Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon Recommendations

Thursday, April 21, 2016

My favorite book event is here yet again - Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon. It is a 24 Hour event wherein readers around the world get to read along together for an entire day. I feel like after participating in this event five times now that I know which books tend to work. Obviously, there are so many other ways, but for me, I think the key is not to overwhelm yourself and to just have fun. As for book choices, I feel like the best options are those that are effortlessy easy to read and books that are fast-paced page-turners. If you are still looking for options, here are just some of the books I had in mind:

In this stack, I have a mix of different genres. There's the non-fiction choices: memoirs and historical accounts, the poetry and short stories for when you need a fresh break, a children's classic, unputdownable contemporary fiction, thrilling mystery, ridiculously fun science fiction, easy-to-get-through Young Adult, and not pictured, because my brother borrowed them: comics and graphic novels. Watchmen would be my top pick, as always.

What are some books you think would be perfect for the readathon? Suggest away!


  1. I love to read books by Sarah Jim during the readathon. I also like to have a book of essays, and in most cases they are about knitting for little breaks throughout the day from my main books. Have a great reading day... I'm terribly excited!

    1. Stupid autocorrect..should be Sarah *Jio*....
