Now it is time to start the readathon and I’m just going to answer the questions from the Hour 0 post att Dewey’s.

Pages read: 0
Total amout of books opened: 0
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
I’m reading from Sweden, so here the starttime is 2 pm!
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I really look forward to read Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, so this is the book I will start with. I also look forward to finish Insurgent which is the book I been reading a while back.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
Oh, I just came home from the store where I bought some snacks. I really look forward to my cashews and I also bought bacon to be able to make a BLT, we’ll see if I have time for that. I stocked up on a lot of food that is easy to make, like instant noodles and such. Also I will probably order pizza at some point.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
My name is Matilda, but you can call me Foxears which is my name online. I am a 26 year old university student doing my Masters in Engineering. Because of my studies I usually don’t have much time for reading which is why I love that I can get some reading done for 24 hours in a wonderful community atmosphere.
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 have been living 2 years in China and the last time I participated was April 2012 from my dorm in Beijing. It is nice that I will not read from 8pm to 8pm again, but have earlier hours, and also that I have an apartment of my own instead of getting yelled at by the cleaning lady for moving a comfy chair into the computer room. I will try to drink more water, and save my coke for when I get tired so I don’t feel so sloshy, but to compensate I bought mostly healthy snacks like olives, cashews and fruit.
