IT’S READATHON THIS WEEKEND YOU GUYS.
This’ll be the first time I’m participating in Dewey’s. The last couple I’ve had something on so I haven’t been able to participate. BUT I’M GOING TO DO IT THIS TIME. What is Dewey’s? You can check out all the details on the official website (you should sign up while you’re there), but basically it’s, wait for it, a 24 hour readathon. Whuuuut?
Yes. For 24 hours you just. have. to. read. (and snack.) Thrilling, right? This one has an official start and finish time so everyone reads together. SOOOO if you’re in Australia, please come read with me! It starts at 11pm Saturday night Sydney time, so it’ll be a slightly earlier starts for those of you in Brisbane and the westerly states. I’ll be having midnight mac & cheese which I’m really excited about.
Here’s a picture of my potential reading stack:
I’ve got a few books on the go at the moment so I’d like to make a dent in those – War & Peace in particular – but I might dip in and out of some newbies as well. I’ve got a bunch of comics for when I want some lighter reading, as well as an audiobook to listen to while doing some crafting (I have a baby blanket that needs to be finished by next weekend, so this seems like a good time to work on it). So I’ll pretty much just be dipping in and out of books at my leisure, rather than aiming for any particular goals. It’s going to be super relaxed and excellent.
I might not be updating much on here – I’ll probably just do a big wrap up post at the end – but I’ll be on many of the other social medias if anyone’s joining in on those. Here’s where I’ll be:
- Twitter (quite a bit)
- Instagram (a little bit)
- And my new favourite place, LITSY (a lot)!! I can’t link to my profile for this, but if you want to be friends on there, just leave your username below, or search for me – I’m @heather_reads on there.
So if you’re not doing anything this weekend, or you are doing something but don’t really want to do it, come and join a bunch of other readers for the Readathon. Here’s a direct link for the sign ups for your convenience.
