Dewey’s Read-a-Thon | Opening Meme

It’s the last hour before the Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon begins and to past this time, the lovely people hosting this read-a-thon posted an opening meme. If you have time in your hands this weekend you should check out and participate here!

Kyoto Golden Temple Kinkakuji Japan

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

I am from Finland.

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

This is a hard question. I think Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore or one of the graphic novels, Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. Bitterblue because I loved the first book Graceling and even though the second book wasn’t as good as the first one, I still want to see what happens next. I picked Persepolis because I haven’t really read many graphic novels before and I have seen many people talk about this so I decided to give it a go.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?


4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

I love reading! That didn’t come as a surprise though, I think. What else? I’m at the moment in university, studying international business and actually two months ago I came back from Japan where I was doing my exchange year.

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?

I didn’t participate last time, I am rather new in the book blogging/vlogging community, so I didn’t know about this read-a-thon before. I am most looking forward to meeting new people, discussing about books and of course all the reading I’ll be doing!

  1. I’ve discovered on Twitter that it was your first read-a-thon (it’s only my second one) so I’ve decided to come and say hello 🙂

    I’ve really liked Persépolis and also Maus. I’ve seen in your stack The Bell Jar, a book I love very much even if I wouldn’t have chosen it for a read-a-thon but we are all different.

    I wish you a good time! The read-a-thon is such a good way to discover people and a perfect excuse to hang out on Twitter 😉


    • Hi! I think I’ll be reading The Bell Jar last so that I don’t have to hurry with it because of the read-a-thon. I hope you have a good time too! It was so nice of you to come and say hello 🙂


  2. Oh, that’s a gorgeous photo. Japan must be beautiful – one of the girls I used to go to uni with has been there for about 2 years now and I know she loves it.

    Anyway, I hope you’ve had a great readathon so far and you’re enjoying your books! 🙂
