Read-a-thon Dewey at The Hidden Side of a Leaf is holding a read-a-thon on the 28th of June. She’s held one (more?) before, but that was before I got into book blogging properly again, so I missed the last one. I’ve been toying with the idea of doing it solo now that I’m on vacation, but it seems a lot more fun to do it at the same time as a bunch of other people, so I’m definitely going to take part in this one.

There is one thing, though. See, the read-a-thon starts at 9 am Pacific DST. That’s five o’clock in the afternoon for me, which means that I’d finish at six in the evening on the 29th. Since I go back to work on the 30th and would like to be well-rested then, I have devised a plan. I shall take part in the read-a-thon, but I will start at 9 am my time and finish at 9 am my time. This means I won’t be doing it at quite the same time as everyone else, but it’ll definitely be better for my sanity.

Or, another way would be to do it at the same time as everyone else, but go to sleep for a few hours in the night, which is acceptable according to the rules (here’s the FAQ, for those who might be interested. It seems like a fun thing to do, so come on! Join in!) and would probably be easier on me.

We’ll see what I do. Right now I both want to do the full 24-hour thing and at the exact same time as everyone else.

    However you decide to do it will work out just fine. We’ve had people do both, either sleep partway through or do it their own time and only overlap with us partially.
