  1. Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon

    Saturday, April 10, 2010

    I've just made the crazy spur of the minute decision to sign up to participate in the 24 Hour Read-A-Thon! It's not too late for YOU to sign up too!

    I am hoping that this event will help me knock a few books off of my massive TBR pile. I don't have much of a plan as of yet but I'm thinking it is a good opportunity to start on the Harry Potter Reading Challeng which I signed up for forever ago and still have not started. So my vague sort-of plan looks a bit like this:
    • Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling
    • The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling
    • Winter by John Marsden
    • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling
    • The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks
    • Quidditch Through the Ages by J.K. Rowling
    The Harry Potter companion books are not technically a part of the challenge but I had planned to read and review them anyway. Also, they are short so finishing them in between the longer books will hopefully keep me motivated. The The Zombie Survival Guide is a reread but I want to refresh my memory for review.

    I have no idea if I will even be able to finish one book or all of the books. I really just plan to go with the flow. The challenge starts late in the evening here for me and I am rather fond of sleep so I'll stay up for so of it but I don't plan to remain conscious for entire event. As for snacks, I am armed with plenty of chocolate left over from Easter. I'll post some updates throughout the event but have not set myself a schedule.

    Mosey on over to the 24 Hour Read-A-Thon website to learn more about the event and to sign up!

    Good luck to everyone who is going to participate!

      And this does seem like a great time to read the Harry Potter books for your challenge. My goal is to read the series by the end of the year. I need to start on book 3 soon.

      I hope you are enjoying your day of reading! Harry Potter sounds like a great choice. I'm going to check out Marsden one of these days.

      Looks like you are making great headway
      Keep up the reading, don’t let that head sway
      Eyes on the page and coffee in hand
      You’ll be entering a new land.

      GO READER!
