Running Post for Hours 1-4

Hour 1:

Introductory Questionnaire

 
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? I am in central California (which sucks). It is 5 am here and I am NOT a morning person!!!
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? All of them. I seriously have no clue where to start. Maybe Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side?
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? I made these revel bars and they are so delicious. I haven’t made them in years, but they are so good!!!
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I am a German soccer addict. I watch it several times a week. Unfortunately, I sometimes let it cut into my reading time. I also love to cross stitch. Sometimes I will put on an audiobook and just stitch away for hours.
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 am cohosting this time, and so that will be different. Also, I am going to just do one post for every four hours instead of doing a post every hour.

Hour 2:

Reading in Translation Mini-Challenge:

  • On your blog (could be in your read-a-thon update post, for example):
    1. If you could read any book that’s been translated into English in its ORIGINAL language, what would it be? Anna Karenina (honestly, I don’t really read books that weren’t originally written in English). I prefer YA and I haven’t soon too many non-English YA books.
    2. Include the original book’s cover if possible; if you want, also post the English cover for comparison. 
    3. Optional imaginary bonus points: post a sentence from the book in its original language. Левин хотел сказать брату о своем намерении жениться и спросить его совета, он даже твердо решился на это; но когда он увидел брата, послушал его разговора с профессором, когда услыхал потом этот невольно покровительственный тон, с которым брат расспрашивал его о хозяйственных делах (материнское имение их было неделенное, и Левин заведовал обеими частями), Левин почувствовал, что не может почему-то начать говорить с братом о своем решении жениться. Он чувствовал, что брат его не так, как ему бы хотелось, посмотрит на это.
