Dewey’s Read-A-Thon Sign-Up Post

By Joyweesemoll @joyweesemoll

Dewey's Read-a-Thon buttonI took forever to decide that I am going to participate in Dewey’s Read-a-Thon this Saturday, but here I am with my sign-up post!

Here are the questions I had to answer for myself.

Is it too late to sign up to be a cheerleader? I don’t have an answer to that, but I filled out the form anyway: Cheerleading Sign Ups.

How do you spell readathon read-athon read a thon read-a-thon? Two dashes, unless it’s for the hashtag on Twitter and then it’s no dashes, #readathon.

What are the start and finish times for Missouri (Central Daylight Time)? 7 AM Saturday morning to 7 AM Sunday morning. In practice, that means I’ll be reading all day Saturday since I don’t get up earlier than 7 and don’t stay up much past 1 AM even to read.

What books am I going to read?

I have two started so I’ll begin with those:

  • Brave Genius by Sean B. Carroll
  • The Perfume Collector by Kathleen Tessaro

I have two books I want to read for Book Clubs this month, so those go on the list:

It’s always good to have a YA novel in the mix:

  • Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

Sometimes, an inspiring book works best for me:

  • The Thank You Economy by Gary Vaynerchuk

A book about books would be appropriate:

  • The Little Guide to Your Well-Read Life by Steve Leveen

Do you have books to suggest? Will you be doing Dewey’s Read-a-Thon?
