Dewey's 24 hour Reverse Readathon

Visit Dewey's Readathon website for more information


Dewey's 24 Hour Reverse Readathon is happening this weekend--Friday, August 7 at 8:00 p.m. EST to Saturday, August 8 at 8:00 p.m. I have decided I want to give it a shot--this is my penultimate weekend before heading back to school physically. 
I will be participating via Twitter and Instagram. I will update this post throughout the readathon as well. Check back on my updates to see how I do. 

Are you going to participate? Please let me know if you are going to join me. 

Recap--How It Went

From Friday evening to Saturday evening, I participated in the Dewey readathon. I did not read the full 24 hours--I cannot stay up overnight any longer. Here is a post I put up on Instagram to sum up how I did:

I ended up reading the following during the readathon:
  • The Alice Network by Kate Quinn (just over 100 pages)
  • #NotYourPrincess: Voices of Native American Women by Lisa Charleyboy (finished, 109 pages)
  • Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates (45 pages)
  • The Voting Booth by Brandy Colbert (50 pages)
  • New Kid by Jerry Craft (finished, 256 pages)
I am quite pleased with my progress--this has been a rough weekend personally so the reading was able to distract me a bit.  I am also working to increase my diversity in my reading so other than The Alice Network, I really wanted to read BIPOC books and I succeeded in this goal of mine as well. Now, I need to finish up the ones I started and work on the reviews. 

Bingo Board

What about my bingo board, how did that go?

I did not manage to get a complete blackout I hoped to do but that is because I did not want to NOT read The Alice Network first so I could not pick my first book blindfolded. I also did not read a book about winter. I am please with my accomplishments. 

How did it go for you? Were you able to get one of the coveted blackouts? Share below what your favorite read was during this time period.
