Dewey's 24 hour Read-a-thon - Picks, Progress and Challenges


I was'nt quite sure if I'll participate in this read-a-thon (because it's just week before my exams start and so on) but I decided I will. I ended up ill and I have nothing better to do than read in my bed. So here I am, participating for the first time in Dewey's Read-a-thon. I decided to make it bilingual post so my Czech readers could enjoy it as well.  (Netušila jsem, jestli se budu účastnit, protože mě čeká zápočták... Ale jsem nemocná, takže budu číst.)

I'll try to update it as much as possible. You can find my reading progress here as well as my reading goals and some funny challenges. (Budu se snažit updatovat co nejčastěji. Najdete tu, jak jsem v čtení pokročila, moje cíle a challenge).

Here are my optional picks for this read-a-thon (Co budu číst):

My reading progress (Jak jsem pokročila): 

• 14: 00 - Read-a-thon just started. I am making progress with Flame by Amy Kathleen Ryan.
• 14:49 - Read 60 pages of Flame. Making this post and challenge no 1.
• 15:15 - 17:12 - Entered some challenges
• 17:58 - Finished Flame by Amy Kathleen Ryan. Time for break.
• 21:25 Started Vampire's Assistant
• 22:02 - Break
• 0:20 - Started Requiem by Jamie McGuire.
• 1:10 - Read 1 chapter from Shifting Fate by Melissa Wright.
• 10:05 - Starting Vampire's Assistant


Hour 0 - Opening meme

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

I am from Czech Republic, small European country. Heard about it?

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

Probably Flame by Amy Kathleen Ryan. It's my favourite book series set in space and I can't wait to meet my favourite characters again.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

Probably banana. I love bananas.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

Well, I am very lazy person. I study Literature and Media at Uni and it's one more year to get my bachelor degree. I love speaking and reading in English, probably more than reading in my native language (isn't it sad?). 

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'll just relax and I won't push myself to some heroic heights. My own slow pace is just fine.

Hour 2 - Classic words of wisdom (Author)


I decided to pick quote from my most favourite classic I've ever read. It's from The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscard Wild. I don't know why this one. It just speaks to me, you know? I was always worried to live my life deeply with passion and this quote just reminds me that I should do it because life is just a moment which is gone forever. There might not be another chance ever. So we have to try to live hardest we can and maybe we achieve our dreams. It's quite simple.

Hour 7 - Treasure Hint (Author)

1. Tree

I've chosen Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater.

2. Snow

Queen of the damned by Anne Rice

3. Weapon

Renji is holding his katana, so I think I can count it as weapon.
