IT’S HERE! IT’S HERE! THE READATHON!
I am so excited to tell you Dewey’s 24 Hour Read A Thon is tomorrow! It kinda snuck up on me this year but I am really going to try and make a few hours before, durning and at the end of my busy day.
On April 6th the Challenge of reading ALL DAY long starts. During the bi-annual read-a-thon we will read books, post to our blogs, Facebook and Twitter about our reading, and visit other readers’ blogs. We will also participate in mini-challenges throughout the day to win prizes. (I love that part!) There will be a mini challenges here you can dip in and out of all day. (It’s going to be a hard one!!!) A great hourly challenge on Instagram! Good times in the Facebook and Goodreads communities! This event happens twice a year, in April and in October. It was created by Dewey. The first one was held in October 2007. Dewey died in late 2008. The read-a-thon was renamed to honor its founder in 2009.
On April 6, 2019 the Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon will start at 5am for Los Angeles. If you want to learn more or sign up, click on the links or the button above. There is no money involved and it’s purely for the love of reading.
If this is your first time, go to Mocha Girl Alexis’s blog Reflections of a Bookaholic after you sign up to get a few helpful tips. I hope you all will be able to participate and join the fun. And ladies remember to have plenty of water and snacks. Oh by the way, you can read anything!
Here is a simple-to-read time zone list.
ARE YOU GOING TO JOIN THE READ A THON? WHAT IS ON YOUR READING LIST FOR THE DAY?
I think for this Read-a-Thon I’ll read:
The One Year Bible. I am a week behind and need to get caught up. Right now I’m on Deuteronomy 3 and I need to be at the end of Deuteronomy 28.
The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin (audiobook & paperback). Book club book of the month that I just started today.
What are you reading for the read-a-thon? Got your snacks?
