It's almost time for the Spring Read-a-thon on the 26-27th of April 2014!
For the third time running (I participated last April and October) I'm spending a weekend reading non-stop - I am of course talking about Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon. It kicks off at 2 PM in Denmark (noon in London, 5 AM in LA, 11 PM in Sydney, etc) and lasts for precisely 24 hours.
If you want to spend your weekend reading but also incredibly socially through your blog/twitter/etc. then join up here! (Note that there are 2 sign ups - 1 for you in general and 1 for where you want the cheerleaders to aim their cheers).
You can also sign up to be a cheerleader, donate prizes or host Hourly Challenges :) Personally I'd love to cheer but I just know I'll be so busy reading I can't promise to devote time. I will instead do my very best to have an occasional look at the tag on twitter and give some cheering response to other readers.
So far throughout the read-a-thons I've read 7 books pr 24 hours.
I've got a few ideas what to read for this one, but nothing is certain yet. I like to have a nice little pile of books lined up in all sorts of genres and lengths so I have something to chose between. I do strive for them all to be easy reads though. I'm gonna go with library books again this year and it's just about time to start ordering them home.
I usually read from the starting time till around 2 AM and then crash for my needed 8 hours of sleep and then carry on reading till the finish time at 2 PM Sunday the 27th. I applause those who manage to read for the full 24 hours, but I know from personal experiences that my body takes a very long time to get back on schedule if I do that and Monday is a work day, so that's a no can do.
