I can’t believe the read-a-thon is only two weeks away! Are you as excited as I am?! Since the read-a-thon is getting close, now’s the time to officially sign up if you plan on participating.
The Read-a-thon will start: April 10th at 5am Pacific (1pm GMT). You can click over to the start times page to check the starting time in your timezone. Remember that if it’s more convenient to you, you could start either earlier or later, as well as participate for only part of the 24 hours. Very few people make it through the entire 24-hour period without sleeping, so don’t let that discourage you! Sleep is definitely allowed.
For more information on the Read-a-thon, you can read our FAQ. If you have a question that isn’t answered there, you can leave us a comment or e-mail DeweyReadathon at gmail. We’ll try to get back to you as soon as possible!
Sign ups for being a cheerleader will be posted in a few days.
We’ve already posted a Google Form for those interested in hosting a mini-challenge. If you’re new to the read-a-thon and are wondering what these mini-challenge things are, please check our FAQ!
Also, if you’d like to donate a prize, please e-mail us at DeweyReadathon at gmail. It’d be very much appreciated! Here’s a list of the prizes donated for the October 2009 Read-a-thon in case you’re wondering what to donate.
