It’s that time again and I’m gearing up to participate in the bi-annual Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-Thon! I had such a blast last time that I honestly can’t wait. I think I may have even convinced my Mom in participating with me this year. That will make things even more fun. I am currently preparing my books and thinking over the snacks I’d like to have on hand. So far I have two books picked out and will soon be deciding on a few more. I’ll post all of my participant information closer to the start date.
For those interested in participating this time, please check out the information below. And also be sure to check out Alexis’ great tips for the read-a-thon! As someone with more experience than me with the read-a-thon, her tips came in handy the last time I participated. I HOPE that some of you will be joining in the fun this go round. It really is great fun and promotes such camaraderie among the blogosphere! For pertinent information on the Read-a-Thon, see the info below!
Information from Dewey’s Read-a-Thon Site:

October 22, 2011, starting at Noon GMT.
Here is a handy, simple-to-read time zone list.
You can expect a Read-a-thon every April and October.
Where can I sign up?
Once I sign up, what do I do next?
Keep your eye on this blog. In the days leading up to the Read-a-thon, we’ll probably post updates, last minute info, etc. The day of the read-a-thon, there will be a home base post. This is where you’ll find out about mini-challenges, prize winners, etc.
