2013 Spring Dewey's Read-a-thon
This is the second time in a row that I almost missed this read-a-thon! Last fall I almost missed it as well. What is wrong with me?
For those unfamiliar with Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon, you can read the full history here, but essentially it was started by Dewey in October 2007 in response to her husband and son going off for a 24-hour Comics Day. Dewey held three of these Read-a-thons before passing on in November 2008, and the tradition is now carried on by those who helped her with the Read-a-thons before her death.
The next Read-a-thon will be this Saturday, April 27th. Check out the official website for more information and for the sign-up forms. You can sign-up to be a reader, a cheerleader, and/or an "Hourly Challenge Host", or you may volunteer to donate a prize.
If you've never joined in on the fun, it's time you did! You don't have to commit to the entire 24 hours. The goal is to simply spend a day reading as much as you can, and to enjoy yourself. Come join us!
