Happy Friday! Only one more day until Dewey’s Readathon!
Not only is tomorrow the readathon, but I’ll be going to my favorite beer fest too! A perfect day, if you ask me. Luckily my start time is bright and early at 7 AM and the event doesn’t start until late afternoon, giving me plenty of time to read with a perfectly timed dinner break.
I’m a little disappointed that I won’t be able to read the full 24 hours (or attempt to), but I’ll still be reading most of the day. And besides, the whole point of the readathon is to celebrate our favorite hobby and connect with other readers, and that’s exactly what I’ll be doing!
I first participated in a Dewey’s Readathon in April, but even with one under my belt, I’ve learned a few things about the process. Firstly, don’t take it too seriously! If you want to spend more time connecting with readers and blogging, do that, or if you just want to read, that’s ok too. There are no rules – it’s your readathon, so make it your own!
Tonight, I’ll be spending a little extra time browsing participating blogs and posting on the Goodreads Group. I’ll be posting on Instagram and Twitter, as well as the blog, throughout the day, so I might go ahead and outline a few posts to save time and line up my Instagram props to have at the ready.
This time, since we’re so close to Halloween, I decided on a Spooktober reading list. I LOVE themed reading lists – they make reading more exciting and more challenging. It’s been a long time since I’ve read a horror novel, but of course now I’m totally obsessed! So it’s not too surprising that I’ve already read a few from my Readathon TBR…
More importantly though, what will you be eating!? Last readathon I went a little crazy and ended up spending a few hours in the kitchen, chopping veggies and listening to an audiobook. This year, since I have such limited time, I pre made Sriracha Chicken Quesadillas last night. Yum!
