About Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon
Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon is here! Starting Saturday April 26, 2014 at 8am EST and ending Sunday, April 27, 2014 at 8am. Unlike our college all-nighters, reading textbooks, during Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon, we read that we want! In addition to the sheer adrenaline rush of attempting the impossible, the 24 hour readathon also offers mini challenges and the fun of meeting hundreds of other book lovers from all over the world! Last year I was a cheerleader and reader. I loved cheering other readers on towards reaching their goals, seeing the snacks they used to fuel their reading, and getting some good book recommendations. I think I even won a couple prizes!

This year, I am going to concentrate on just reading. I know I can’t read for the full 24 hours but I will read as much as I can, and include reading with the kids in my reading time to help me reach my book bucket list goal of reading 1,000 books with them.
My reading list:
(links to Goodreads)
1. Blown Circuit by Lars Guinard (audiobook) for upcoming blog tour.
2. Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon for my Around the World in 80 Books Reading Challenge – Spain.
3. Read 5 books with the kids.
4. Participate in mini-challenges if possible.
5. Meet 10 new-to-me bloggers.
Dewey’s 24 hour readathon is a lot of fun and a chance to meet so many book lovers, it’s like a big online book club! Join me and the over 600 other participants signed up! Don’t forget to stop by as I update my progress and accomplishments.
I love book blogging events. If you love Dewey’s, I highly recommend signing up for Armchair BEA and being a commenting cheerleader. We need a few good book lovers to cheer on our participants in another fantastic book blogging event coming soon at the end of May!
What’s on your reading list? If you are participating in the 24 hour readathon, leave me a link to your goals/accomplishments posts and I’ll be sure to stop by! When’s the last time you stayed up all night?
