Apparently there's a Blogathon
heading our way, and while LitKicks is not going to participate directly (because this blogger prefers to sleep) we are going to host the 24 hour blogging of our very own Caryn Thurman

of the 2005 Blogathon Best Webcam Award
, and who will be joining the madness again this year to raise money for ProLiteracy.org

She'll be setting up her webcam right near the spot where I will be happily sleeping as she drives herself into a state of restless delirium attempting to blog for 24 hours straight.

why ProLiteracy.org is important and why it'd be a great thing if you supported her selected charity with a donation of any size. Other friends of LitKicks are also joining the Blogathon, including Jamelah Earle
who will be blogging on behalf of Breast Cancer Research
and Ed Champion
, who says he might
join the Blogathon (well, then, we might
