Dewey's 24 hour readathon is taking place this Saturday!

One of my favorite days of the year is happening tomorrow! It's readathon day!

If you are unaware of readathon, it's basically that participants across the globe sit and read for 24 hours straight. Or try to. It's a pretty impressive feat to make it 24 hours. My personal best is not anywhere near that. Or if you want to double your fun, you sign up to be a reader AND a cheerleader. Cheerleaders are sorted into teams (I'm #TeamGoldfinch!) and you are given a group of readers to cheer on and encourage in their quest for 24 hour domination. I obviously love reading, but cheering is my jam. There are also PRIZES, twitter chats, mini challenges and more! So you might see some extra action from me here on the blog, on instagram or on twitter. I will be on twitter A LOT this weekend.

Major props go our to Andi, Heather, Katie and everyone who puts an astounding amount of time and energy to get this enterprise up off of the ground twice a year. We all appreciate it greatly!

All of the information that you could ever need is on their wonderful website and don't forget to use the hashtag! #readathon.

My TBR stack for readathon is pretty small because I'm probably going to focus my energy on cheering, but what I do have I am excited for:

I was supposed to be done with this a few days ago for Jamie's Inklings discussion but I fell behind due to work insanity. Will be finishing up this guy first and then getting over to Jamie's blog to discuss!

I walked past this book in the library and I feel like I heard good things about it from people (I feel like maybe Julianne or Shannon) So I thought I'd give it a whirl.

I am so so so so excited for this book. Got approved for the ARC on Netgalley and I can barely wait until Saturday to get my hands on it. It will be grand! (I hope! Fingers crossed)
