24 hour Dewey #Readathon for #charity Goal Post ~ Edit

Posted October 14, 2015 by Michelle in Dewey Readathon / 9 Comments


 It is almost time for the Fall 2015 Dewey’s #ReadaThon (this Saturday).
I am doing something a little different and will be reading for Charity. I will be donating to a charity for Diabetes in honor of my Dad, My Sons Teacher and my Daughter “Boyfriend” (she’s 7, god help me).

I had a blast doing this last time and it was so much fun, I am hoping to last longer than I did but I will stock up on LOTS of coffee and hoping to reach my goal and finish all the books on the list.


I will be updating throughout the read-a-thon to tell you my progress and show you some pictures of what has been going on. I will also try and do a couple of the mini challenges but I really want to get reading so I might only do a few.

My Goal:

I will be starting at 8am on Saturday not sure if I will make it the entire time but I am sure as hell going to try.

I have high hopes for this time around. I am looking to read 4 books but I am not stressing if I don’t read them all. They are full length books no novellas. I am also hoping the kids jump in with me to read even if it’s just one book, I think it will be fun to have them read with me and help with the charity donation.

What I will be reading:

I am making a minor change to the list of books I am going to read. I have decided that I will not be listing them since I am in a rather weird reading mood and going to just going to do a little shelf love. So as I read I will be adding each book I am currently reading and/or finished with and what will be coming next depending on how are into the book I am. It’s so hard to pick a book when you have so many you want to read first 🙂

Charity Goals

I will be donating to MOSH FOR A CURE 4
Raise Money and Awareness for Juvenile Diabetes! This year Mosh for a Cure will be donating the money to Dr DENISE FAUSTMAN and FAUSTMAN LABS. She is one of the leading doctors searching for a cute for Type 1 Diabetes! Click on the Doctors name for more information about her and her research.

Here is how my totals are determined:

  • $5 for every book read:
  • 10 cents for each comment (on any Dewey’s Post: Twitter, FB, Instagram, Blog):
  • 10 cents for every tweet I receive about the #ReadAThon:
  • $1 for every review I write after the book is read:
  • $2 for every hour missed:
  • $1 for every hour participated:
  • $1 for every mini-challenge completed:
  • 50 cents for every person that donates to the link above:
    Just let me know in the comments that you donated. You don’t have to have a specific amount, .50 cents will go to my total regardless of what you donate. So if you want to donate a $1 that is awesome any amount will help but you don’t have to donate it was just something I added in since diabetes is something that hits close to home.


 Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will cheer me on. Feel free to comment before they will count towards my donation. I am very excited to be doing this, are you joining the read-a-thon?

I hope you have an amazing day!

    • Thank you! I am hoping this will help her reach her goal. Type 1 is bad and she’s only 15 so any thought that this doctor might be able to help is great!
