The October 2009 read-a-thon is just about 2 weeks away (it starts at 5 a.m. PDT/1 p.m. GMT on October 24, 2009); sign-ups are open, and as of this writing, 147 people have signed up to read, and 39 people have signed up to cheerlead.
A quick bulleted form of the FAQ:
• You don’t have to stay up all night to participate.
• No, we don’t think we’re crazy to do this (most of the time, anyway).
• Involvement is possible even if you don’t want to (or can’t) read all day.
• You don’t need a blog to participate.
It’s getting close! We’re getting excited! Will you join us?
