And, now, for a readathon I’ve been eagerly awaiting all year. Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon is here!
That’s right. For 24 hrs, I’ll be reading from a selection from my vicious TBR list (and probably adding to it), posting updates on my progress, and participating in mini challenges. You know what that means: great opportunities to have fun and win prizes! Find out more about how to take part in this readathon here.
So far, my reading list will include the following books:
Harley Quinn, Vol. 1: Hot in the City (Harley Quinn II, #1) by Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, Chad Hardin, Stephane Roux, Alex Sinclair, & Paul Mounts
A Fine Imitation by Amber Brock
Rebel of the Sands (Rebel of the Sands, #1) by Alwyn Hamilton
The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn, #1) by Renee Ahdieh
The Story of Hong Gildong by Unknown, Translated by Minsoo Kang Steel Scars (Red Queen, #0.2) by Victoria Aveyard Now We Are Six (Winnie the Pooh, #4) by A. A. Milne Princess Love Pon by Shauna J. Grant
I’m definitely going for variety with this list–with genres, age groups, formats, length, etc.–so I don’t get bored. This may be my first time joining this particular readathon, but past experience with others have taught me that I can and will get a little bored. And that’s also why I’ve included more books than I actually hope to finish. It’ll help keep me from tiring out and urge me to read more all at once.
I plan to take regular breaks as well. One of those will involve taking time out to join the Book Bloggers Twitter Chat (or #BBTC) at 8 pm EST hosted by @BBookRambles. I enjoyed the one last week, and I’m sure this one will be lots of fun as well.
And I’ve got most of my snacks ready as well a meal plan. I’ll finish up preparation the night before. (See, I have learned from the past.)
This time I’ll mainly be participating as a reader, and you can too. To do so, sign up here. You can also cheer readers on as a cheerleader (this is me unofficially), participate in other ways, or just follow the action via social media (for Twitter, that’s #Readathon). It’s up to you. Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon is a great way to interact with other bookish types and make connections. So, however you decide to get involved will be worthwhile.
Have Fun and Happy Reading!
