It's Readathon Time, It's Readathon Time!

It's time for the fall edition of Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon. You know what that means - I'll get very excited about the stack of books I'm going to get read on Saturday, I'll stock up on snack foods and beverages to keep me going, and I'll...fall asleep only about an hour later than I usually do. In my defense, I do stay up pretty late to begin with. But after fighting through the first couple of these and not even enjoying my last few hours of reading (plus spending all of Sunday groggy after only a few hours of sleep), I've pretty well backed off the idea that I'll make it all 24 hours.

This time, I'm also going to try to be less focused on reading (although, I know, that is what the title of the event says this is about) and more focused on community. I'll be cheerleading again and I'll try to do several of the mini-challenges. Since I know that a lot of you don't care about any of this, though, there will be only one post that I'll just update.

Here's what I'm hoping to get read:

I'm reading Ann Leary's The Good House right now for book club on Tuesday and it will be up first to get finished.

Then I'll move on to Wiley Cash's This Dark Road To Mercy which I'm reading for an upcoming TLC Book Tours stop.

Then, if by some miracle, I'm still awake and have time, I'll start From The Mixed-Up Files Of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konigsburg which is on my Classics Club list and which I was recently inspired to pick up while reading Burnt Toast Makes You Sing Good


  1. I think it's a great event ad super fun but I do it ALL wrong every time I participate. I won't be participating this time. Too busy but in the past, I posted too much, didn't read enough and in general, just felt overwhelmed. I wish you luck and lots of fun!

  2. I don't know any of these books but I hope you enjoy those readings ! Thank you for your message on my blog, this was really kind of you :)

  3. I want to do this! I'm hoping for next year. Good on you for doing it!
