I’m calling it a day for Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon. It was good and it’s made me realize I should set more time aside for reading. Continue reading “Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon Update #2”
So far so good. My 24-hour readathon got off to a good start and although I haven’t read as much as I hoped I would, I’m trying to go easy on myself. If anything, I’ve done more reading today than I usually do! Continue reading “Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon Update #1”

Spring is officially here but it certainly doesn’t look like it! On this particular cool day, I’ve rounded up a list of reads while I keep warm and cozy.

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!”
