Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Charity, Books, & Challenge

Dewey’s is this weekend y’all!  Are you ready? This is what I looked like around the clock in April:

Deweys April 2013

This time I am hoping for 20 out of 24 hour participation!  I already know of 2 hours that I have to be out of the house due to a birthday party but otherwise I should be good. I am depending on my dogs to keep me up for the 24 hours (they will fail miserably at staying up themselves).

I am reading for Charity again this time!  Last time I made $125 for Richardson Adult Literacy Center.  This time I am going to read for the Love on Wheels Transport Program.

How it works (I will be mixing audiobooks and ebooks)

  • $5 for each book read
  • $5 for each hour listened (this is great for getting up and doing some exercise to keep the blood pumping)
  • 25 cents for each comment
  • 25 cents for every entry in my mini-challenge (8pm CST is when that happens)
  • $5 for each hour missed (This will be at least 2)

Books!  Dude this is one area that I have learned not to plan (though I don’t recommend this tactic to most).  I am such a mood reader that I pretty much just have to follow my mood.  I will be at home for this read-a-thon so I will have all my books!  ALL OF THEM! I am charging my kindle in advance.

Challenge: I am hosting a challenge again y’all!  Just a heads up to start thinking about what your favorite book is and who your dream narrator would be!  I thought it would be something fun and quick everyone could participate in. I would like Karl Urban to narrate Lonesome Dove.  Won’t happen but it would be awesome!

Hope to see y’all Saturday!  At the very least stop by and cost me money 🙂

    20 hours??? Ack! I’m going for 8. And if I read for more than 8 hours, then that’s great. It’s been a year since I last participated and I’m a little rusty. Plus I haven’t prepared my snacks and stuff. Bad me! Hoping to hit up the grocery store tomorrow before my 8am start time.

    Good luck!

    Nice! I haven’t ever done the readathon but I’ll be cheering you on! And probably reading along with you for much of it…though I need my 8 hours of sleep or I’m a total B. Good luck!

    I’m excited about it! My stack of books has already changed about three times. LOL That’s why I pull out way more than I can read in 24 hours. I’m a mood reader also so I need to have all my bases covered. 🙂 OT, but… you totally need to teach me how to do that instagram collage thingy. I’ve seen others do it too, but no idea how or where I would do that. I want to document my day of reading. 🙂
