Sunday Salon-Ready for the Dewey Marathon?

The Sunday

It's that time again for the Dewey 24 Hour Read-A-Thon. For me this will start at 8:AM on April 18th. Am I crazy?

No, just love to read and be with blogger friends that share the same idea of fun. I'll admit to having an eccentric and loving personality. But crazy? Only about books and reading whenever I can. I saw a lot of my blogger friends have already joined up so I know we will have fun writing on our blogs with updates.

Hannah, Ana and Trish define the role of a reader:

What is the role of a Reader?

People who sign up to be readers are committing to reading books, posting updates in their blogs, participating in mini-challenges when they choose to, and, if they need breaks, visiting the blogs of other readers and encouraging them. The most hardcore among us will stay up the entire 24 hours and do nothing but read and update, even going so far as to skip showering and eat meals while reading. However, not all of us are that hardcore, and it’s OK for you to customize this read-a-thon to meet your needs. All I ask is that you be honest in your updates, and that’s about the only rule for readers.

Updating for Readers: This should be individually customized. If you want to spend 5 or 10 minutes updating each hour or every 3 hours, that’s great. If you want to update whenever you feel like you need a break from reading, that’s great, too. If you want to just read and read for 24 hours straight and then write one big update, that’s also great. You do what works for you, OK?

It's time that I signed up for the Read-a-Thon...but where do I go?

Phew. Much as I love reading, I don't think I could manage this one. My all-nighter days (nights?) are long behind me! But have fun with it; it could be like a giant bookworm sleepover party. :-)
