Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon

It's that time of year again!  Tomorrow is Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon.  I really enjoy participating in this.  Though I never read as much as I hope, I read much more than I usually do in a weekend and I like that.

This is me all prepared for the readathon.  I have chosen 4 books I really want to get through and that I think will be a good mix to keep me interested.  The first is The Midwife of Venice by Roberta Rich which I'm already halfway through.  The second is Hellgoing by Lynn Coady which is a collection of short stories.  This will be good for when I'm taking the kids to swimming lessons and I like to include one short story collection because I can read the stories in between other books or when I'm getting tired.  The third book is Caught by Lisa Moore, which is probably what I will start with since it looks to be the most serious of books I chose.  The fourth book is Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding which of course is highly anticipated.  I think this will be my motivation to push through the first three books!  I have also got a great selection of teas from Teavana to accompany my reading.

Are you participating in the readathon?  What do you plan to read this weekend?


  1. I've got a wedding to attend so I just may stop by a few blogs and cheer on the readers.

  2. I'm playing along and I cannot wait! :D I love this event. I love having the excuse to tell everyone to buzz off for the day, ha!

  3. Ooo, I see lots of familiar titles in your stack. I just finished Hellgoing a few days ago (some really strong - but not necessarily comfortable - stories in there). Hope you enjoy the rest of your RATing!
