Read-a-thons are like Christmas to me and I love the twice-a-year Dewey's Read-a-Thon. I think I have participated in two or three now. The first one after I started blogging unfortunately fell on cub scout campout weekend, but I have lucked out since then. If you haven't participated, come give it a try - it's fun to read, read, read and blog (if you blog) and read blogs. It's rather informal - you don't have to forgo all family activities (though you can if you want). The main thing is to have fun and read.
How do you participate? Simply go to the blog and sign up and read more about the read-a-thon. It's coming up on April 9th so mark your calendars and come join us. I may be in and out during that time - I think that is opening weekend for little league around here and both of my boys are participating so that means I'll be gone a little while and if the boys have games I'll be out of it more than planned, but hey I'm excited about seeing my boys play. And I'll read as much as I can as well :)
