Dewey’s 24 Hour Read A Thon ( ) is back!! I love doing this event because I get through a book or two in one day.

On October 26th the Challenge of reading ALL DAY long starts. During the bi-annual read-a-thon we will read books, post to our blogs, Facebook and Twitter or Goodreads about our reading, and visit other readers’ blogs. We will also participate in mini-challenges throughout the day to win prizes. (I love that part!) This event happens twice a year, in April and in October. It was created by a book lover named Dewey. The first one was held in October 2007. Dewey died in late 2008. The read-a-thon was renamed to honor its founder in 2009.

On October 26th the Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon ( ) will start at 5am for California. If you want to learn more and to sign up, click on the link. There is no money involved and it’s purely for the love of reading on your own pace, for as long or as little as you want.

Go to to learn more and to sign up! Every six hours I will (try to) post a reminder for you to check our book club website with the links to the hourly challenge and Mocha Girls Read challenges. Yes! You can win prizes if you join in.

You don't need to have a blog to participate.

This is an online event and the Dewey website is the host site you check in every couple of hours. This is the best event to get through a few books on your nightstand.


This year we are going to host a giveaway every 6 hours on our Meetup page. All you have to do is answer the questions when we start.
