Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon

Check it out (Here)

The time has come to start reading!!!!
Goal is to read as many as I can and review them in the next week. 

This time I didn't make a long TBR as I think that was my issue last time with not reading as much. 

Reading/read list
I'm grabbing them on a case by case basis. 

1st Book
Opening Survey
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? I'm in normally Sunny Northern California but hoping we get a rainy day perfect for reading. 
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? I didn't make a stack of books this round as I struggled last round with my pile. 
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? I'm kind of obsessed with this crispy chickpeas at the moment. 
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I'm a little bit of a video game nerd. I play off and on with my husband and a bunch of friends. Currently, I'm playing ARK and Smite off and on with a little Guitar hero tossed into the mix. 
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? The last few I've always had a stack and about halfway in I find myself not loving my book options. This time I didn't make a stack and will be grabbing reading options based on my mood. 

Decided to get a early start and do all the mini challenges in hour 3 before I start my 2nd book. 
A bunch of these are Instagram worth so expect to see these shared throughout the read-a-thon. 

Book & Snack 
Hosted @ The Book Monster 
My snack is quickly becoming one of my favorite Fruit Macaroons. Perfectly healthy snack to go with my water. Got to stay hydrated today. 
I combined it with my current read a comic which is kind of a short story. 

Anthology of Interest
Hosted @ Purple Owl Reviews 
This one is tough. I think it would be fun to an anthology of book bloggers finding hapI don't read many anthologies, to be honest. However, I think it would be fun to an anthology of book bloggers finding happy ever afters. I've been on a romance kick lately and who doesn't love book bloggers. I could see a bunch of quick short happy ever afters about book bloggers. They could be super nerdy bookish girls.

Tell Me a Story 
Hosted @ Running "N" Reading 
I sadly don't read a lot of short stories. I wish I did but I do have this one on my kindle that I'm hoping to get to in the near future. Would a comic book count as a short story? I mean they are short and quick reads. I combined it with Book & Snack since they go so well together. 

Artful Covers 
Hosted @ Carol's Notebook 

Reading Alphabet 
Hosted @ Just Katherine 
T - The Inheritance by Mika Lane - Finished 

Pen Pal Mini Challenge 
Hosted @ Just One More Thing 
This is a hard one.....I'm not a great pen pal, to be honest, but If I had to choose I would love to have Mercy Thompson from Patricia Briggs books. She's a coyote skinwalker and her days would be interesting. I bet we could swap cookie recipes. 

Bookish Scribbles
Hosted @ Mercling.Reads
Using #readathonscribbles 

Perfect Pairing
Hosted @ Reading Women

Can you guess which book this is?
