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. There’s a lot of information on that blog, so make sure to click around. With over 900 readers participating, you know this event is going to be huge. Rest assured, if it’s 7AM Central Time, October 18 – 7AM Central Time, October 19, I will be reading. Okay, I might be sleeping at some point, but I will mostly be reading.
This reading event comes with more than just books. It comes with snacks. It comes with taking a break for dance parties in the comfort of your home (or favorite coffee shop, I don’t judge). It comes with Twitter chats. It comes with mini-challenges. It comes with reading updates.
I have a lot I want to accomplish this time around, but mostly I hope to be reading. I’m always in favor of spending most of my time reading during a readathon… you know, because that just makes sense. But this is a special kind of event, so I’m sure I’ll make some times for Twitter chatting, updates, and mini-challenges along the way. With that in mind…
My Readathon List:
1. What I Know For Sure by Oprah Winfrey
2. See Now Then by Jamaica Kincaid

I’m certain I won’t get through all of these reads, but I’ll be happy with 4 or 5. I wanted to break it up a bit this time around with some categories so I had a nice collection to work from. We have…
The Youths (YA/Children’s Lit)
The Power Women (Non-Fiction)
The (Mostly) Fictions
Find me on Twitter (@lostgenreader) for random updates and shenanigans.
Happy reading to all participants!
