Read-A-Thon Wrap-Up

Phew! It’s just about a week after the Read-A-Thon began and I think I might almost be recovered. How about you? I absolutely love the Read-A-Thon and I’m so glad that all of you participated.


If you won a prize from our prize list and you haven’t claimed it yet, please make sure you do so by contacting 1330vblog at gmail by Sunday. That’s the deadline. We don’t want you to miss out! And to go along with that, we’re in dire need of prize angels, because as it stands right now, we don’t have enough funds to send all of the international winners their prizes. So, if you can spare a buck, please click the donate button below. Thank you!


We’ve already picked out the date for the next Read-A-Thon, so mark your calendars for OCTOBER 22, 2011. Noon, GMT.

We’re looking for volunteers for the marketing committee for October’s ‘thon, and we’re going to get going on that in about a month, making contact with as many people as we can to get the Read-A-Thon as much exposure as we can. So, if you’re talented and willing in these areas, please email deweyreadathon at gmail and let us know you’re willing to help.


Finally, the total number of books read and reported during the Read-A-Thon was 669. Whoa! You guys rocked it! The book read the most times was City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare, with 4 of you reading it. The entire list is embedded below, and next ‘thon, we’ll ask you for a little more information about the books. We’ll still keep it super-fast and super-simple though so that we don’t cut into your reading time.


THANK YOU for making the April 2011 Read-A-Thon a success! You guys rock!

  1. Have you considered a different start time? 1200 UTC means a lot of America reads from the dead of morning to the dead of morning. In Asia, we read from the end of a hard work day to the end of the next day. Couldn’t we use the data from the map of participants to find a time that allows more people to be more energetic?

    Also, starting something at noon just sounds weird to me! It should be midnight; the bitching hour! Witching hour? Depends on the person, I guess!

  2. Not sure I’ll make October as it is a milestone birthday for me so I’ll probably be busy at least part of the day. (Or i might just crawl under a rock and pretend it isn’t happening!)

  3. Hooray for the book list!
    I have duly marked my calendar for the October ReadAThon and I volunteer to help work on the Books Read form beforehand to make it more informative yet speedy.

  4. I just found this very cool event just in time to miss it for April! Darn, I have a wedding to go to out of town that weekend in October. Well, I guess I will have to wait a year. Thank you for organizing this.
