Mark your calendars for October 13th!
That’s the second Saturday in October
for those of you not in front of a calendar right this very second.
What is Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon? For 24 hours, we read books, post to our blogs about our reading, and visit other readers’ blogs. We also participate in mini-challenges throughout the day. It happens twice a year, in April and in October.
It was created by the beloved Dewey (her blog has since been taken down, so the link won’t work). The first one was held in October 2007. Dewey died in late 2008. We’re still saddened by her absence, but the show must go on. The read-a-thon was renamed to honor its founder in 2009.
There is still time to volunteer to help.

This is my first time participating so I am going to be an informal cheerleader this year by visiting the readers blogs as I can without any set timetable. It seems lately whenever I sign up for a read-a-thon something goes crazy here at home that keeps me away from the books and my computer so I am going to see how this one goes. Fingers crossed October 13 in uneventful around here. 🙂
