Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon is taking place tomorrow and I excited that I have the day free and can take part. It's a fun event and brings camaraderie to an reading which is generally a solitary activity. I have selected some book candidates for the day and am just going to let myself pick what looks good in the moment. I also have Americanah on audio for when I need a movement break, dog walk or just break to do some things around the house.
As I have done in past readathons, I will be reading for charity again. As many of my blog readers know, I adopted a dog, Prince, from the ASPCA in October. As I looked back over my posts from last year, I realized that I adopted Prince the night before the October 2013 Readathon. In honor of that and all the happiness he has brought to my life, I will be donating to the ASPCA for this readathon.
One thing I hope to do a bit differently this year (and some of this will be mandated by Prince) is to walk at regular intervals throughout the day. I am addicted to my Fitbit and don't want to drop my step count for the day! I think the walks will help break up the day and keep me reading longer.
Good luck with the readathon if you are participating! You can check my progress on Twitter , Instagram and of course, this blog.
