Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon

     I'm totally excited that it's almost time for this year's Dewey 24 Hour Readathon! I've been preparing by cramming as much reading in as possible over the last few weeks.  The Readathon is taking Place on Saturday, April 9, 2011, and is starting at 8 am in my area.  Last year I participated but struggled to really get as much read because I had other things planned.  This year I'm totally focused on my reading and so far my only excursion is a trip to the gym while I'm reading.

     There's all sorts of fun things to do and get involved in during the readathon.  There are blogs, tweets, and mini challenges.  Already there are about 370 people signed up.  You can sign up as well at  I got up early last year but only made it until 2am.  I'm hopeful that this year I'll make it further than that.  I'm planning on stocking up on some good snacks to keep me going tomorrow as well as having plenty of caffeinated drinks.  I'll be definitely be participating in the mini-challenges again and maybe I can win some more cool stuff again.  Last year I won two books, wooo hooo!

Here is my list of possible reads that I'm going to try to work from.  I know I may not get to all of them but I'm going to make my best effort.

  1. Glad to see you on the read-a-thon! I'll try to come visit you and cheer you on!

  2. Thanks! I'll need it if I'm still able to participate. Things have been pretty crazy this week. Hopefully I'll find a way to still do it.
