Last week on Twitter, I heard about this crazy thing called “Dewey’s Read-a-Thon” from @the1stdaughter, @Vasilly, and @Wordlily. Twice a year, in October and April, bloggers across the internet read for 24 hours straight, while blogging about what they are reading, visiting other readers blogs and participating in mini-challenges. Some people even sign up to be cheerleaders to encourage readers along the way.
This all sounded too good to be true. I simply have to spend my whole Saturday reading and talking to other people about books? There are even prizes! Seemed like sweet deal, so I signed up.
Now comes the tricky part… what books should I add to my “to read” stack? Working for a publisher, I read a lot of books for my job. I enjoy getting to experience stories in every stage, from unedited first draft to the final product. Despite the fact that I read new books with every season, I still feel I have barely skimmed the surface of the catalog of books that Peachtree publishes, which brings me to my point… I have decided that I am going to read as many of our Peachtree books as possible in 24 hours. Do you have a favorite Peachtree book that you think I should read? Take a look through our website or YA catalog and let me know what you think I shouldn’t miss on this little literary adventure of mine.
But wait! There is more! Carmen Agra Deedy (14 Cows for America) and Randall Wright (A Hundred Days from Home) are working on a new middle reader book and I just happen to have a copy of the manuscript, which will be item #1 on my Read-a-Thon “to-read” list. I am really looking forward to seeing what Deedy has up her sleeve for her first foray into the world of middle readers, so be sure to check back on Saturday to hear all about it, and of course, to cheer on me and the other Read-a-Thon participants.
You'd better read Eleanor's Story if you haven't yet!
I know! It is definitely going to be the 2nd book I read. I'm excited about it. I love memoirs.
I'm just now seeing this, but I'm so glad my little tweet got you interested! Can't wait to see what you read! So much fun!
