Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon

And, now, for a readathon I’ve been eagerly awaiting all year.  Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon is here!

Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon, hosted by Heather and Andi of The Estella Society, takes place twice a year, in April and October.  And this Saturday, April 23 marks my first.

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!
