The 10th year of the Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon is on tomorrow! It’s my favorite readathon, and it’s unique in that everyone starts at the exact same time, no matter where you’re located in the world. For me, it goes from 7am Saturday to 7am Sunday. Check out the full list of start times here. I shared my tips for 24 hour readathons in a separate blog post, so be sure to check that out too if you’re participating.
I did it! I made it through another 24 Hour Readathon!! I fell asleep briefly at a couple different points, but never for longer than 15 minutes at a time. Aaaaand the readathon ended 4 hours ago, and I’m still awake….
The readathon ends at 7AM for me so I usually dive face first into bed as soon as it’s over and don’t resurface until at least noon, but I’m strangely not tired today. I’m sure I’ll crash really early tonight to make up for it.

It’s readathon time!! I’ve been prepping for weeks, I’m so excited. As with years past, I’ll be updating my progress on this post throughout the readathon. I like to break it down by the hour, but I’ll probably only be updating the post every few hours so that I’m not on my computer so often. If you’re participating, leave me a comment your social media links where you’ll be updating your progress!
Be sure to follow me on Instagram too @bookstacksamber! I’ll be updating my story there throughout the day.

Meal prep! One of my favorite parts of #readathon!
That’s all folks! Even though I took a 20 minute nap at Hour 19 and ended up going to bed at Hour 23, I had a really successful readathon. I did get much more tired this year than last time, but I’m not sure what that was attributed to. Maybe it was the fact that there were a couple days during the week when I had insomnia and didn’t get much sleep, or maybe it was all the junky food I ate (I ate much more healthy snacks last time), or maybe I’m just getting too old to stay up all night!
Like with last year, I’m going to be updating my progress every hour. However, I’ll only be publishing the update every few hours so that I’m not on my computer constantly. Newest updates will be at the top. Keep checking in if you’re curious how I’m doing 🙂 If you’re updating on your blog, leave the link in the comments so I can stop by!

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon starts in less than 13 hours!! 24 hours straight is a long time to read, especially when you’re also struggling to stay awake. I’m by no means an expert, but I want to share some tips that have worked for me in the past with long readathons like this.
