Oh it’s On! Dewey’s Readathon


April 21, 2012 by Heidi

So…I was debating about whether or not I officially wanted to participate in my first Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon today or not.  I was thinking, I’ll hit in in October.  Then I woke up this morning at about 9:30 (because I am not one to get up for an 8:00 am start time when I don’t really have to) and looked outside.  It’s grey, thinking of raining, and I really have nowhere to go, so sign up I did!

Here’s the scary stack of potential candidates:

April Dewey Readathon Stack for Bunbury in the Stacks

But most likely I will be:

  1. Reading some short stories from Faery Tales and Nightmares by Melissa Marr.
  2. Reading Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood.
  3. Reading I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella.

I don’t read super fast, so it’s unlikely that I’ll get through more than one entire book today.  I am in the middle of Code Name Verity, but decided it’s important to me to take my time with that one and appreciate it properly, so I will be putting off finishing it until after the readathon.

Good luck to the other participants, I’m excited to see how everyone’s day goes!

    I REALLY wanted to do this with you but I work today and just knew I wouldn't be able to stand for hours today if I didn't get at least some sleep last night. Ironically I had a terrible nights sleep but that is beside the point!!

  2. Heidi says:

    I only made it till about 2:00 am. I really could have gone longer, but my eye was driving me nuts and with the bf and the cat asleep, it was just so easy to give in. Hopefully you'll be able to participate in the fall! It was fun. =)

  3. I just wanted to say that my library totally has those same fantasy spine stickers and I get so pumped whenever I see one :-)

  4. Jasmine Rose says:

    I managed to finish two books and get halfway through another. I was always scared of readathons before, but this one was really fun :]

  5. Heidi says:

    Awesome! Grats Jasmine, that's what I call success! I thought this one was tons of fun because there wasn't tons of pressure. You could go at your own pace, participate to your own level, and take breaks when you needed. Hope you'll do it again in the fall!

    Bwahaha, awesome. They're so tacky. UNICORNS HOOOOOOOOOO!
