In a week and a half (give or take) I will be participating in Dewey’s Read-a-Thon.
If luck is with me, I’ll have a full day of uninterrupted reading. If luck is not with me, the reading will be punctuated by cries, laughter, and requests for snacks from my children. Either way, I’m ready. I have stacks of books to read and I am already doing a reading challenge I found on some other site (I’d link to it, but I don’t remember where I saw it or when.) The challenge there is to read 50 books in a year.
When I decided to make that a personal challenge of my own, I figured it would be a piece of cake. After all, I read constantly and I can go through as many as 10 books in a week, depending on what I’m reading and how much time I have.
It never occurred to me that 50 books in a year would be difficult. Yet here I am, already past the midpoint, still only 22 books into the challenge. I have until the end of July.
The read-a-thon seemed like the perfect opportunity for me to get caught up. It’s also a great chance for me to make my move here in doing book reviews. It’s something I have been wanting to do but wasn’t sure how to segue into it.
So check back here on April 10th, as I review book after book in a 24-hour reading frenzy. I’ll either have some really great stuff to bring to the conversation, or I’ll be wondering why I thought a read-a-thon would be a fun thing to do.
