Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon: The Late Hours (23:00-4:30)
Well, for the first time ever, I gave up early on a read-a-thon! From 11:00 until perhaps 2:00 or so, I was reading The Girlfriend by R.L. Stine, and it was sufficiently scary and suspenseful to keep me awake. However, when I finished that one and switched ...

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon: The Busy/Grumpy Hours (11:00-23:00)
So, I ended up being out of the house for a lot of the daytime hours. I carried a book with me and read when I could. Over the last 12 hours all I read was the Spike Omnibus, which is 465 pages long. I chose that book for the busy hours because I figured th...

2016 Diversity on the Shelf Challenge

I'm happy to see someone's hosting this challenge again! This will be my third time participating. The first time made me realise that almost everything I read is by white people. The second time made me a little more aware of that and I did a bit better, but still way off balance.

2016 LGBTQIA Challenge
This reading challenge is for books that feature a main character who is LGBTQIA. This goes well with my ongoing efforts to diversify my reading. I'll be starting off easy with level Orange - 6-12 books. I'll list the books I read for this challenge below.

2016 NetGalley Reading Challenge
Now this is a challenge I really need to do! My NetGalley score is... not good. I've pretty much left it alone in the last year or so, but for a while I was requesting way too many books, not even realising that I'd never be able to read them all in time. M...
Now this is a challenge I really need to do! My NetGalley score is... not good. I've pretty much left it alone in the last year or so, but for a while I was requesting way too many books, not even realising that I'd never be able to read them all in time. Much the way I buy books, actually.

Happy read-a-thon day!!! I'll be updating sporadically throughout the day. I have a few places I have to be today (Alas, the whole world refuses to pause for the read-a-thon! What gives?), but I'll still be reading for the majority of the 24 hours. Behold, ...
