Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon: October 2014

Tomorrow, Dewey’s 24-Hour read-a-thon officially kicks off! This is my favorite of the two read-a-thons; there’s something about the cool fall weather and the idea of curling up under a nice, warm, blanket that appeals to me! When I heard my in-laws were coming in town, I knew I still had to figure out a […]

Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon: April 2014 Wrap-Up

Considering the progress I’d made as of 10 PM last night, I thought I’d be smart and call it a night. Today (Sunday), we’re taking the boys into DC to visit one of the museum exhibits that is closing for renovation..for 5 years. So, going in I knew I had to get some sleep, and […]

Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon: The Wrap-Up

  Which hour was most daunting for you? None, really. Happy with my progress at 9 pm. I went to bed and had a great night of sleep!  Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? No specific titles, but I tend to stick to […]

24-Hour Readathon: Spring 2013

I’m very excited to be participating in yet another of Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathons! The premise is simple: read for 24 hours (or as long as you can manage). Like for the past few readathons, I won’t read for the entire 24 hours. With two active boys, it is nearly impossible to devote this much time […]

TSS: 2012 Fall 24-Hour Read-a-thon Wrap Up Post

Well, while I technically didn’t read for the full 24-hours, I feel this read-a-thon was my most successful. For the past few years, I’ve stop when I get tired & head to bed. With a family with active and busy weekend plans, I have to be awake and on my toes. It’s worked quite well, […]

TSS: Wrapping Up the Readathon!

So I participated in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon yesterday and I think this may have been my favorite one, ever.  Why? Well, by far, this was the most relaxed I’ve ever been while reading. I continued to maintain my usual weekend activities and read at the same time, just proving that ANYONE can make time […]
