October 17th-18th

Yes, it's that time of year again :) Dewey's 24 hour read-a-thon is just around the corner! October 17th-18th to be exact. Can't remember if the starting time has been announced yet, but it's usually noon UTC, so that's what I'm going with.

Of course I will be participating again - it's one of my favourite events :)

Once again, I will be joined by my Mum and two sisters. This year Rebekka's sister-in-law will be coming along as well. It's her first time participating in the read-a-thon, so I hope it'll be as good an experience for her as it has been for the rest of us. It'll be the tenth (I think) time I participate at all, and the third time I'll be reading with company - it's a LOT cozier with company :)

So I'll be spending the next almost-month brainstorming ideas for books to read (not sure what it says about me that I already have about 20 possibilities) and snacks to buy/bake. As per usual I'll spend the morning doing something active (to counteract all the sitting and eating I'll be doing for the rest of the day) and getting the crock-pot ready with something delicious for dinner, so we won't have to spend time preparing that once the reading has started.

It'll be awesome!

If you have suggestions of short'ish books / quick reads you'd recommend, I'm always very interested :)

Since you are participating in the Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon tomorrow, we would like to invite you as our group is reading for a cause this time around. We created a campaign that will run all 24 hours tomorrow, wherein readers can donate as little or as much as they want, to benefit PencilswithPromise.org. 100% of the funds go directly to them. Here is the link to our campaign:
https://fundraise.pencilsofpromise.org/fundraise/team?ftid=61000

Of course, to make it even more fun for the readers, we have a few "perks" and giveaways for our donors, thanks to our sponsors like Out of Print! Any amt will be greatly appreciated, but if you can't, your support is still important to us :)
