The Relentless Reader’s 24 Hour Readathon Book Stack

It’s almost time for Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon!

One of my favorite things about this event is the preparation. What should I read? What should I eat?

I like to read a mixture of graphic novels and short classics on readathon day. I need the art of graphic novels and the language of the classics to keep my synapses sizzling. The short length of these reads ensures that I won’t burn out. It’s not about how many books I can read, it’s about making sure that my energy doesn’t flag. It’s about quality more than quantity.

I’ve purchased a few new graphic novels and requested a few other books from my local library. Here are the books that will be on my readathon stack:

This One Summer by Jillian Tamaki & Mariko Tamaki
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton
American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang
O Pioneers! by Willa Cather
The Turn of the Screw by Henry James
The Awakening by Kate Chopin
I doubt that I’ll get through all of these but I’m sure going to have a fantastic stack to work with. Do you have your readathon reads stacked up and ready to go? Which book are you most looking forward to reading?

  1. Great stack! I have ended up having to read books that I \”needed\” to read during the past two readathons. Must plan better next time and get some graphic novels!
