Weekend fun: Dewey’s Read-A-Thon!

What are you doing this weekend? Because I have an amazingly fun idea! Starting at 7am central time on Saturday, I’m spending 24 hours reading books!!

Yeah, it does sound excellent!

Of course, this is a flexible 24 hour period. I’m stocking up on audio books from Overdrive to have books to listen to as I am out doing things. I have a stack of paper books from the library, just ready and waiting for me to dive into that massive TBR pile! I’m accumulating a stash of all important reading snacks. And I’ll probably have some cool beverages too – after all, we have a fun Books and Beverages Podcast filled with suggestions!

How can you join in the fun of it all?? Sign up right here!

What is the 24 Hour Read-a-thon?

It’s sort of a reading challenge, only everyone participates at the same time. For 24 hours, we read books, post on social media about our reading, and visit other bookworms online. We also participate in mini-challenges throughout the day and win prizes. In recent years, this event has grown to encompass Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Goodreads, Litsy, a Facebook group, and other channels as well!”

What else can you do? Use the official hashtag #readathon. And CMLE members can use our hashtag #CMLEReads.

Join me! Read books! Enjoy working you way through your pile of books, in any format! Spend a super-fun 24 hours, or any portion of that, having some book-related joy!
