Hello friends! I’m really behind on my Goodreads Goal, so I’m going to focus on reading some of the shorter books in my collection for September. I have loads of ebooks that are novella length, so I’m hoping to breeze through several of those this month, as well as some of the many shorter audiobooks I have. I listen to audiobooks on 2x speed, so anything that’s 6ish hours or less, I can read in one afternoon during my commute home and then while walking my dog later.
Round 10 of Read-O-Rama runs from today until the 15th. There are 7 challenges, and I’m going to attempt to complete them all. I’m now on summer vacation until I have to start teaching summer school in July, so I’m hoping I’ll have the time to read seven books over the course of the week. Check out my reading plans below.
The spring Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon is 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 a couple years ago, so be sure to check that out too if you’re participating.
Last round, I didn’t stay up all night, but I usually do read for the entire 24 hours, and that’s my goal again this round. In fact, I usually don’t even go to sleep on Sunday morning after the readathon ends haha! Most of the time I just power through the day and have a really long sleep on Sunday night.
There are some fun new things happening this round, including a group scavenger hunt, and a goal to reach 1 million pages read!

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.
