Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon

Just recently I found out about the Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon, that apparently is a huge thing.
Because I am a newcomer in the book blogging world, and also because I am greedy, I want to bite a piece of the readathon cake, which promises to be quite interesting considering my read list!

Write Good or Die by multiple authors (173 pages) REVIEW
A Tale of a Tub by Jonathan Swift (158 pages)
Sandwiches by Sarah Tyson Heston Rorer (128 pages)
The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe (46 pages)
The Battle of the Books by Jonathan Swift (23 pages)

As you can see, all the works are not too voluminous. But, by the descending page number of the books I picked, you can also see how nervous I am about the upcoming ordeal! I don't want to fail, no-no-no, especially not at my first time! So this is why I picked some small pieces, no more than 50 pages, in order to get at least 3 out of 5 books done!

Here, as well as in my recently created Twitter account (@olga_rabo), I'll be making updates on  my progress and results! I am extremely excited and am very looking forward to sharing this experience with other participants!

Who else is taking part in the Readathon? Share your book lists!


  1. Hi there,

    Welcome to Dewey's Read-a-thon. Without promising too much, I can say that you are going to have an amazing time! I was a reader for the very first time back in October and now I’m reading again, but also cheering as captain and hosting a mini-challenge. Dewey’s Read-a-thon is one of the best book events I know and I love that I was able to come back again this time. The wonderful thing is that you can't loose. You can't do anything wrong, is just about having fun and read! :)

    I hope you have a fantastic first Read-a-thon and I promise I will cheer for you all the way through! #TeamMarquez

    1. Thank you for warm welcoming, Eeyorenyk!
      I just made a first break from reading my first Readathon book, covered nearly a half already!!

  2. Short books are definitely a good bet! Hope you're having fun so far! I look forward to the Readathon all year. Happy reading!

  3. 2 - 4 - 6 - 8 - Who do we appreciate? DEWEY!

    So glad to hear that you’re still hanging. It’s great you already read half a book - Or maybe more at this time? :) I have done pretty great myself, if I can be so selfish and honest for a moment. #LOL

    I’m not sure what time it’s where you’re at but in my country we’ve passed what’s called 7 PM in a lot of countries. Or just 7 at night. The sun is starting to disappear very slowly and the weather is great. I hope you’ll have a great afternoon/night/whatever it is in your country! :)

  4. Hi! Welcome to Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon. I'm happy you're joining us! You do have a very interesting selection of books, how are you liking them so far? Don't worry about failing, just have fun and enjoy the experience, I'm sure you'll do great! I hope you have a fantastic time this readathon and I'll be cheering you on! :) #TeamMarquez
