2PM my time, the Dewey's 24 Readathon starts.

The "almost" is due to two of my family members having a birthday party - so book will be resting in the bag while I am at the party - reading will be done getting to and from the party as it involves transportation time of total 4 hours in trains, bus and taxi.

A lot of the other participants have posted pictures on Facebook of more books than most will be able to finish during the 24 hours ("we want options") and likewise posted the large amount of snacks and beverage and some even excel spread sheets - they make it sound more like a competion.

For me the readathon is to dedicate 24 hours to reading (or as much that I can muster with a birthday party and some sleep) - doing something I enjoy and knowing that other book lovers do what they enjoy: reading.

I have 4 books only in my pile, as thought that to be the most realistic for me.

The Templar Legacy by Steve Berry
I actually started reading this at the last readathon, but did not finish it before the 24 hours ended - somehow I never got around to finish it, so now is the time.

Et sted som ingen ser by Marianne Gade
In Danish - my native tongue/language. The March selected by my bookfriend

A Summer At Sea by Katie Fforde

Avdeling 73 by Sofie Saranbrant
To be read in the original language: Swedish. My hope is merely to get started reading this book.
