The Read-a-Thon

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon begins tomorrow morning (at 5 my time, oh boy!) and runs until Sunday morning. This is such a fabulous event and something I definitely look forward to.  I have a stack of books on loan from the library (pictured) and several more on my Nook and on my bookshelves.  I do like my variety as I never know just what I'm going to be in the mood for from one book to the next.  A couple of things are certain though; I will definitely be beginning with The Peach Keeper as that is my current read.  I will also be definitely finishing up Spooky Buddies - which is the current book I am reading to my kids.  I always spend some of the afternoon time reading to my kids.  Reading is something we do together on a regular basis but it's also a guaranteed way for them to feel a part of the RAL.  And I hope in the future they'll participate in the RAL while reading their own books.

A good mix of romance and mystery - my favorite genres.  I must admit I am in the mood for spooky and mystical, though.  It must be the fact that it's the halloween season.  I am hoping to pick up a copy of Bunnicula today as I think my kids would love the book.

Who else is participating in the readathon? Do you have some book titles picked out? Anything particuar planned? I just plan to have a relaxing and nice time with my girls.  And to read for as much of the 24 hours as I possibly can.  Oh, and I am actually going to go to bed at a really decent time tonight so I can hopefully meet my 5 a.m.start time.  Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. I'm participating as well. I've posted my list on my blog though I don't plan on getting to them all. Mine is a 7 a.m. start and I thought that was early.

  2. BRILLIANT to start with Peach Keeper. I adore SAA.
    Happy READATHON! CHeers
