Are you overwhelmed by a massive pile of books to be read? Do you need a little motivation to tackle the list? Do you love games and winning prizes? If the answer is YES, I have just the thing for you!
I suggest you join Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-Thon, which takes place this Saturday, October 22. This online event began in October of 2007 and has been growing ever since. I participated during part of the April Read-a-Thon and it was tons of fun. I had to work that day so I wasn’t able to do the entire 24 hours, but that is my goal for this weekend! It’s so easy to join. Simply go to the website, 24hourreadathon.com, fill out the form, find your start time (if you are here in the Cleveland area with me it’s 8 a.m.) and get ready to read! If you are near a computer, be sure to follow the blog for mini-challenges and chances to win prizes. The website offers lots of tips, but from experience I can say comfy clothes, coffee, and lots of snacks are read-a-thon essentials. I am all signed up, now I just need to pick my books…
Anyone out there care to join me? C’mon, you know you want to! You can follow my progress on my YA blog, YA? Why Not?
