Dewey's Readathon is Upon Us!

The Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon is fast approaching people! From 8 AM Saturday to 8 AM Sunday, I will be devouring words like a crazy person. Granted, I have a morning shift Saturday at the library and will probably pass out around midnight Sunday because I NEED SLEEP, but that's ok. One of the best things about the Dewey's Readathon is that it's a judgment free zone. You read however much you want for however long you want. My hope is to get through a couple books, but I have a pretty big, varied stack in the hopes of avoiding a reading rut.

I have a couple novels, Nova Ren Suma's The Walls Around Us and Katherine Howe's The Appearance of Annie Van Sinderen.


I have a short story collection, Shirley Jackson's The Lottery and Other Stories, and an essay collection, When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris. I've started both collections and am loving them so far, plus the shorter format means I can dive in and out of these with relative ease (readathon success is all about strategy, people!).


I also have a couple graphic novels, Scott Snyder's Wytches and the second book in John Lewis's March trilogy.


Like I said, I'll be happy to get through a couple of these during the readathon. I'll also try to spend some of my readathon time supporting other bloggers.

Happy thon, everyone!
