Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon was begun in 2007, and it has continued on, twice a year, in the spring and the fall (US seasons) every year since it was first created.
Last year a new tradition was started, Dewey’s 24-Hour Reverse Readathon. The Reverse Readathon was designed to be a laid-back readathon that would take place toward the end of summer, with fewer hourly posts and less stress for everyone involved. It was thought that by beginning the readathon twelve hours earlier than usual, readers outside the US might be encouraged to join in and read together.
So when will this Reverse Readathon be? It will begin Friday, August 7th at 8 PM EST and ending Saturday, August 8th at 8 PM EST. To figure out what time the readathon begins in your part of the world, look here.
A readathon is a great opportunity to spend solid blocks of time reading. For us in The Classics Club, it might be a chance to finish a classic book or two from our lists.
