Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon

It may start tomorrow morning (10/24/2020) bright an early at 7 AM central standard time, but I am actually ready this year with a stack AND a plan! Several, mostly unsuccessful readathons, have taught me a thing or two and this time – I feel ready to enjoy the experience.


  • I have a varied stack of books to read. Mixing up nonfiction, fiction, middle grade, audiobooks and graphic novels helps me keep reading. It’s like when I used to go to the gym and only do fifteen minutes on each machine. I plan to keep bopping around but not stopping.
  • I have designated three (THREE) different reading areas in my house. No need to get reading cramps!
  • I have cleared my schedule this year. No errands, no activities, no distractions. In the past I would go to do something that wasn’t reading and never return.
  • I didn’t buy a bunch of new books but I did put aside money for snacks and fancy tea.
  • I’m going to embrace the nap this year.


The stack is probably better labelled as “my choices.” I have some available on kindle, some as an audiobook, and the rest are physically in my home. I feel ready!


The biggest part of Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon that I miss out on is the social aspect. As a minimum, I want to keep a copy of the Bingo the group puts out while I read. I would love to think that I will be tweeting and blogging about my experience but, c’mon, that feels like big goals. Still, one never knows!

Tell me, please! Are you participating in the Readathon?
