This Saturday, April 10th is Dewey's Read-A-thon. You pretty much drop everything and read for 24 straight hours. Or as many as you can. Or you sign up and can cheerlead for people who are participating. I remember hearing about this last time there was a read-a-thon and I thought, hey that is pretty cool. Then as I was browsing through some blogs I was reading about people preparing for the Read-A-thon. It got me thinking. Hmmm.. should I participate? And I think the answer is yes.
I don't really want to commit to a whole 24 hour day, because I think my eyes will go cross, but I am thinking that I could handle a good 4-6 hours worth. And if maybe I could push it past that a little, but I think the husband really wants me to do some yard work this weekend!
So I don't believe I will be joining the 24 hour read-a-thon but I think I will participate in my own little way this weekend. God knows I need to finish off Middlesex and get started on Firefly Lane that I picked up today! I will plan on updating my blog sporadically during the time I am participating. Maybe next time around, I will participate in the whole she-bang.
Have any of you participated in the read-a-thon before? Are you participating this Saturday? If so good luck!
