Are you read-a-thonning tomorrow?

deweyreadathon

I wasn’t going to participate this time, but I couldn’t help myself. I just signed up for Dewey’s Read-a-thon tomorrow. I have class and a bunch of other work to do, so I’m going to set my goal at 8 hours of reading. Also I figure if I read some of the books I have for homework that makes it productive time right?

If anyone wants to join me, here’s the link to sign up. It really is pretty much the most fun ever. Let the reading begin!

Dewey’s Read-a-thon

deweyreadathonFrom 8am this morning to 8am tomorrow, people all around the world (and the web) will be reading. Here is the website where you can get more info about this challenge.

Dewey’s Read-a-thon

dewey1-300x300For the next 24 hours I’m going to be part of Dewey’s Read-a-thon.  This is my second time participating and I’m more excited/less nervous than I was my first time around. I’m not hardcore enough yet to try to read the whole 24 hours, but I am going to try and surpass my time/page count from last April. This means I need to read for more than 13 hours and read more than 1,000 pages. Internet permitting (it’s been on the fritz lately) I’ll be updating this post throughout the day (and night!) on my progress and with fun mini-challenges.
