Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon Closing Survey

How would you assess your reading overall?

I read a lot more than I expected! I got a bingo (3 across). I commented in the GoodReads group too.
Did you have a strategy, and if so, did you stick to it? 
I had two books planned: 

The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo 
Haroun & the Sea of Stories (reread) by Salman Rushdie

I read those and three other books: 
The Drawing of the Dark by Tim Powers
The Tragical Comedy or Comical Tragedy of Mr. Punch (graphic novel) by Neil Gaiman & Dave McKean (reread)
Ajax by Sophocles 
The Tragical Comedy or Comical Tragedy of Mr. Punch by Neil Gaiman (graphic novel) (reread)
Ajax  by Sophocles 
The Drawing of the Dark by Tim Powers I had checked this out but wasn’t sure when I would read it... nowhere near as good as Declare, but I will say more about that when I review it.

What was your favorite snack?
Black licorice, I think. I had black tea (Yorkshire Red and looseleaf Lapsang Souchong) and when it was too late for caffeine I had hibiscus tea. 

I will start writing my reviews… see you next Readathon

This blog is for my thoughts on reading. A couple of my friends on GoodReads have blogs, so eventually I decided to start one myself. I hope to get involved in the book blogging community and become a better reader and writer! I am not accepting copies of new books for review, but I would be interested in new editions or new translations of classic authors. Find me on Upwork (as an editor) in the profile link. From September 2018 to October 2020 I blogged at Blogger.
