- Lunch date with my two best girlfriends!
- Reading, reading and more reading.
- Your mission is to spend the next 24 hours reading -–read anything and as much as you can!
- When you’re not reading, join in on mini-challenges scheduled throughout the day.
- Win bookish prizes!
- Watch the official Dewey’s Twitter, Goodreads and blog for updates, challenge instructions
- There is still time to sign up!
- Already have plans tomorrow, that don’t involve reading? That’s okay because there will be another Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon in October.
Now anybody that knows me knows I am a planner, so, of course, I had to prep for my reading binge.
Trying to Plan for Mood Reading
Picking which books to read is the tough part because I am going to be driven by my mood. I picked plenty to keep me busy and a good combination of fiction, fantasy and short stories. If I’m not in the mood for a particular book or genre, I’m going to have to be okay with putting the book to the side and picking up a new one.
Books currently in my Dewey’s stack of potential reads:
- The Bloody Chamber: And Other Stories: 75th-Anniversary Edition by Angela Carter
- Fly on the Wall: How One Girl Saw Everything by E. Lockhart
- The Miserable Mill (A Series of Unfortunate Events, #4) by Lemony Snicket
- The Austere Academy (A Series of Unfortunate Events, #5) by Lemony Snicket
- In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom by Yeonmi Park
- The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro
- Great & Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
- The Complete Grimm’s Fair Tales by Jacob & Wilhelm Grimm
- Animal Farm by George Orwell
Don’t Forget to Eat
I will be going for lunch with friends, taking a break from reading in the afternoon. But I am still prepared with various snacks throughout the day & night. I got my cheddar popcorn, chocolate, Rockets, trail mix — heck, I better throw some healthy stuff in there like an apple, avocado, and banana.
When I Need a Break From Reading
- Updating this blog. Check for fun bookish updates in tomorrow’s post.
- Twitter, Instagram & Goodreads. For more frequent updates, follow me @myareads and at www.goodreads.com/mya_reads
- Mini-challenges. I am curious what kind of book shenanigans the facilitators of Dewey’s Readathon have planned for us.
- Audiobooks. Since I am not being a hermit and have people to see and errands to run, I will be using audiobooks during the times I am unable to read physical books.
Wish me luck and happy reading!
