Readathon is Coming!

Dewey of The Hidden Side of A Leaf is hosting a 24 Hour Readathon. She has now posted an update. Her post is very long, but it's worth reading all the details and fine print! You can sign up to be a reader, cheerleader, or promoter via Mr. Linky. I have *officially* signed up to be a reader. I know I won't last the 24 hours. But I'm hoping to give it my all while I can keep my eyes open! For those in the Central time zone, it starts at 8AM on October 20th. "People who sign up to be readers are committing to reading books, posting updates in their blogs, and if they need breaks, visiting the blogs of other readers and encouraging them. The most hardcore among us will stay up the entire 24 hours and do nothing but read and update, even going so far as to skip showering and eat meals while reading. However, not all of us are that hardcore, and it’s ok for you to customize this readathon to meet your needs."

SATURDAY OCTOBER 20TH, starting at 2pm GMT

We’re timing it to line up with the 24 Hour Comics Day, so the date will be Saturday, October 20th. I checked Google Analytics and saw that the majority of my readers are in North America, with the second largest readership in Europe. So I tried to come up with a time when the greatest number of people will be rested. 2pm GMT is 6am in California, which may be early, but if you normally get up at 8, you can just start at 8, no problem. Here’s a world time zone map.
