Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon

DeweyLogo.jpg

That’s right. This year, I am participating!

I wanted to in April, but by the time I got around to it… I missed the readathon by a week. Grah! I’ve had this bookmarked for months.

So yes. I am going to try this year. My goal will definitely NOT be to read all 24 hours. I mean, I got a kid around here. I have homework. I have a crazy (but adorable) boyfriend. You get the picture.

But. I am going to try to read as much as I can. My goal is simple: finish 1 book and read as much as I can. I haven’t figured out what book that will be; it will depend on what I’m reading by the time the readathon starts.

For me, living in Las Vegas, the readathon starts at 5 AM. Will I be up that early? Hell no. But it ends at 4:59 AM on the 23rd. So will I stay up late to read more? You betcha.

I haven’t decided on how I will update my reading. I’m thinking I will do Twitter and updates on the blog: this post, right here. So keep my post open on a tab all day long. How often will I update? No clue! Hopefully, once every hour. Just don’t hold me to that.

If you’re joining in: be sure to let me know. I’d love to cheer you on!
