24 Hour Read-a-Thon

I have signed up for Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon.

This means that, as the “24 hour” part of the read-a-thon’s name implies, I will read for a solid 24 hour period starting at 2 AM EST on April 18th, 2009 and end at 2 AM the following morning (that’s how a 24 hour period of time works).

Yes, I expect to stop reading for those pesky survival habits like eating and using the restroom; however, I have no intention of letting a single moment pass without the words of some book or another stimulating my brain. This will be accomplished through audiobooks. I will read until it’s not possible to read, at which point I will switch to an audiobook and carry on until I can read again. This way I can start out reading at home, walk to Central Park or something, and resume reading there.

I can’t wait!

Any suggestions for books?

Books, Reading


  1. Beth With the last Harry Potter book I didn’t even stop reading to eat. Good luck. I don’t really know what to recommend, as I’m positive you know many more books than I do.

    I’m sure you have lots of good suggestions. I don’t know that I know of more books than you, but even if I did it doesn’t mean I know of all the books you know! :)

    I forgot to mention that I’ll also take breaks throughout the day to blog or twitter about what I’ve read.

  3. kevin so how’d it go?
  4. kevin i think you should do a blog-a-thon hehe

    The read-a-thon is on the 18th, so I haven’t done it yet.

    A blog-a-thon? Do nothing but blog for 24 hours? Wow yikes. I certainly wouldn’t post all of the posts all at once!

  6. Vasilly Hi! Just wanted to remind you the read-a-thon is tomorrow. Good luck.
