Read-a-thon Highlights

Another Dewey’s Readathon has come and gone, and we could not be more thankful for the thousands of you who joined us to read, cheer, host mini-challenges, co-host.

Heather and I are whizzes with spreadsheets and we have a pretty good organizational plan to keep things going, but without all of you taking time out of your lives to volunteer and read, this event wouldn’t happen. It’s so important to us that we honor Dewey’s legacy, so thank you so much for enthusiastically doing that time and again.

Quick Facts:

  • 2,008 readers
  • 132 cheerleaders
  • 28 mini-challenges
  • 1,102 entries in the Books Read Database (so far)
  • 8 hourly co-hosts
  • 1,495 Goodreads group members
  • 120+ prizes awarded

If you’re interested in volunteering for the next readathon on April 23, 2016, fill out the form down below.

But now…Amanda from Fig and Thistle has used Storify to capture some moments from the readathon that we hope you’ll enjoy.

Read on, readers!!!!

See you next time!

  1. This was awesome. I’m glad that I came across it and got to participate, and I can’t wait to do it again in April. Thanks to this challenge I’m reading again after a short time without doing much of it so just want to say thanks to all of ya’ll. =)

  2. Wow! What a great Storify collection!! I love being able to relive all the wonderful moments through everyone’s eyes and thoughts. This was a fantastic Readathon, and it was all because of the people involved. THANK YOU!

    I can’t wait for next year. Sign me up as a volunteer! 😀

  3. Darnit! The October readathon ended up the day before I was preaching a sermon (so sermon writing took precedence)… the April date is the day I’m going to see a matinee performance of Newsies (which usually ends up in an all-day thing)… Sigh… 🙁
