Hey all, Dani here.
So I have participated in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathons for the past couple of years. They take place each April and October. The goal is to read as much as possible in the 24 hours of the readathon. And I have gotten used to the fact that the readathon starts for me at 8am on a Saturday and goes until 8am on Sunday.
But surprise! They have decided to do a summer readathon, and they are calling it a reverse readathon because it will be starting at 8pm–on a Friday (at least where I live) and going until 8pm on Saturday. The readathon will take place starting on July 28th and you can find out more (and sign up) by going here.
I don’t know how much I’m going to actually read for this event, but I do plan on participating for at least a little bit. Obviously this means that I need to figure out a TBR. But I’m already having a pretty good reading month so far in July, so I can’t exactly begin to guess where I’ll be in my planned TBR. Plus, with readathons, I like to pick some books that I know I can read fairly quickly.
Okay, well I looked around my library, and I think I’ve come up with a few options for this readathon, and they should all be fun and fast reads, which make them perfect for events like this. And who knows, maybe I’ll be able to dedicate a lot of the readathon’s 24 hours to reading and I’ll actually read more than this. I guess we’ll find out in a couple weeks.
That is all for today. Are you going to participate in Dewey’s Reverse Summer Readathon? I’ll be updating on Instagram throughout the event and then will have a section in my wrap-up talking about how I did with the readathon. And as always, I will be back soon with more bookish content.
