O.K., I'm In

I have been very tentative to officially join Dewey's Read-a-thon because I know I won't be able to read for 24 hours straight. But, I just couldn't take it anymore listening to the excitement on everyone else's blog. So, count me in! I don't know how much I'll be able to read at all since I have been sick. But, I will read as much as I can and check in at the site to see what's going on with everyone else. I think I'll try to read as much as I can from my tbr stacks for some of the challenges I've joined. I have still yet to even choose books for the OUAT challenge! So, we'll see how it goes. If I just get a book or two read, I'll be happy. I have also decided that I would like to make a donation to a literacy organization. I'm leaning towards First Book right now. Since I'm not sure how much I'll read, I think I'll just make a donation to the charity instead of basing it on how many books or how many pages I read. Good luck to everyone and Happy Reading!

Ooh, good luck! Have fun. I am, once again, working the weekend of the Readathon. :(
But I'll be popping in to check up on everybody's progress!

Eva, I know it'll be fun! I'm looking forward to it.

Melanie, I've always had to work or had other responsibilities during the read a thons in the past. I know how you feel.

Good luck and have fun! We had other plans so I can't join in, but I will try to stop by and cheer you on.

Good luck to you, Lisa! The chances of me getting to participate tomorrow are slim and I'm truly jealous.

I'm thrilled you'll be participating, Lisa! If you want to cheerlead (you signed up to cheerlead, but maybe it was a mistake...it's a lot to read *and* cheerlead!), please shoot me an email at DeweyReadathon(at)gmail. I like to touch base with all cheerleaders. :-)
