It's a bit over a week until Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon on Saturday, APRIL 28, 2018.
Reader Sign-ups are open:
There are over 700 people signed up already.
I've made a tradition of reading the 2018 Caldecott Award winner and some of the Caledcott Honor books as a change of pace between novels during the Spring Deweys. You can find the winners of the Caldecott, Newbery and other awards from http://www.ala.org/news/press-releases/2018/02/american-library-association-announces-2018-youth-media-award-winners
This is nicely compatible with the low-key Readathon I'm planning, since there is also a visiting scholar at my synagogue and the local Earth-Day celebration competing for my attention. I don't expect I'll actually read much, since I'd rather spend my time social media-hopping and cheering others on.
I'm on track (planned at least 150 pages per day) for the Pre-Readathon #2: Read 1,000 Pages In A Week challenge (in preparation for Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon).
Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon takes place April 28. Go to http://www.24hourreadathon.com/april-2018-reader-sign-ups/ to sign up.
