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:

Good list! I have a different Gene Leun Yang book on my stack. I think it's so interesting you read classics — I tend to go for more modern books so I don't get bogged down in the language.
I REQUIRE YOU TO TALK TO ME ABOUT SPEAK AFTER YOU READ IT. 😀
I try to pick classics that are a little more accessible. I TRY, lol. I'll fling them aside if they are too crazy dense. The graphics really help with the brain melt too 😉
You are ON! 😀 I'm super excited to read that one and might tackle it first thing.
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!
I think a lot of folks do that. It helps them get through books that are hard for them. I'd rather make it all about the absolute pleasure reading 😉
