24-hour Read-a-Thon

Spread the love

Yep, it’s that time again! Dewey is hosting her bi-annual 24-Hour Read-a-Thon this October 18 starting at noon GMT.
From the FAQ page:

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 in our blogs about our reading, and visit other readers’ blogs. We also participate in mini-challenges throughout the day.

I participated the first time but missed this spring however I will be participating this fall! I won’t have anyone to watch the kids so it won’t be 24 hours non-stop but as Dewey says:

Do I have to stay up the whole 24 hours?
No, although it’s more fun if if you do. Cheerleaders only need to commit to at least one hour, and Readers can either choose to stay up the entire time or take breaks as they need to. There are some prizes that you’ll only be eligible for if you participate all 24 hours.

So be sure to go on over there and read the full FAQ page and see how you can participate. If you can’t be a reader, then perhaps you can cheerlead (cheer others on and/or run a mini-challenge) or donate a prize or even just post about it on your blog!
