Dewey Read-a-Thon: October 2011

It's that time of year! It's Dewey's 24-hour read-a-thon!
I love read-a-thons. I don't have a job at the moment, and I'm not in school, so I pretty much just sit at home and read. That's both good and bad.
It's good because, well, I get to read.
And it's bad because, well, sometimes, I get distracted. So, hopefully this will motivate me to knock a few books off my tbr pile.

I'll update this post every few hours with stats on my progress.

Hope you're all participating. Good luck if you are! :)

Update 1 (11:37am; 12 hours into the read-a-thon):
So, I haven't done any reading yet.
Wait, wait! Don't yell at me! It's partly because it started at 11pm for me, and I was pretty tired. But now that I'm awake, I plan on doing ALL OF THE READING. Plus, I think I'll be able to do a lot of reading done in 12 hours, dontcha think?
Hopefully, my next update will be impressive. You can also follow my progress on my Twitter.

Update 2 (5:59pm; 20 hours into the read-a-thon):
Man, I have been bad at this reading thing. I've just finished my first book. Blah. Hope to do a lot more reading in the next 4 hours.

  5. Cheering my way around again to find out how you are doing! Read, read read!

    Any book that you can see!

    I was in that jobless, school-less state for a while. I read lots but also got distracted, too! I hope you're having a really fun readathon so far.


    Distractions are totally cool - they keep you from getting eyestrain! :D


  8. Hahah! Thanks guys! It's so awesome to have you all cheering me on.

  9. Don't be so hard on yourself! You're doing great!

    Books are the thing you crave
    Cheerleading is all the rave
