Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon coming soon!

Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon, hosted this year by Nymeth, Hannah, and Trish in honor of Dewey, is this Saturday! I’m planning on doing it; how about you? (For more info and to sign up as either a reader or a cheerleader, be sure to check the website!)

I do not plan on waking up at 6am (my time) to start the read-a-thon on “time,” and neither am I going to stay up the whole 24 hours. I think that’d mess up my schedule too much, and I have school to think about (unfortunately). However, I am planning on stay up ’til at least 2-4AM, and I figure that’ll be a big enough feat considering how tired I am just thinking about it now. Ha!

I don’t have a list of books planned, but I think I’m going to mostly stick with manga/graphic novels and shorty YA books. I’ll be posting about my progress both on here and on my Twitter, so be sure to check back on Saturday if you’re interested! Should be a lot of fun.

(The Twitter hashtag for the read-a-thon is #readathon, if you’d like to keep track of what everyone else is doing on Twitter. And if you’re not sure what to read yourself, Eva has a nice post designed to help you out: Books to Keep You Up At Night.)

  1. I’ll be reading! It starts in my afternoon, so I can get right on it, but I bet I’ll be falling asleep before everyone else (and waking up while everyone else is asleep!).

    1. I’m sure there’ll be others in your situation! And anyway, if you’re awake when I’m asleep, then you can catch up on all the posts and Tweets without having more dumped on you simultaneously! (Er, if that makes sense.)

  2. I have to get up at 6AM too. *sigh* I’ll do it, though, for the read-a-thon! I completely sympathise about being in school, though, that’s why I couldn’t do the 3rd read-a-thon.

  3. I’m on the east coast so I’m lucky in that I get to wake up at 8 am to start the readathon. Of course, the flip side of that is the later I start, the later I have to stay awake until. So I “loose out” at the other end! Ha, ha.

    Still, I’m pretty excited. Only one more day to go!
