The next Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon has been scheduled for April 21, 2012!!!
I'm so excited! There's so much planning to do! Food to prepare! Books to pile up!
The last read-a-thon, in October 2011, was my first one. I didn't even have a book blog yet at the time, so I participated on my genealogy blog. I stayed up for the whole 24 hours, read 7 whole books, and participated in 4 mini-challenges.
Speaking of challenges, I'm thinking of hosting a mini-challenge this year. I don't really understand the whole process with hosting mini-challenges and giving away prizes... can I just host a challenge and then send out the prize myself, I wonder?
Let me know if you'll be participating in the read-a-thon so I can keep an eye on your blog and cheer you on! I don't really spend much time on Twitter or anything since I prefer to read pretty much non-stop, but I do pick out blogs to follow beforehand, and I keep a browser open with a tab for each one so I can easily check on them each time I take a break to give my blogging updates.
Now, on a totally separate topic: I'm sorry I haven't been around so much! I'm reading a book right now which I am not enjoying, and it has been taking me forever, and keeping me from doing any blogging because I'm just not feeling inspired. I know I should have given up, but by the time I realised how little I was liking the book I was more than halfway through so I HAD to finish! Anywho, hopefully I'll be done tonight and then things will get back to normal. :) So bear with me!
