Preparation for Dewey’s Read-a-thon, April 2018

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon badge

Dewey’s read-a-thon is my favourite reading challenge and runs twice a year–in April and October. It runs for 24 hours, but participation for the full length is optional. Which is a good thing, because this round will be kicking off at 10 PM on Saturday 28 April for the east coast of Australia. As usual, I plan to be going to bed around then, but will be up early to cram as much reading as possible into my waking hours.

I’m on top of my review reading at the moment, which leaves my schedule clear to continue powering through the shortlists of the Hugo Awards. I have quite a few of the nominated works out from the library, as you can see:

Dewey's readathon, City of Stairs, Robert Jackson Bennett, Kim Stanley Robinson, New York 2140, Crash Override, Zoe Quinn, In Other Lands, Sarah Rees Brennan

My goal is simply to get through as many as I can. Not sure how far I’m going to get, considering the size of some of them. It’s a shame I’ve already finished up the novella category–that would have been perfect for the read-a-thon. Fortunately, I still have plenty of back issues of Uncanny Magazine for shorter stuff.

If you need to tame your own Mt TBR or are looking to connect with a great community of book bloggers, I do hope you’ll join me. It’s not too late! You can sign up, follow on Twitter, join the Goodreads group or any combination of the three. If you’ve already signed up, I’d love to hear about what you’ll be reading.

    Have fun! I will also be participating 🙂 I joined last year for the first time. I don’t do the full 24 hours because of sleep but try

      It’s good to go at a pace that suits you.

      I’m so glad you’re joining us again! It really is a lot of fun. Do you have a TBR pile picked out already?
