This is just a little post to let you know about the Dewey’s 24-hour read-a-thon I plan on participating in on Saturday, 23 April. This will be the second time I take part in this particular read-a-thon, and I am thrilled to be signing up again since the last one didn’t go as well as I planned (I came down with a major migraine).
A 24 hour read-a-thon is a reading challenge where everyone participates at the same time. For 24 hours, people from around the world read books, and post it on their blogs and various social media platforms; as well as visit other participants’ virtual online homes in order to encourage and motivate one another to read.
Please check out Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon for more information, or better yet, sign up and join me in this challenge. This is a great way to get some reading done to boost your Goodreads reading challenge if you have fallen behind like so many of us tend to do, when life turns hectic and we put reading on the back burner. The read-a-thon also hosts mini challenges on the blog, where you can win some lovely prizes, like this book below which I won in an Instagram Shelfie challenge:
“NO. No no no. I don’t want to screw you. I just love you. When did who you want to screw become the whole game? Since when is the person you want to screw the only person you get to love? It’s so stupid, Tiny! I mean, Jesus, who even gives a fuck about sex?! People act like it’s the most important thing humans do, but come on. How can our sentient fucking lives revolve around something slugs can do. I mean, who you want to screw and whether you screw them? Those are important questions, I guess. But they’re not that important. You know what’s important? Who would you die for? Who do you wake up at five forty-five in the morning for even though you don’t even know why he needs you? Whose drunken nose would you pick?!” ― John Green, Will Grayson, Will Grayson #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstagrammer #instabooks #instareads #bibliophile #booknerdigans #readandseek #southafricanblogger #bookish #books #read #SAreaders #booklifestyle
