24 Hour Readathon Begins! October 2018


It’s that time!!!! Time for the semi-annual Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon!!!!  As always I’m super excited and ready to go! I’ve got my TBR pile, snacks, and clothing (see photo off to the right) all prepared. This is officially my 5th time participating in this readathon. I do not anticipate making it the full 24 hours, but I am geared up to get some quality reading time in that will help me achieve my yearly reading goals.

Readathon Goals:

  • I want to read for at least 13 hours today.
  • I want to complete 3 books.
  • I want to read at least 500 pages.
  • I want to complete at least 5 mini-challenges.
  • Get Bingo.



TBR (soooo many to chose from):

Obviously I don’t intend to read all of the following, but I like to have a lot of options to chose from in all different types of reading tools, like physical books, ebooks, and audiobooks. I’ve learned that a variety helps utilize every moment of the readathon to accomplish all your reading goals.

Physical Books





If you have never participated in this readathon before, I would recommend that you try it! It’s so much fun!

Here is my first read of the day:

  1. Hurray for you for doing the read-a-thon!! I had never heard of it before this week, probably via your blog, but it sounds like too much fun! I’m watching this time around to see if I can understand what is happening. HAPPY READING!!

    • It’s a lot of fun. Hourly mini-challenges. Tons of social media posts. Hopefully a lot of quality reading time. The bingo sheet is new and I love it. I’ve only successfully made it 24 hours once. It was easier when I didn’t have a Mon-Fri 8-5 job. Now I just participate as long as I can and enjoy every moment! You should do the next one in April.
