Let's Do the Readathon Again!

I would be a very bad book blogging friend indeed if I didn't make sure you were going to the coolest book event of the fall tomorrow. Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon kicks off tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. in my neck of the woods. It will be my third time taking part in this awesome event.

What is this readathon, you ask? Well, almost 400 readers have signed up to read for 24 hours (or as close to that as they can get). You can post on your blog or on twitter with your updates on what books you are reading, how many pages you have read, and what delicious snacks you are munching on. There are also hourly check-ins on the 24 Hour Readathon website. These check-ins encourage you to keep reading, provide fun questions for you to answer, and send you off to do mini-challenges to give you a little break from all of those pages. Did I mention there are prizes for the challenges?

So...if you are planning to read tomorrow, let me know what you are going to be reading in the comments. I will be starting with these guys:

           The Lifeboat   Let's Take the Long Way Home: A Memoir of Friendship   Double Blind: A Novel

 If you haven't signed up yet, get thee to the website! It's a ton of fun and there is really no pressure. You can read as much or as little as you like. See you tomorrow at the Readathon!


  1. Omg omg omg! So excited! Seriously, I almost can't stand myself because it's all I'm talking/thinking about :)

    I'm so super glad you're doing the READATHON :)

    1. Haha, I'm going to take some of your enthusiasm for my own. I'm sitting here thinking "Ok, what can I get David to do for an hour or two so I can read more books tomorrow?!?"

  2. I've never done one of these readathons and don't know if I ever will. I have a thing about picking up a book as soon as I've finished one and think that might hinder me from successfully completing it. I broke my rule of one book at a time this past week and didn't feel great about it so perhaps I'll just sit on the sidelines and cheer you guys one. Good luck!!!! & have fun :)

    1. I understand the pause between books. I don't think I've actually read for the full 24 hours yet. I usually end up taking care of the little guy and having some other plans. I think last time around I finished up a book I was already reading and read one more.
      Thanks for the cheering! :)
