Dewey’s 24hr readathon April 2021 kick-off

It’s been since 2014 since I joined Dewey’s readathon last, but I’m back baby! I decided to dive in last minute, have a flare-up of sinusitis, and I accidentally got myself locked out of my website a bit from the get-go. So an excellent start!

As per tradition, first the opening survey:
  • What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
  • The Netherlands! The Hague area.

  • Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
  • Anne of Green Gables – I hadn’t actually read it past a few chapters.

  • Which snack are you most looking forward to?
  • I am shielding in place – still, yes. It’s been over a year – and didn’t plan this weekend ahead and get groceries delivered every fortnight. So it’s what is already in my house. I currently have a chicken/beef broth noodle soup with pork belly batons brewing. It’s loaded with green beans, bean sprouts, green onions and egg noodles. Topped with some chili, of course. Hopefully it’ll help with the sinusitis, not worsen it =’)

  • Tell us a little something about yourself!
  • I’m 33, live with my British partner, planning to move (back) to Wales as soon as they’ll let us. I have a tiny feline pride consisting of 2 black cats, Guinness and Darwin. Before the pandemic hit I volunteered at the local library, library café, and do proofreading for my partner’s scientific papers and such.

  • If you participated in the last readathon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first readathon, what are you most looking forward to?
  • I haven’t participated since 2014, and I feel that’s partially because me overdoing readathon (and the rest on my life) contributed to me getting a burn-out. So don’t do too much, enjoy, and get some rest when you need it, you’re not a teen anymore, Cy-V. I will probably aim to focus on the reading more over the challenges, even though I love them.
    I WAS also hoping to read more than I added to my TBR pile via seeing other people’s recommendations, but that’s already a lost cause at time of writing.
    Join the fun!

      • It was indeed amazing! Highly recommend, it’s very forgiving and I make it with all frozen veg and meats I prepare earlier.
        And thank you, you too!
