Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon that takes place on October 24th. Why do you ask? I say WHY NOT!!! It actually sounds like a whole lot of sleep deprived fun! Apparently this tradition was started years ago by a woman named Dewey. And after she passed away a couple of years ago a few loyal book blogging folks decided to keep up this cool event for everyone to join in!
When you sign up as a reader, all you have to do is read for 24 hours, and update your blog as you do so. You can adjust this to fit your own needs, such as myself who has a family to run, I'll be taking breaks throughout the day to feed and water them. And then I'll be back at reading, posting and our lovely cheerleaders will be posting mini-challenges through-out the 24 hour period for the readers to have fun with and take a bit of a brain break! The read-a-thon is world wide and happens at exactly the same time, they have included all of the relevant timezones so you will be reading along with everyone else.
I am going to try my "darndest" to stay awake the full 24 hours, God only knows I've done it enough at work, and having a whole lot less fun!
You can sign up as a reader OR as a cheerleader! Click here for more details.
Oh.. and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!! I'll see you on Tuesday!!!
