I took forever to decide that I am going to participate in Dewey’s Read-a-Thon this Saturday, but here I am with my sign-up post!
Here are the questions I had to answer for myself.
Is it too late to sign up to be a cheerleader? I don’t have an answer to that, but I filled out the form anyway: Cheerleading Sign Ups.
How do you spell
readathon read-athon read a thon read-a-thon? Two dashes, unless it’s for the hashtag on Twitter and then it’s no dashes, #readathon.
What are the start and finish times for Missouri (Central Daylight Time)? 7 AM Saturday morning to 7 AM Sunday morning. In practice, that means I’ll be reading all day Saturday since I don’t get up earlier than 7 and don’t stay up much past 1 AM even to read.
- Brave Genius by Sean B. Carroll
- The Perfume Collector by Kathleen Tessaro
I have two books I want to read for Book Clubs this month, so those go on the list:
- Before the Mayflower: A History of Black America by Lerone Bennett Jr. (for our Diversity Book Club)
- Apron Anxiety by Alyssa Shelasky (for The Kitchen Reader)
It’s always good to have a YA novel in the mix:
- Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
Sometimes, an inspiring book works best for me:
- The Thank You Economy by Gary Vaynerchuk
A book about books would be appropriate:
- The Little Guide to Your Well-Read Life by Steve Leveen
Do you have books to suggest? Will you be doing Dewey’s Read-a-Thon?
