Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon

dewey-300x300

Welcome to Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon! This event is hosted by some pretty fabulous ladies. Read more about them and the event by clicking here. Also, make sure to click around the site to get an idea of how big this event really is, because with over 600 readers participating, you know it’s going to be huge. Rest assured, if it’s 7AM Central Time, April 26 – 7AM Central Time, April 27, I will be reading. Okay, I might be sleeping at some point, but I will mostly be reading.

I’m always torn with reading events. I want to keep up with all the Twitter chatter and comment on ALL THE BLOGS and write ALL THE UPDATES, but then I also just want to disappear and, you know, READ. I’m sure many find themselves on this struggle bus with me. Typically, I do what I can with Twitter and leave the big updates for later, if at all. For me, readathons are mostly about getting caught up on books that have been sitting on my shelves for too long, or books that I just can’t wait to read.

That being said, I hope to do more with this readathon than my typical participation. As I already wrote, there are over 600 readers, but on top of that there are also dedicated cheerleaders. They split up into groups and take time throughout the event to cheer on those who are reading, and that’s pretty damn awesome. I’m new to this event, so I don’t know exactly how it will all pan out, but I’m confident it will be a great time regardless.

There will be books. There will be coffee. There will be “Rains of Castamere” playing during dramatic interludes. There will be snacks. There will be readathon.

My Readathon List:
1. Paper Towns by John Green
2. Nocturnes by Kazuo Ishiguro
3. The Hours by Michael Cunningham
4. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling
5. In Between the Sheets by Ian McEwan
6. Stardust by Neil Gaiman

  1. Great book choices! I enjoyed both Nocturnes and Mindy Kaling’s book. I almost picked up An Abundance of Katherines by John Green to add to my stack, but then went and picked the shortest books on the shelves! lol I will see if I have time near the end to add it on.
