24 Hour Read-a-Thon and giveaways

It is almost time for the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon and I'm so excited! The last time Dewey hosted this fun even was in June, and I did not participate, but I was a somewhat unofficial cheerleader. The read-a-thon is October 18th and will be starting at 5 am Pacific (or 7 am for those like me in the central time zone). Besides the fun of participating with other bloggers, there will be mini-challenges and prizes. Click here to read more.


If you are interesting in winning a signed copy of Joshua Henkin's Matrimony, head over to Trish's Reading Nook and Book Addiction to enter their giveaways.

I'm so excited about the Read-a-thon. Will you be able to participate this time?

Trish said...

Thanks for the mention for the giveaway. :) Also, you were an excellent sort of cheerleader last time. I probably won't even be able to do that this time since I'll be in College Station, but I'll be routing you on in spirit!!! Maybe I'll have to figure out how to leave comments with my phone. ;)

Nymeth--Yes, I am participating for real this time, and not just vicariously participating through others! :)

Trish--I'm still sad you won't be participating, and now that I think about it--I know the game will be on TV, so I might have to take some short breaks during reading to see what's going on!

That sounds fun...but tiring! I don't know if I could make it! :)

Trish said...

Hey chica--I left you something here

Dewey said...

Hooray! You can participate! I'm glad.

Tiffany-I don't know if I can make it either, but I'm going to try! :)

Dewey-Thanks for hosting...I'm really looking forward to it!
