Hour 36 Check-In + Prize Winner

Twelve hours left to go, and you guys are going strong!! Some of you in other timezones or on different schedules are already done and I’m so impressed with the bookishness that’s happening. You’re all amazing readers.

It’s lunch time here in NYC, and I’ve got a wonderful cold spicy peanut chicken soba salad to snack on. Perfect for this hot summer day.

You know what else is perfect for a hot summer day? MORE BOOKS! (Duh. What did you think I was going to say?) Lots of you posted your answers to my scary, freezer book question, and I thank you. Now I know which books to avoid ;). Without further ado, the winner of the Hour 24 giveaway is:

Kacie from Kacie’s Bookshelf!!

Keep an eye out for an email from me soon.

And just like last time, I’ve got another prize pack to give away!!

Gulp by Mary Roach
Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan
The Republic of Imagination by Azar Nafisi
The Last Bookaneer by Matthew Pearl
The Merman by Carl-Johan Vallgren

To win this pack, leave a comment and tell me the best book you’ve read during the readathon. I’ll select a winner at the finish line at Hour 48.

Happy reading!

  1. Hands down my favourite book has been Shotgun Lovesongs by Nickolas Butler. I almost wish I hadn’t picked it for the readathon because I felt like I never wanted it to end but it’s ok, because I’ll definitely be reading it again soon 🙂

    Oh my gosh, I’m so excited! Thanks for doing the giveaways! 😀 You just made my day! My favorite I’ve read so far is Another Day by David Levithan!


  3. Well this is an easy one for me considering I’ve only read one book so far — Dallas Noir. It’s a nice collection of short stories about crime in the Dallas area.

    The second one I read was Pretty Face by Mary Hogan. I really enjoyed it. I like that it was an overweight character in a young adult novel. That doesn’t happen too often. I also like that the writer went into detail about where the girl was vacationing (Italy). It was very nicely done.

    I really liked Cinder by Marissa Meyer. But I”m liking Pathfinder too. The conversations between 2 14 year old boys is very entertaining.


  6. I have no idea if this is still open, but I’m going to comment anyway! The best book I read was ‘Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime’ by Oscar Wilde (it was the first one I read too!). It made me laugh so much at how ridiculous humans are sometimes – if we are told something might happen we worry about it and let it rule our lives, and go out of our way to make it happen. But if we just left it alone it might not have happened at all (I don’t know if that makes sense). Anyway, Wilde knew what he was talking about!
