Dewey's Readathon April 2012 — Summary

I almost fell asleep during hour 23, but I made it! I spent about 17 of the last 24 hours reading. In that time I finished seven books:

  1. The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan
  2. The Yellow Arrow by Victor Pelevin
  3. Swerve by Stephen Greenblat
  4. Snakes and Earrings by Hitomi Kanehara
  5. The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta
  6. Doubt by John Patrick Shanley
  7. Lucifer at the Starlite by Kim Addonizio

In addition, I also read but did not finish Witches Incorporated by K. E. Mills.

In total, I read 1,159 pages.

The Lover's Dictionary was my favorite read during the readathon, but The Leftovers and Swerve were close behind. The Yellow Arrow was the most disappointing of the books I read.

Congratulations to all the readers. Thank you to the cheerleaders and the organizers.
