Dewey Read-A-Thon – Its Cheerleading Time!

26 Apr

dewey 24 hour

Last October I discovered this great event called Dewey’s 24-hr Read-a-thon – where readers from around the world, all start reading at the same time and try to read for the entire 24 hours. I had a great time participating last year, even though I only made it through about 15 hours of it. Unfortunately, when it came time for the April iteration of it, I had previous commitments (it was my monthly military drill weekend). But just because I didn’t have time to read this season doesn’t mean that I can’t participate.

pearl krabsI loved the support that I got from other readers last time, so I decided to sign up to be a cheerleader – pom pom’s and all 😉 The basic role of a cheerleader is to check in with various readers (all of us are assigned to different groups) at various times of the day – give them a cheer if they look to be struggling or a *virtual* high-five if they are kicking ass. All kinds of jazz like that 😉

I’m having a great time doing it so far and hope to check in with other readers during the course of the night – especially as people may start to wan and want to fall asleep. Wish me luck!
