Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon Is BACK: And A Stack

This time of the year sort of feels like Christmas, only it comes twice a year and I’m not obligated to spend money, y’all it’s the biannual Dewey 24 Hour Readathon. That’s right, it starts Saturday at 8 a.m. for my EST time zone.

I will be hosting a mini-challenge for Dewey’s Readathon towards the very end, and it’s a fun one, I pinky swear.

Anyways, I’m pretty sure you’re here for the stack, so boom here’s my potential reads:

Readathon Stack April 21 2012

This time around, I’m mixing it up with review books, some purchases, and the traditional Roald Dahl book.

The list – please note I doubt I’ll read all of these, but I like having a large, predetermined pool to choose from:

The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick – I’ve read about 80 pages of this and the time has come to finally finish it.

Father Of Lies by Ann Turner – I chose this because it’s very tiny with under 250 pages, plus nothing captivates me like the Salem Witch Trials.

First Day On Earth by Cecil Castellucci – 150 pages on alien abductions with…62 chapters. I’m pretty sure this book is the ultimate readathon book.

After Tupac and D Foster by Jacqueline Woodson – Yo, Tupac was an awesome rapper. Also, I’m a fan of Jacqueline Woodson.

Sailor Moon 1 by Naoko Takeuchi – Nostalgia AND comics are great on my eyes at night.

Neversink by Barry Wolverton – What’s a readathon without some middle grade?

Before You Go by James Preller – So basically the book is described on the back as being gripping and during a readathon I desperately want to be gripped.

The Celery Stalks At Midnight by James Howe – BOOM! Zombie vegetables.

The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl – It’s kind of a tradition for me to read a Roald Dahl book at every Readathon.

Waiting by Carol Lynch Williams – This noise is written in VERSE and everyone knows that a verse book is ideal for a readathon because they go quick.

Just Write: Here’s How by Walter Dean Myers – So this is a review book and really short and I’d love to check it off my list by reading it during Dewey’s.

First Comes Love by Katie Kacvinsky – A thin contemporary book about a relationship. HOLLA.

Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber – I am all about books set during prom.

Invisible World by Suzanne Weyn – Again, I am DOWN WITH SALEM WITCH TRIALS.

Bone by Jeff Smith one volume edition – I will try to read from this when my eyes get tired. It’s 9 books in one.

Thumped by Megan McCafferty – I quite liked the first book and think finding out what happened to Harmony and Melody will get me through some of the readathon.

Also, I will likely take a few breaks to unofficially cheerlead for some friends. Let me know if you are participating!
