It’s Sign-Up Time!

April 9th is coming up soon!  We’re opening up Read-A-Thon sign ups for readers today.  Be on the look out for Mini-Challenge Host sign-ups and Cheerleader sign-ups coming soon.

If you want to sign-up to read during Dewey’s 24-hour Read-A-Thon, just sign the Linky below: (your URL doesn’t have to be a blog you write, it can be your FB profile, a twitter account, etc. Just somewhere we can follow your progress while you’re reading!)

Also, if there are any bloggers that would like to, we would love it if you could do a post just announcing that you’re reading and linking to this sign-up post, and encouraging your readers to do the same.  If you’re not comfortable doing that, please consider snagging one of our buttons and placing it somewhere on your blog, or create your own!  If you’re not comfortable with that, we’re still cool, no worries. *wink*

Thanks everyone!  We’re really looking forward to this year’s Read-A-Thon!

  1. I am actually a library cat. I live at Mineola Memorial Library. On behalf our our library’s reading team, I am signing up for this event. There will be a number of Team Mineola Readers who will log in and post during the Read-a-Thon. The Mineola librarians are organizing round-the-clock reading, and I know some of our readers plan to stay here all night. I am looking forward to the reading challenges and very excited about having company overnight!

  2. Signed up! When I was filling out the entry form after my name I hit tab and it skipped down to the October sign-up and I didn’t realize it…sorry >.< So my name is randomly on there because I wasn't paying attention. Looking forward to the readathon! Signed up thanks to janicu @ livejournal.

  3. I found the information I need in the FAQs: April 9, 2011, 1200 GMT. May I recommend that, this time around, instead of clunky tables as the time grows near, you just provide the data in a prominent place and give people a link to convert it? I know the tables confused me no end!

  4. Hey there! I have to step back this time. A sudden change in programs will not allow me to be around. Too bad! I hope the rest of you have lots of fun!
    Feel free to remove my link (I’m No. 84, I think)

  5. *sigh* Unfortunately I need you to take my name off the list. As it turns out, I’m going to be packing for an (unforeseen at the time of my original sign-up, but incredibly awesome) move. Next time!

  6. I’m really excited to participate (for the first time this year)! :-D
    I’d love to start reading right now…

    Only downside is, I have to spend at least 4 hours of the read-a-thon at work… I hope I can get some reading in even there.

  7. I’ve been neglecting my blog and my reading for months and can’t think of a better way to kick-start both. Really excited to have an excuse to do nothing but read for a full 24 hours!

  8. Looking forward to this! Need to get my reading back on track for my ‘off the shelf’ challenge, so now I’ve the perfect excuse to sit up in my room all day reading (and dodging the housework ;) )

  9. So excited that I actually have the time this weekend to do this! Hooray! I have my stack of books, my diet dr. pepper is in the fridge, roll on Saturday!

  10. This is gonna be awesome! I’m going to have to read some of my case books for school too (hope that’s ok), but I have so many TBRs to work on!

  11. Unbelievable. Less than two hours after I signed up for the Readathon, I received a phone call from my father about the death of an aunt of mine. The funeral, out-of-town, is set for 10 a.m. on Saturday morning.

  12. This is our first time to join the Dewey 24hour readathon challenge, so please bear with us. I’ve already indicated through the weblink above what my planned set of books for Saturday are. =) Excited to meet everyone who’s joining!

  13. I’m doing it, but – as you said I could do 12-and-12 – I hope you won’t mind if I actually split it a bit more and make it 6-6-6-6, beginning tomorrow (Friday) – it will mean I’ll actually take in everything I’m reading and won’t need to take extra pain medication to make it through the time. I hope that that’s all right.

  14. Just found out about this today. Sounds neat! I have to read 42 books before the 22nd, so hopefully this will help me with that. Sounds like fun!

  15. I can’t wait to get started! I have a stack of books lined up and ready to go. I have a blog post started with my list of books and will update it with last year’s outcome and this year’s goals. Let’s get ready to read!

  16. Only just noticed this, the day before it starts! I’ll be reading and posting, not sure what I’ll be reading yet. I think my plans are changing for tomorrow morning so that I can get everything ready for 1pm over here in the UK.

  17. Hah, learned about the read-a-thon just in the nick of time to sign up and take part. I can wait; this is an amazing idea! :)

  18. Hello! I just would like to give an enormous thumbs up for
    the great data you will have right here on this
    post. I will likely be coming again to your weblog for more soon.
