Just 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.
