Dewey's Read-a-Thon - April 21st, 2012


It's that time again! While most of the book bloggers are long-time veterans, I have been so out of touch for the past two years (two new babies and what not), that I'm a little bit nervous going into this 'reading challenge' I will probably not be able to read for 24 hours with or without breaks but it's always worth a try.

Here's the lowdown for those of you who'd like to join:

What is 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 (her blog has since been taken down, so the link won’t work). 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.
To sign up and find out more about this fun event, visit the Read-a-Thon website.

I don't yet have a list of books I'd like to read but I'm pretty sure they will all be review copies I'm in great need to read and review.

Good luck to all and happy reading!
