Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon #Readathon


Talk about making the decision to participate in the eleventh hour! I just wasn't sure if I should or not because I always do so poorly at the 24 hour read-a-thons. But I can't resist the allure, of course. And I'll only be gone today for a few hours so I just might be able to get in some reading. We shall see!

I plan to finish The Grip of God by Rebecca Hazell (I have less than 100 pages to go), start reading (and perhaps finish) Daughter of the Gods by Stephanie Thornton and will also try to finish the rest of The Eight by Katherine Neville.

No snacks on deck since I wasn't sure if I was going to sign up or not. I may try to pick a few things up when I'm out tomorrow.

Are you participating? If you haven't signed up, you can do so HERE.

Happy reading!

My intro meme, as I'm just starting:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?  Nashville, Tennessee
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? Daughter of the Gods by Stephanie Thornton
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?  chewy Lemonheads ;)
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
Reading is my life (second to my children, of course). I have 12 blogs, host 4 reading challenges (long term and perpetual), 4 week long read-a-thons yearly (seasonally) and am the primary host/mediator of two read-a-long groups on Goodreads. Plus, mom of two pre-teen boys and I work from home mom as a virtual assistant. Whew!
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
I fail at the 24 hour read-a-thons every time. I'm hoping to succeed this time by at least reading one book. Since I'm not participating for the entire 24 hours, I think that's a sane goal.

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. Yay! I will be sure to cheer for you! I am trying to help out with cheering since there are hundreds more participants than expected! Which is a good thing! Yay! So glad you're joining up! I can't do the full 24 hrs. either so no worries there.

  3. My daughter received a bunch of lemonheads for Easter, so that's what I've been snacking on today off and on. I'm not even sure I like them that much. LOL

    I am glad you were able to join in the readathon this year. I still have yet to. Maybe someday. I'm acting as a rogue cheerleader though when I can. When my daughter lets me. She's making it a challenge. :-)

    I hope you are enjoying your reading!
