It’s Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon time again!!! It’s my 7th readathon but the first time I’ll have company. I have roped my boyfriend in to be my butler (and he’s going to be doing some reading too). You can send him encouraging “make Ellie a coffee” messages on Twitter.

I seem to have a Perma-Cold since I started my new job, so hopefully that won’t hamper my reading too much. There will definitely be some sleep involved. I did so well last time, read one more book than normal so I’ve chosen another one with pictures in this time round. Plus one book I’m dying to read and 3 fairly short YA novels. Though really, if I finish two I will be more than happy in my current state.

Josh is planning on finishing A Tale of Two Cities.

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

Bournemouth, England (not so fine, rather dark and damp at the mo).

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

The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon – SQUEE!

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

Josh baked me scones! And they smell really good so I’ll be looking forward to tucking into them fairly early on.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

I always feel I should put something different here each time.
I’m possibly addicted to fennel seeds (I ran out last week and all the shops were out of stock, it was stressful). I put them in everything.

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today?

Possibly hacking my lungs up… on a brighter note, having someone to talk to now and then.
