Dewey Readathon on Saturday

I've never done the 24-hour Dewey Readathon before (in fact I've done exactly one readathon ever), but I figure it will be fun to try it out.  I already know that I have other stuff I have to do on Saturday, so it certainly won't be any 24 hours of reading, but I'll read as much as I can and not worry about it.  This is a getting-my-toes-wet readathon.

What I'm supposed to do is start reading at 5am on Saturday morning and, for the next 24 hours, have my nose in a book as much as possible.  I'm supposed to post updates every so often (I figure 3 times is more than enough).  Apparently there are prizes and mini-challenges, but that is probably too advanced for me.

I have lots of great books to read, so no problem there.  Anyone else doing this?  I know I've seen lots of people talking about it, but I'm signing up at the last second.


  1. I hope you enjoy the readathon! It sounds like you're going into it with just the right attitude. I love this one but haven't been able to participate for a couple of years. I love Mill on the Floss. Enjoy!

  2. This is my first Read-a-thon as well, and toes wet will be about my devotion level. It just sounded like so much fun, who could resist?

  3. Hi Jean

    How are doing? Still reading? Keep on busting books!

  4. Welcome to Dewey's Readathon! So glad you signed up. I'm not doing much reading this year because I have a lot going on today, but I signed up as a Cheerleader so I can at least stay involved. Hope the reading is going well for you.

  5. Still with us Jean? Hour fifteen. Get some air, get some coffee - tea if you really have to! And then get back to the books. You are doing well!

  6. Happy readathon from your friendly neighborhood cheerleader! Hope you're having a great time, keep it up!

  7. Thanks, cheerleader people! I appreciate you showing up! :) I'm still reading.

  8. Hope you've been enjoying your reading today!

  9. Still going? I'm about to turn in for the night with book in hand. Hope you had a great day!
