Read-a-thon!

Pin It


Just a reminder, Dewey's Read-a-thon is this weekend. I've got to get my books ready. What will you be reading? I'd like to see what you all have up your sleeves.

Dewey posted this list of Read-a-thon tips. Very helpful.

a. When you stop reading to write an updating post, come here to check in for mini-challenges and prize drawings before you post. I think some people missed some of these last time because they posted and went straight back to reading. Also, you will probably need frequent reading breaks to stay sane!

b. Have an audio book on hand for when you want to run errands, pick up kids, do some chores, go for a run, etc. Some people found that audio books were also just nice breaks when their eyes were tired.

c. Start off with a short or light book so you have an early feeling of accomplishment when you finish it.

d. Have some light reading or humorous books for the end when you’re tired.

e. Have some pre-made snacks on hand so you don’t have to stop too often make yourself meals.




Good luck and have fun!

  1. A read-a-thon sounds like so much fun. I'm going to be doing an edit-a-thon this weekend. One of these days, though, one of these days, I'll just sit back and read.

    But, I will have my audio book going for any driving. Thank goodness for audio books.

  2. You're participating? Good for you. It looks like fun, but I don't know if my family would understand. They already think I read all the time. Some day I'll join in.

  3. Oh, I'd forgotten about Dewey's readathon! Silly jury duty has thrown me completely off. I'm going to unofficially cheer.
