The read-a-thon is set to run for 24 hours, starting tomorrow morning, October 12 at 7:00 AM (times vary based on location). Mini-challenges will be hosted throughout the event, many complete with prizes.
I will NOT be participating the full 24 hours. I have a couple of writing workshops that I hope to attend in the morning. I have a husband and two children that will sporadically need my attention (though I may try to get my kids involved this year). In the past, I have strived for as much as the 24 hours as possible. This year, I am being more realistic. If I can get in at least 6-8 hours of good reading, I will be happy and consider this event a success.
Here is a little of what I will be working on throughout the day . . .
Finishing up Doctor Sleep by Stephen King (for the #sleepalong).
Diving into another volume of Fables . . . or more!
And, diving into these as my mood and time suits me.
I may or may not participate in the mini-challenges. I may or may not post updates here on the site throughout the day. I will post updates on Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter. And, I will do a wrap-up post on Sunday with the details of how much I actually was able to read.
I'm hoping with a change in my attitude and approach to the read-a-thon, I will consider this round to be more successful. Keep your fingers crossed for me and send some good reading vibes my way tomorrow.
Are you participating in Dewey's Read-A-Thon? What is on your reading list for the weekend?
