Deweys Read-a-Thon

Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon is this weekend and there is still time to go sign up!  This will be my 5th time participating as a reader and I am really looking forward to this weekend.

As always, I am reading for charity.  This time it is for the Richardson Adult Literacy Center!

How I do this:

  1. Every book read is worth $2 donation (I usually get about 5 done)
  2. Every comment on an update post, intro post, and mini-challenge post (I am hosting one too) is worth .50 cents
  3. Every hour read is worth $1 (last time I got in 16 hours but aiming for 18 this time)
  4. This time: Every entry into my mini-challenge post (Hour 4) is worth .50 cents

Hopefully I will be donating around $50 to charity 🙂  Feel free to make my pocket book hurt!

Things I do to prep:

  • Friday Night Grocery Store Run and Food Prep!  For me this will involve a run to Trader Joes and BBQ run for Saturday Night Dinner!
  • Early to bed on Friday Night!  I always plan to get a full 8 hours before the read-a-thon starts!
  • Loading up the Kindle!  I have to admit that for this read-a-thon I am trying to give myself a LOT of variety to keep it fresh. I am not going to make a list–that kills me every time.
  • Get my sister to watch the dogs on Saturday (which she has agreed to do)
  • Make sure I have “posts” ready to go so that I can do quick updates to them instead of spending time posting.
  • Morning of: Run to Sonic for 4 Rt 44 Unsweet Ice Teas with Extra Ice!  This is my drink of choice and they keep well in the fridge!

Are you ready?

  1. I love reading about your prep. Good luck, Felicia! Someday I am going to take a break to do one of these read-a-thons (which require kicking my family out of the house or me relocating to a hotel…hehe!) smiles…

  2. I’ve never done this read-a-thon…maybe I should go for it this time! Of course, I really should be writing my components for my National Boards renewal but I’m just feeling it (BAD GIRL). Hum…
