The 24-Hour Read-a-thon this Saturday


Dewey at The Hidden Side of a Leaf is hosting a really great event this weekend--the 24 Hour Read-a-thon. I was hoping to be a "cheerleader" for this event, but I've got many kid-related scheduling conflicts--and I'm really sorry I'll miss it.

It starts on Saturday, October 20, at @ 2pm GMT, and I encourage anyone who has any time on Saturday to check out the details and find one of the many ways to participate.

And I'd love to hear who is planning to take part, and what your experiences are like if you do!

I don't know how many hours I'll be able to give to it---but I have to try! :D It turns out to be a pretty good day for it for me, at least.

heather--wish I could join in but will be carpooling kids around most of the day. I guess if I had really planned ahead I could have gotten some audiobooks lined up! Good luck and let me know how it goes :)
