Day: June 13, 2008

Once again, I will be participating in Dewey’s Readathon this June 28-9th. I was active for 15/24 hours of it last October, but since it is summer, I will be aiming for much longer. Darcie began a meme, and I was tagged by Eva.

If I had 24 hours to read, be my goals would be… to read a lot. It’s quite simple for me because I only read two books and one play, but only completed books. I definitely need to finish more than one book this time and use time to put a dent in my various reading challenges.

This is what I am going to have to do to get 24 hours of reading…caffeine, I guess. I went easy on it last time, and I always have a ton of unread books. I’ve been spending most of my past Saturdays reading so it should not be too difficult.

If someone asked me for recommendations of “can’t put down” books for the read-a-thon, I would recommend: Depend on the read I guess. I rec based on people’s tastes. Personally, it depends on your kind of book.

For you, what was your favorite part of the October read-a-thon and why? I really liked the cheerleaders and other readers who came to my blog, and the sense of being part of something larger. I liked the mini challenges.

If you’ve participated before, do you have any advice for newbie readers? Updates should have information of things read, what you did other than read, books read, etc. Participate in the challenges, visit other readers, and take breaks whenever you need to whether to move around, eat or get some caffeine. Thank Dewey. Have fun. Simple and good stuff.

Generally, I don’t like to tag on memes, but I’m tagging my fellow readers Andi and Chris.
