Booked Up on Saturday: It’s #Readathon Time!

I held off on committing for the longest time, but this is my official Declaration of Intent to participate in the Spring 2014 edition of Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon this Saturday, April 26.


My participation will be fairly casual because I didn’t clear my calendar for the day, but here’s my general plan:

  • Get up and read for a couple of hours (my local start time is 5 AM), posting brief updates here and on Twitter at the beginning and end.
  • Break for a few hours to take care of weekend errands.
  • Return to reading after I get home and spend most of the afternoon with the books. I will post brief updates here and on Twitter when I start and end, with possible interim check-ins on Twitter only.
  • Break for dinner and some evening time with my very patient husband.
  • Return to reading later in the evening for as long as I can stay awake. Any updates during the late reading session will be posted only on Twitter.
In keeping with keeping it casual, I don’t have any books set aside for the Readathon. What I do have are several books in progress that I’ve had to set aside for one reason or another at some point this year, and what I’d like to do this weekend is finish a couple of those.
Since I waited so long to sign up for the Readathon, I missed the cutoff to be assigned to a cheerleader squad, so if you see one of my updates and want to respond with some encouragement, I’d really appreciate you!
