Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon begins tomorrow, at 7 am CST, but I wanted to share with all of you what I’ll be doing.
First off, the books. Since I’m also participating in the #ShelfLove reading challenge, all my books are off of my own bookshelves, whether physical or virtual. I’ll switch back and forth between books on the list as needed, but I am going to try to finish as many books as possible this readathon. So, most of the books are under 300 pages:
- The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice
- The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
- The Hobbit Companion by David Day
- Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke
- The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente
- The Hostile Hospital by Lemony Snicket
- Mother Ocean, Daughter Sea by Diana Marcellas
- The Sons of Macha by John Lenahan
- The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde
- The Master Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg
- The Giver by Lois Lowry
- Parnassus On Wheels by Christopher Morley
- Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye by Tania del Rio
- Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer
- The Bookshop by Penelope Fitzgerald
- The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupéry
Yes, my TBR list is insanely long, but I want plenty of short and fun choices. Since past readathons were filled with a lot more time on the internet than with pages being turned, this readathon will be more about reading than socializing for me. Or at least that’s my goal. However, my BFF will be in town, and we’re getting together in the afternoon. So, while I will be trying to stay up for the entire 24 hours, there will be a large chunk of time during which I won’t be reading.
My updates will be every 8 hours after my kick-off post. Along with the books I’ve finished and the number of pages I’ve read, I’ll include any mini-challenges I’ve participated in, along with other tidbits such as music or snacks.
Are you participating in Dewey’s Readathon? If so, what books do you have planned to read? Leave a comment, and include your link if you have a “goals” post!
See you tomorrow morning! 🙂
