I participated in Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon as a Reader for the first time last spring. I had so much fun then that I am setting my alarm to be in my reading chair, book in hand, at 8:00 Saturday morning, October 17, 2015 (i.e., tomorrow) to do it again. That is the official start time for people in the Indianapolis, Indiana, USA area, which is where I am. Some 1600+ people will participate from all over the world.
I have stacks of print books from my public library and stacks of print books that I’ve bought, plus several audiobooks on my iPhone for when I need to give my eyes a rest, plus a few audiobooks on CD in my car for when I need to pop out for food or to take some things to the post office. Saturday is the only free day I have for the next couple of weeks so I need to do some life maintenance stuff, too. But MOSTLY I will be reading! Yay!
Check back to this blog and follow me on Twitter as @LibraryHope and/or on Instagram as hope.baugh for updates if you want. I am also on GoodReads as Hope Baugh but I rarely add reviews there because I don’t enjoy agonizing over how many stars to give a book.
In fact, better would be to follow the #readathon tag on Twitter and Instagram. More information about the whole thing is at www.24hourreadathon.com/.
Thanks in advance to whatever official Cheerleaders stop by this blog to leave encouraging comments. Best of luck and happy reading to all involved!
