I've signed up for Dewey's Read-a-Thon for the first time! Though I'll not be able to read for 24 hours straight, I'll be doing my best to read, visit other blogs, do a mini challenge or two, etc. The reading event begins Saturday, Oct. 22. The start time here in Ohio is 8 a.m. For start times all around the globe, click start times.
Here's some info re Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon: "For 24 hours, we read books, post to our blogs about our reading, and visit other readers’ blogs. We also participate in mini-challenges throughout the day. It happens twice a year, in April and in October.
It was created by the beloved Dewey. The first one was held in October 2007. Dewey died in late 2008. We’re still saddened by her absence, but the show must go on. The read-a-thon was renamed to honor its founder in 2009. Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon is hosted by Trish and Shesten with help from volunteers."
Wish me luck!
