I got a bit frustrated, because my reading speed is still much slower with English texts, than with German ones. I never realised that but today i could compare both directly. Maybe the slowness is also caused by the fact that I'm starting to get tired ;) But I will fight!


I just decided to read a book that I didn't put on my tbr list - Moriarty by Anthony Horowitz. It's been lying around in my house for quite a while now. In fact, my boyfriend gave it to me right after it was published, but I never touched it, cause I didn't want it to be finished :D Silly, I know. But is there a better occasion to read it than readathon!?

DEWEY’S READ-A-THON 2015 - Update 1

Yay, I just finished my first book (The Old Child by Jenny Erpenbeck) for today. I am not too sure what to think about it yet, but there will be enough time for reflecting AFTER readathon :)

I'm going to have a wee snack now and then quickly start the next book.


1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today.
I'm in Germany today.

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?I can't decide. They all seem to be brilliant ;)

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?I made savory muffins, which are hopefully delicious. 

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!Is it redundant to say that I love to read? ;) I also enjoy films and recently discovered sewing (a few years I'd never thought I'd go near any form of crafting). And I have a weakness for logical arguments :D

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today?I try to not get lost in social media today and concentrate more on reading ;)


This is my 2nd readathon. I am in Germany at the moment, so for me it starts at 2pm. My books are picked, I got a good sleep and I'm well stucked with goodies!

I'll start with a German book, as I recently realised that I haven't read a book in my native language in about 3 years. The Novella Die Geschichte vom alten Kind (The Old Child) by Jenny Erpenbeck is relatively short, so I hope I can start the next book in about two hours.

Enjoy the readathon!

So I finally did it... Here you'll find my thoughts on films, books and other silly stuff that occupies my wee brain... nothing more, nothing less. I'm a sucker for a good discussion, so feel free to throw in your opinion.
