Heeellloooo there bookworms! Do you know what's coming up in a MERE few weeks?

*drum roll please*

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon.

Of course there is barely anything else that is more decadent than reading bunches of books, chatting it up bleary-eyed with other book bloggers, and chowing up some nourishing (and maybe notso nourishing) snacks.

I'm doing my happy dance a la Snoopy style.

Please, do not confuse with this Snoop:

I'm getting myself prepared, perusing through my books, and making my stacks.  This year I want to hit it HARDCORE.  I've always participated but in a half-hearted-no-way-I'm-staying-up-past-midnight sorta way.  This year I'm going for it.  Or at least trying.  No comforts for me man.  I'll be calling it quits ONLY I can no longer turn a page and I'm beginning to semi-drool on myself.

Finally, because I cannot say it better than this man:

Who's coming with me?!


  1. I'm so excited!! Karen and I have booked our hotel for two nights and we plan to go see Jane Eyre on Friday night as a kick off! We won't be staying up the whole night but at least we'll be away from kids and have a hotel all to ourselves!!

  2. I'm so jealous that you're going it and I'm not! :( It's ironic that the one weekend I have plans in April is the weekend of the read-a-thon. BOO! Have fun, it's an absolute blast!!!

  3. I've never "officially" been able to participate because of school and being busy so I'm hoping I'll get to completely do the read-a-thon this time around!!

  4. I'm always a late signer-up! More than likely I'll be there.

  5. I had dreams all last night that that baby came early and I didn't get to have my spa day this Saturday or my readathon day next Saturday.


    And if she does--I'm with you. At least until I pass out from exhaustion. ;)


Talk to me!
