Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon Signup
I haven’t participated in Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon in a while. I wasn’t going to participate this time either because I thought I had a final on April 30th, but I found out my final’s on May 2nd instead. For that reason, I’ve decided to participate in the readathon and I’m really excited about it.
For those of you who’ve never heard of Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon, here’s some information about it from the official readathon blog:
For 24 hours, we read books, post to various social media: blogs, Twitter, Instagram, Litsy, Reddit, Facebook, Goodreads, and MORE about our reading. We also participate in mini-challenges throughout the day. It happens twice a year, in April and in October. We also have an extra readathon, the Dewey’s Reverse Readathon, which happens in August. The next event is our April Readathon scheduled for April 30, 2022.
The readathon starts at 8am Eastern Daylight Time on April 30th, which is 6am where I live. If you’re not sure what time that is where you live, there’s a time converter on the official blog. Just click Start Times in the menu underneath the header.
At this point, the readathon is too far away for me to have a proposed TBR. I’ll post one (probably on Instagram so be sure to follow me) the closer we get to the date. I don’t usually participate for the whole 24 hours because I need my sleep. I still try to read for as long as I can. Sometimes I’ll hang out with a couple of friends at Suey’s (It’s All About Books) house and we’ll read together for a few hours, which is a lot of fun.
Are you going to participate in the readathon? Are you veteran or will this be your first time?
Love Dewey’s! I’ve participated in every one since 2017 (in the Goodreads group) including all of the August Reverses when they started it. I’ve made it 24 hours once. I usually make it to about 20. I love sleep too much. lol. I’ve pushed myself in the past but I’m not going to this April as I have so much going on in my personal life that I don’t want to put myself through that. I’m going to keep it low-key. Still trying to find the balance of being social on IG and GR and tuning out. lol. Can’t wait!
That’s really cool that’s you’ve participated in every one since 2017. I’ve tried to participated in them. I’ve even signed up for them. Then. my husband inevitably wants to do something the day of the readathon so I hardly get any reading done, lol. I’m determined this time’s going to be different. 😂
My friends and family now know that I mean business when I say I am unavailable that weekend. lol.
Lol. Hopefully, I can train my husband to realize the same. 😂
Best of luck to you, Jenni! I’ll be rooting for you.
Thanks, Wendy! 🙂
I haven’t heard about it the readathon before – I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks, Louise! It’s a really fun readathon. If you like readathons, you should join us. 😀
Yea!!!! I love love love Dewey’s readathons!! I am so signing up for sure. Thanks for bringing under our attention. I tend to miss these events if someone don’t remind me of it!
Oh, I’m glad I could help you then! I hope you have fun! 💜
Hopefully I can work it out this year too!
I hope so! It would be fun. 🙂
