Dewey's Read-a-Thon will be April 21

I’m going to again participate in Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon as a Reader. I believe this will be the 4th time that I have taken part in this Read-a-Thon. This year, I’m going to be offline for most of the read-a-thon as the 21st is the first day of my vacation and we are taking a road trip through California, Nevada, and the surrounding area. One advantage of this is that I will get huge chunks of uninterrupted reading time without the distraction of the Internet. The big disadvantage is that I will find it difficult to update my blog with status posts—or to check on the other readers—or to participate in the challenges. So, one way in which I will try to post about what I’m reading will be to use my Blackberry to Tweet and make Facebook updates. I’ll also investigate the possibility of posting to my blog with the Blackberry.

So—I’m really happy to be reading along with everyone else this year, and the challenge of reading while traveling (though not while driving since it’s hubby who will be behind the wheel) should make this a memorable read-a-thon. Can’t wait until next weekend.

  1. Correction -- this will be the 6th time that I've participated in Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-Thon. Only one more day and I'm really looking forward to it.
