It’s that time of year again! Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon is here! Last Read-A-Thon I did really well and was one of the page count winners so this year I am really going to try and stay up and push the envelope! In the last Read-A-Thon I must admit I crashed a little early. I have my books planned and am working on my snacks…these are a must for a Read-A-Thon in my opinion. I do know I will be enjoying some Godiva Chocolate Truffle coffee to try and keep me going! I never really set goals for the Read-A-Thon, I really just put together a pile of books I want/need to read and go at it!
This year’s selection for the October 9, 2010 Read-A-Thon
As you can see I like to choose a wide variety of genres so that if I get in a rut..there are lots of options. I asked my friends yesterday what I should start reading this morning but I ended up finishing The Good Daughters by Joyce Maynard and loved it. I highly recommend it and will be giving away two copies immediately after Read-A-Thon ends thanks to the publisher HarperCollins. Also keep a watch for my review.
All you need to do to enter is tell me what you are reading right now in the comments below! And make sure you leave me an e-mail address so I can contact you if you win! US and Canada address only please.
Good Luck Everyone & Happy Reading!

Well…it’s that time again to say goodbye to Read-A-thon and all my fellow readers over the past 24 hours. This year I did pretty good but I did sleep and that hurt my numbers badly. However what it most important is that I still had a blast and can’t wait to write up my reviews for those books I did read. Look for them in the coming days on Stiletto Storytime…see you all nest Read-A-Thon!
Thanks to everyone who stopped by and cheered for me or visited to enter a copy of Joyce Maynard’s The Good Daughter’s. It was definitely one of my favorite books from read-a-thon this year. The big winners were:
Erin @ Crazy Comma Momma
Debbie @ Readerbuzz
Congrats to you both! I know you will love the book just as much as I did!
