Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon TBR

Hi everyone!

Today, I’m going to be sharing with you the book I plan on reading for Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon.]

I will actually be at a confrence from 8:30am-3:15pm, so sadly I won’t be able to read from that time frame, but I will be able to read in the afternoon/evening!


The book I have chosen to read is I Will Always Write Back: How One Letter Changed Two Lives
by Caitlin Alifirenka, Martin Ganda, Liz Welch.


The true story of an all-American girl and a boy from an impoverishedcity in Zimbabwe and the letter that changed both of their lives forever.
It started as an assignment. Everyone in Caitlin’s class wrote to an unknown student somewhere in a distant place. All the other kids picked countries like France or Germany, but when Caitlin saw Zimbabwe written on the board, it sounded like the most exotic place she had ever heard of–so she chose it.
Martin was lucky to even receive a pen pal letter. There were only ten letters, and forty kids in his class. But he was the top student, so he got the first one.
That letter was the beginning of a correspondence that spanned six years and changed two lives.
In this compelling dual memoir, Caitlin and Martin recount how they became best friends –and better people–through letters. Their story will inspire readers to look beyond their own lives and wonder about the world at large and their place in it.

I also wanted to mention that I will try to do a few hourly updates, so you can see how I’m tracking!

Participation: Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon!

What is Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon? For 24 hours, we read books, post to our blogs, Twitters, Tumblrs, Goodreads and MORE about our reading, and visit other readers’ homes online. We also participate in mini-challenges throughout the day. It happens twice a year, in April and in October.

It was created by the beloved Dewey (her blog has since been taken down, so the link won’t work). The first one was held in October 2007. Dewey died in late 2008. We’re still saddened by her absence, but the show must go on. The read-a-thon was renamed to honor its founder in 2009.

Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon is hosted by Heather and Andi of The Estella Society, with help from volunteers.

The Week of ReadAThons #2 (24-Hour, RYBSAT, UnderHyped Books) TBR!

Hi everyone!

A few weeks ago, I did a post very, very similar to this one, called The Week of Readathons! I stumbled across a video, explaining that this upcoming week, there are ANOTHER 3 ReadAThons! So much excitement!

The first one starts AND finishes TOMMOROW! It is the second annual winter readathon! I didn’t participate in the first one, so I decided that since I have a free day off of school, I would participate!

Here’s the goodreads group:!

The second readathon is the read-your-bookshelf-athon! It starts on the January 16-22! Basically, you pick a point on your bookshelf and continue reading from that point on! My plan is to finish The Hunger Games trilogy, and continue the second book of the harry potter series!

The third readathon is the underhyped books readathon! This one is from January 19-25! For this readathon, you are to read underhyped books, or books that aren’t normally talked about on either the blogosphere, or booktube! Join the goodreads group:


Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets

Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban

The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die by April Henrey

Those are the books I hope to read for The Week of Readathons #2! Are you participating in any of these readathons? Let me know below!
