Read a Thon is Coming Up This Saturday!

Potential reads!
Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon is this Saturday! Yes, I am excited! I love the fact that everyone comes together from all over the world to read and I love that it gives me a chance to make a serious dent in my TBR pile all in one day. Usually I can get through around 3 books all in one day, while visiting many new-to-me blogs to boot. It's a fun day!

My start time is something awful like 6am PST so I will be starting a couple of hours late, probably more like 8-9am so if it's quiet around here on Saturday morning, don't worry, I'll show up! I will then usually read until about 11pm. The fiancee has been warned and the stack of reading material has been picked out (see above). Photo may be kinda crappy but there are lots of potential good reads in there and I can't wait to dig in!

Last read-a-thon I donated to charity while reading and enjoyed that so I will be doing that again. Here's the scoop: for each hour I read on Saturday I will donate five dollars to the American Red Cross and for every comment I get on my Read-a-Thon post on Saturday I will donate one dollar as well! So come back on Saturday and comment!

Will you be reading on Saturday?

  6. Darn, I really wanted to join this time but my daughter is coming home from college for the weekend so I won't get as much reading in. Boo. Well, looks like you have some really good books to keep you reading.

    Secret Daughter is a great read.

  8. Yay! Glad to see How To Love An American Man in your stack -- loved that story so much. It's really nice that you're donating money as you read, too -- very sweet. Love the idea of it! Hope I can make time to participate in a read-a-thon one of these years!

  9. I am always busy on Saturday mornings. However, I usually do read Saturday afternoons and evenings.

    I hope you reach your goal of three books. Happy Reading.

  10. I will be reading! YAY! And it starts at 6:00 for me, which means FIVE for you! That is awful. But morning is my favorite reading time, so I'll probably just go ahead and get up.

    Good luck with your pile!

  11. I'm doing it too, and it will be my first readathon ever, despite book blogging for over two years. I'm a somewhat slow reader though, so I won't be getting through three like you - I am impressed! LOL. Good luck and talk to you Saturday! :D

  16. I've signed up too, with the goal to read the whole 24 hours. Now that I'm 40 will my body let me do it? You'll have to stop by to find out ;)
