24 Hour Read-a-Thon & I Run 1/2 Marathon?

So, if you've never heard of Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon, please join me and we can take this journey together.

This read-a-thon takes place on April 25th 2015.

What's so unique about Dewey's? I mean, there are 24 hour read a thons all the time, right? Right. But how often do people participating all around the world start reading at the same time?  Yes, you heard me. People that participate in this read-a-thon don't necessarily start at midnight. If you are interested in participating, you can find the official start time for all time zones here.

Do I have to stay up all 24 hours? No! I'm running a half marathon that morning, so I definitely won't be reading during all twenty four hours. Also, I will definitely at least be taking a nap after that.

What will you be reading? Well, why don't you take a look?


Along with attempting to finish The Girl on the Train  by Paula Hawkins and listening to some more of the hilarious and beautiful The Help  by Kathryn Stockett, I plan on finishing one graphic novel and at least starting one other novel.

I am definitely going to pick up Lumberjanes, Volume 1  which is something that I have heard excellent things about. Also, from a few quick glances, the artwork is stunning. If I finish The Girl on the Train ,  then I am definitely going to pick up Me and Earl and the Dying Girl.  It looks like it would be a quick read, and it's less than 300 pages.


Am I crazy for participating in this after running/walking a half marathon? Actually, don't answer that because I know I'm crazy. 

What are you reading this weekend? Are you participating in Dewey's Read-a-Thon? Tell me down below!

Happy Reading!

  15. WOW girl, that's one hell of an accomplishment - you're basically doing TWO marathons in ONE day! Also I think The Girl On the Train will be relatively quick - it picks up toward the end and is hard to put down. Interested to hear what you think about Me & Earl - it's been on my maybe list for a while! Good luck and happy reading!

  16. Oh they have the best recommendations!

  17. The readathon has been great so far. I found it difficult to walk to my mailbox today, much less run a race. I am in awe. *bows down*

    It is really quiet now. I can hear my cat snoring as I try to finish my last pages. We are in the homestretch. Best of luck in achieving your read-a-thon goals. Happy reading! #TeamMrPopper

  19. THANKS! I might have had a (sleeping) marathon when I got home, but I think I might do a mini marathon today to knock out The Girl on the Train. It is SUPER intriguing.

  21. I may not have read more than like 50 pages yesterday, but with how much I slept post half-marathon, I am impressed with that.

  22. Believe me when I tell you that I have accepted your gift of ALL the naps. And they've already been cashed in :)

  23. You are seriously admirable for participating in this after running a half marathon! I'm doing my first 10k in two weeks, and I'm nervous yet excited, but I know I'm going to be exhausted after as it starts at 5am!

  24. I didn't participate as much as I would have liked, but I tried my hardest! You will do great on your 10k! Only 11 more Ks and it's a half marathon! If THAT doesn't scare you, I don't know what does. Thanks for stopping by!
