Who is in? You don't even HAVE to stay up all night...Dewey says it is okay to get some sleep...come on! (is that enough peer pressure for you!?!?)
I personally cannot wait! I have so many books to read, and the read-a-thon really helps in that process. I did it in June and it was so fun, really it was an amazing time of all of us bonding over books. Folks check on you, comment on your posts, and give you prizes. And I can ask my hubby (B) to watch the boys ALL DAY LONG! Oh, how much better does it get, it does get better....I can go to a coffee shop and read :) What a lovely treat.
Who is in?

For all the juicy details go over to lovely Dewey's page where she gives all the facts of the 24-hour-read-a-thon!!!

I admire all of you that can do these 24-hour read-a-thons. I have no stamina for that, maybe because I read all day long for work and think of my reading time as relaxation.

Hey I applied for this -

Reminder: This person goes around to visit everyone who signs the Mr Linkies to remind them of the read-a-thon in the few days before the event.

I think I can do that :)

I'll have to stop by your blog and find the post :) awesome!

Ramya- oh man!! I was hoping you would be able to do it :(
It would be so much more fun with you there too! :) I hope moving goes smoothly though, moving is so much work.

I'm out this time since I'll be out of town and computerless. I'm really sad that I won't even be able to cheerlead as the back and forth commenting with others (including you!) was one of my favorite parts last time. :( I'll be cheering you on in spirit!!
