October 2014 Read-A-Thon is here :)

Dewey's October 2014 Read-a-Thon is almost here! Sign-ups opened yesterday, so here I am :)

The read-a-thon is Saturday, October 18th this year. When I first heard the date I originally figured that I wouldn't be able to join in, as it's Mum's birthday on the 19th, so chances were she'd plan something for the 18th. However, she had also mentioned wanting to join me for a read-a-thon, so I figured I'd ask her and see what happened.

Turned out, the more she thought about it, the more the thought of being part of a read-a-thon really appealed to her, so not only did she decided not to have any kind of celebration that day, she also decided to accept my invitation and come join me for the read-a-thon! My sister is coming along too, so we'll all disappear into my library for the read-a-thon, and only come back out for snacks and dinner! :)

It's going to be totally awesome! I can't wait :)

This will be either my fourth or fifth seventh!!! read-a-thon... I'm loosing track. It's been a terrific experience each and every time. When we come a bit closer I'll write my usual "Dos and Don'ts" for the read-a-thon, but right now I just wanted to sign up and wave my flag.

Bring on October 18th! :-)
