Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-Thon is happening this Saturday, April 27! For those who don’t know, this is an event where crazy book-loving types set aside an entire day solely for the pleasure of reading. As you might suspect, the event lasts for 24 hours, although you’re not obligated to participate (or, ahem, stay awake) for the whole thing. There are fun challenges (with prizes!) throughout the day, and it’s just an overall good time. I’m definitely looking forward to participating this year, although I’ll admit frankly that I don’t plan to stick around for all 24 hours! I’ll just play it by ear. Stop by on Saturday for my progress post — and sign up if you haven’t done so already!
Also, my local library is having its semi-annual sale this weekend! There’s a preview night on Thursday, and then the actual sale will take place Friday through Sunday. I may or may not be using a vacation day so that I can go to the sale on Friday and visit it early and often. *blush* So all in all, I anticipate a pretty awesome bookish weekend!
