Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon

I will be participating in this, my first, 24 Hour Read-a-Thon. I am really excited and hoping I will be able to stay awake. It may sound a little boring that I am hoping to finish the 2 reads that I have already started, but they are both great books, so I'm looking forward to completing them! If by chance that I feel like a change, I'm going to look for a shorter read.  These are the two books I plan on finishing and where I'm starting with them at 8AM.

The Autobiography of Henry VIII - Margaret George
  • starting on page 68 of 930 pages
The Pillars of the Earth (audiobook/reread) - Ken Follett
  • starting at 19 hours and 32 minutes of 40 hours 23 minutes total.

I have a lot of driving to do today so that will be when I switch to the audiobook.

This should be fun!


  1. No Should about WILL be fun!! Hope you have a great day today, and enjoy your first readathon. They're addicting! ;)

  2. Hi Trish!
    Thanks for the cheer! I was out driving most of the day so I was listening to Pillars of the Earth. It's so good!

  3. I'm here to cheer! Those sound like two books you can really sink into for the readathon. Hope it's going well!

  4. I love audiobooks too, I'm listening to those in the car more now than music! A good reader just makes it wonderful! Hope you're enjoying your first time, and that we'll see you again! Here's another cheer for you!
