Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon

Dewey’s 24 hour readathon is Saturday, October 17th this year, and I’m getting ready. How about you? I love this readathon. Not only do I spend hours upon hours reading, I am immersed in an event with hundreds and hundreds of other readers around the world. Last time there were 1500 participants and they blew up all the social media (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Goodreads…). Talk about fun. Go ahead, sign up here.

How I prep for Dewey’s 24 hour readthon

I’ll post more about the readathon over the next couple of weeks. There are ways to prepare so you have a successful, fun event. Of course, heading the to-do list is selecting books for the readathon. No, I haven’t done that yet; but I will. I always like to begin with a short read. Sort of sets the stage and gives me a feeling of success when I finish that first book. Another thing I like to do is food prep. I mean, come on, readers must eat–especially if they are in a 24-hour reading marathon. More to come on that, too.

Questions about the 24 Hour Readathon?

Great 24 hour readathon and book club edition of Xingu by Edith WhartonMaybe you have a couple of questions? Feel free to ask away in the comments below. I’m usually very active on Twitter and the TweetDeck is smoking during the 24 hour readathon period. Many participants use Instagram to share their books, food, and tips. I’ll also be writing a number of posts as we get closer to the big day. Look for 24 hour readathon tips, food choices, book titles, and more.

You might wonder whether you have to read specific books? No. Perhaps you have a favorite oldie but goody that you’d like to re-read? Read away. I know I do. There are no limits on what you read, what order, or even how many hours you participate and when. There is a specific official start and end time for each time zone around the world but in between those times you have free range.

What about Xingu*? Yes, I always start my readathons with Edith Wharton’s XINGU*, a perfect short story for readers and bookclubs–and funny.

That’s all for today. Ready to join us for Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon? Make sure you SIGN UP NOW!
