24-Hour Readathon: Spring 2013

April 26, 2013 Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon 3

deweyI’m very excited to be participating in yet another of Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathons! The premise is simple: read for 24 hours (or as long as you can manage). Like for the past few readathons, I won’t read for the entire 24 hours. With two active boys, it is nearly impossible to devote this much time to reading. That said, I’m going to try my hardest to read as long as I can (and hopefully get the boys to join me for at least a few hours.

I will be posting my progress on my Tumblr page, then linking those updates to my official kick-off post tomorrow. Each of my updates will follow this format:

Progress so far:

  • Currently reading:
  • Books finished:
  • Pages read:
  • Running total of pages read:
  • Amount of time spent reading:
  • Running total of time spent reading:

Thanks to my lovely readathon Excel spreadsheet, the calculation of time and pages read will be calculated for me. This is especially helpful in the wee hours of the night!

On to the important stuff, food & books! Here is the stack of books I have lined up to read:


A pretty diverse group of books, yes? As far as food, I have some great snacks lined up, including baby carrots, nuts, cookies, pizza rolls, and cinnamon rolls. These snacks have worked in the past so I didn’t see why I should change the menu!

Are you participating in the readathon? What books are you planning to read?

    This will be my first 24-hr readathon and I am so excited! I won’t be doing a full 24 hours either (I need to sleep! And I have a 2-hr training run tomorrow morning for a race in May…), but I’m going to see how many I can squeeze in. I hope I have a good mix of books picked out. Should be interesting!

    I always love the readathon but sadly, will have to miss this time – our granddaughter is here and we have things to do tomorrow but in the midst of the busy day I plan to make a time out for reading for both myself and Elaine.
