Today is Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon!

What is Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon, you ask?

It’s a fun reading challenge where you choose a book (or a few books) and read as much as possible during the day. You can read for the full 24 hours and suffer a sleep-deprived, reading hangover…or read for most of the day. Continue reading “Today is Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon!”
