My Own Readathon/Blogathon

I  missed the Dewey 24-Hour Read-a-thon last week-end so I've decided to make my own. 

Here is what I plan to do:

1. Read and blog for 24-hours over the next five days. Keep a log of the hours.
2. Walk or exercise for at least 10,000 steps each of these days, too. (Which will mean a lot of audiobook hours logged.)
3. Attempt to get a blackout on the Dewey BINGO form (See below)
4. For each book completed, write a blog review for it. Even if very short.

Possible books:
Yes Again, Yes (audiobook)
Inland (audiobook)
Mother Daughter Me (e-book)
Called (e-book)
Brave Face
The Thirteen Clocks

Stay Tuned!


  1. I was busy Sunday, so I only got 8,000 steps. I was a little over 10,000 yesterday. I had a really good week last week with 103,000 steps, but that's not normal for me.

  2. Fun! Good luck and happy reading! :D

  3. Ooh good luck with this! Looks fun!!

  4. This is a great plan! Have a wonderful time doing it.


I look forward to your comments and interactions! Join in the conversation.
