Yo, this is the Readathon that started it all, often imitated, never duplicated. The Dewey 24 Hour Readathon is the BIGGEST one out there, it has the most participants, the best mini challenges and is steeped in tradition.
To say I am pumped for the Readathon tomorrow at 8 a.m. EST EAST COAST REPRESENTTTT is an understatement. A heads up to my loyal amigos, I’ll be posting frequently tomorrow, and I don’t mind too much if you hit clear all from me in google reader. I am cool with that, bro. Also the majority of my tweets tomorrow will be #readathon focused.
So, I have enough energy drinks to make an ox’s heart explode. I have a pile of books almost as tall as me. And I have plenty of delicious food, NO VEGGIES THANK YOU VERY MUCH thanks to some snack tips from my twitter peeps.
If you still haven’t signed up, I suggest you do so. Trust me, you’ll feel so connected to the book blogging community and have a lot of fun.
ALSO I think cheerleader sign ups are still open and I think you should definitely check that out and commit at least an hour, I committed an hour because it’s a great way to take a break and refresh myself during the readathon. Also I get the warmfuzzies from saying nice, uplifting things to my fellow readers. I know that’s shocking, but true.
My Book Pile (for the inquiring minds out there):
Which Witch? by Eva Ibbotson (chose this because the last D24Readathon, I started Diana Wynne Jones and so I’m trying to make it a personal tradition where I try new authors with big backlists during readathons)
