Dec. 5th Read-A-Thon!!!

Because I work on Saturdays, I wasn’t able to participate in the first read-a-thon I discovered back in the early days of spring, when the book blogging world was blowing open to me. I was eager to participate in the next one I found, but once again Dewey’s Read-a-Thon falls on a Saturday. Why, oh why, can the world in general have free Saturdays, while I must slave away at selling movie tickets and serving pop corn?! I just want to READ (for 24 hours straight!)

read-a-thonHowever, my dream can still come true. To my great excitement Bethany of Dreadlock Girl Reads can’t participate in the Oct. 24th read-a-thon either, and in her brilliance she has scheduled a NEW read-a-thon for Dec. 5th. While that is also a Saturday, I actually DON’T have to work since Reel Pizza Cinerama will be closed for our winter break! Thank you Bethany – you have earned my affection forever. 🙂

So. The deal is that on the 5th of December I will begin reading at 6 a.m. and not stop reading until the following morning – 24 hours. Actually, I will break up the reading with some blogging and cheering for the other participants now and then – as well as snacking and going to fetch another beverage! I’ll come up with a hefty stack of SHORT books and see how many I can get through. Sounds totally awesome, right? Hu-rah!!

Meanwhile, I must dash over to visit Lu at Regular Rumination, who is in the thick of her own “Faux-Read-A-Thon day”, (unable to swing the 24th, she went out on a limb and is read-athoning a day early!) to cheer her on.

And a big pre-cheer for all the eager readers who are hopefully going to bed early tonight, falling asleep with that huge and exciting pile of books beside their bed, ready for the 6 o’clock alarm and the start of Dewey’s Read-a-Thon. Good luck and happy reading!


  1. I am so glad you are excited!! I too can’t wait. It might be fun to do this on a smaller scale anyway, then we can really keep track of eachother and cheer eachother on!! 🙂 Thanks so much for joining in, I am so happy that you are able to do this one.

  2. […] everyone who has commented today!  I love you: Amanda, Eva, Nymeth, Emily, Trish, gnoegnoe, lena, tuulenhaiven, Vasilly, Aarti, Lauren and […]
