This is Kate from Kate’s Book Nook and I will be your cohost for the rest of the readathon! Are you excited??? I know I am! I want to start of with a brief explanation of how I will be setting up these posts for the FINAL FIVE HOURS!!!! Every hours, I am going to post a book related meme, video, and random fact. I think it adds a little bit of fun for these final few hours. In the lead up to the read-a-thon, I wrote a post including tips on how to get through these final few hours. You can check it out here, if you want to take a look on how to stay alert.
Let me introduce myself to you really quick. I am a rather odd mix of hobbies. I love German Soccer (specifically Bayern Munich) with a passion and will often force myself out of bed at 6:30 on a Saturday morning to watch their games. I am a cross stitching addict and currently have over 50 patterns started. I have also recently taken up crochet. I love tv and watch way too much of it (curse you Hulu). I have two part time jobs (math tutor and a subpoena records copier). I am also a cheese addict. I love cheese. During readathons, I allow myself to splurge and buy some of the more expensive cheeses as a treat. Now that you know a little bit more about me, I would love to know a little more about you! So please leave a comment and tell me some of your quirks and what makes you unique.
A big shout out to our cheerleaders!!! You guys have been fantastic! Next time we should have cheerleaders for our cheerleaders! But in all seriousness, thanks so much for cheering all of us readers on and cohosts on. You give us the strength to push past the weariness and keep reading! Goodness knows how much a “new comment” notice brightens up a persons day.
Video of the Hour:
Last readathon(and more recently, Andi in this readathon), I introduced you to The Lizzie Bennett Diaries. This month, they started a new series called Emma Approved. This one is a modern vlog retelling of Emma by Jane Austen. Only two videos are out, so it isn’t too late to start watching!
Random Fact of the Hour:
- In the novel Les Miserables, by Victor Hugo, you will find one of the longest sentences. It has a total of 823 words.
- Sherlock Holmes never said ‘Elementary, my dear Watson.’
