Category Archives: Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon
Today I’m participating in Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon! So to not inundate my followers with numerous update posts, I will instead, as with past read-a-thons, utilize Tumblr to update you all on my progress. I will post each of these updates below! So, while the look of this post may not drastically change, know that there […]
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 […]
It’s here! I cannot tell you how excited I am! I’m up, showered and ready to get reading!! I will be updating my progress on Tumblr, posting those updates below. Good luck to all participating! Update # 1: 10:00 AM Update # 2: 2:45 PM Update # 3: 4:45 PM Update # 4: 7:15 PM
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 […]
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, […]
It’s here! It’s here! My excuse to read for 24 hours, uninterrupted! I have piles, yes piles of book set aside to choose from. I don’t believe I’ll read more than 5 or 6 but I like to have my options handy & close by! Here’s my oldest son’s stack of books to choose from: […]
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 […]
I’ve finished my third book and I’ve slowly starting to succumb to my exhaustion. We had quite the busy day today and I’m starting to pay for it. My plan is to take a short nap & wake up and pick up another book. If that doesn’t work out, I’m happy with the progress I’ve […]
We’re coming up on 7 pm here, so nearly 11 hrs in to the readathon. I’ve been reading at a nice, leisurely pace, enjoying and savoring the books as I read them. I’m taking a brief break now to watch Bones with my son; he’s been begging to watch an episode with me for weeks. Progress […]
It’s just after 4 pm here, so about eight hours in to the readathon. After taking a few hour break for my son’s belt ceremony (and a trip to Baskin Robbins for an ice cream treat) I’ve been back in the game for about an hour now. I’m feeling good, not to tired and keeping […]
