I'll definitely take some of their tips to heart, such as:
- "Pick shortish books": Check! I got a bunch of childrens/YA library books I'm dying to sink my teeth into. Most of them are somewhere in between 88-200 pages. Hopefully I can finish at least 4 books.
- "Choose something light": Yep, my selections are fun and playful (listed below). There's no way I could read a long, sluggish tome for an event like this.
- "In general, don’t be a masochist. This is supposed to be fun!": OK, this is something I will keep in mind. Why participate if it's not fun?!?
See more tips on Dewey's FAQ page. Oh, and did I mention---there are a ton a prizes! YAY!
