Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon Needs Your Help!

24readathon1Just in case you don’t know, the next Dewey’s Read-a-thon is set for Saturday, April 27th. Every six months, readers from all over the world get together and dedicate twenty-four hours to reading. For me, the read-a-thon is like Christmas. I get my reading stack and snacks together, then wake up early the day of the event to participate. I love it.

With that said, the lovely ladies behind the read-a-thon, Heather and Andi need your help. Prizes are a huge part of the read-a-thon and they’re given out to readers and cheerleaders alike. If you can, please consider donating a prize to this month’s event. It can be a set of bookmarks, a new ARC, book bundles, gift certificates, anything. Or you can become an angel – someone who pays for the shipping of a gift to an international winner. Shipping is anywhere from $10 to $30.

If this sounds like something you’re interested in, the form to donate is up.

Maybe you can’t be a reader in the read-a-thon this time around. If you have a few hours to spare the day of the event, why not consider becoming a cheerleader? Along with prizes, cheerleaders are what make this event great. You can cheerlead for as little as an hour – it all helps. The read-a-thon has spread to various platforms – Facebook, Twitter, and blogs, so it would be really nice to have a huge number of cheerleaders. If you can donate even an hour, please do.  You can find the sign-ups for cheerleaders here.

If you still haven’t signed up for the read-a-thon, that’s here too.

  1. Thanks for posting this! I can’t believe it’s almost time for Dewey’s 24-hour readathon. Just signed up to be a cheerleader – the kidlet has a bunch of things going on Saturdays, so unfortunately I won’t have time to participate as a reader, but cheerleading’s great fun!

  2. I am going to be a reader this time around, but I will probably consider giving a prize away too. Thanks for sharing this with us. I had no idea that it was coming up!

  3. I won’t be able to formally participate but will be there to root everyone on from the sidelines, with a comment or two!
