October 2016 Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon!

It’s time for another Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon!!!  I almost forgot all about it.  I’m going to take this one pretty easy because the last couple of readathons I did this year totally wiped my reading mood off the board.

What is Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon? For 24 hours, we read books, post to our blogs, Twitters, Tumblrs, Goodreads and MORE about our reading, and visit other readers’ homes online. We also participate in mini-challenges throughout the day. It happens twice a year, in April and in October.

It was created by the beloved Dewey (her blog is archived at the Wayback Machine). The first one was held in October 2007. Dewey died in late 2008. We’re still saddened by her absence, but the show must go on. The read-a-thon was renamed to honor its founder in 2009.

Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon is hosted by Heather and Andi of The Estella Society, with help from volunteers.

For the readathon, I’m just going to continue on with the books left in my Halloween themed TBR.  As of right now, I will have 4-5 books to choose from depending on how many I read before Saturday.  Start time is 7am CST but I plan to start whenever I wake up which won’t be long after that anyways.  I do not plan to stay up for the full 24 hours.  I haven’t been able to do that since college.  Feel free to follow along with my progress on Instagram and Twitter!  After the readathon is over I will post an update here.
