One of the writers that I follow on Goodreads blogged about Dewey’s 24 hour Read-a-thon. I didn’t come across the site soon enough to participate in that event on April 26th, but loved the idea.

So I decided to do my own.

It won’t be 24 hours long, as I enjoy sleep far too much to stay up for a full day. My goal is to read 4 books in one day. I’ll be reading Lois Lowry’s The Giver series.

The first one will be a re-read for me (I’ve read it at least 4 times), but the other three are all new to me.

My personal read-a-thon will take place next weekend, on Saturday July 12th. I’ll be keeping you updated throughout the day on Facebook and Twitter.

If you guys want to join me in your own version of a read-a-thon on the same date, I’d love it if you would update me. Comment below or join in on the madness on Facebook and Twitter!

I’ve never done a one day reading goal like this. I am excited to see how much I can get read!
