Last Saturday was the semi-annual Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon!  I decided to join in on the fun last minute, and I’m so glad I did, because even though I was busy in the evening and didn’t get to read the whole 24 hours, I still ended up reading so much more than I would have!! 🎉

Hello! I know I said I was going to get back into blogging, and then I’ve been silent since, but this time, I mean it! I’m back! 😅 Anyway, the title for this post pretty much gives it away: I’m participating in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon tomorrow!  I haven’t participated in the past few Dewey readathons and I’ve really missed it.  So, I know it’s last minute, but I’ve decided to just… Read More

Hey everyone! Well, Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon is now over, so it’s time I share with you all how it went. After my last update, I read about 10 more pages of Illuminae, and then I fell asleep. Then, I woke up about 20 minutes before the readathon ended, and read until it was over. So, I was able to get to page 118 of Illuminae plus the 20 pages of The… Read More

Hello! I thought I’d check in and share with you all how I’ve been doing today. I haven’t had a whole lot of time to read, but I already knew I wouldn’t. However, I have read a little bit, and given the circumstances of today, I’m not too disappointed with how much I’ve read at this point. So far, I’ve read 20 pages of The Ugly Teapot. I am enjoying this one,… Read More

Hey everyone! Today is Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon! Just in case you don’t know, the goal of the readathon is to read as much as you can in 24 hours. To get all the details, check it out here! I’ve actually got a pretty busy day planned, so unfortunately, I know I’m not going to be able to read as much as I would like. That being said, I’m going to try… Read More

Hello! So, on Saturday, I participated in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon.  It was sort of a last minute decision, so I wasn’t as organized with this one as Dewey’s readathon in April, and I had a few things to do that evening.  That being said, I still read quite a bit, and I’m really happy with how the readathon went for me! Reading Update First, I read the last chapter in The Haunting… Read More

Hey everyone!  This is super last minute, but I’ve decided to participate in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon!  I’m sure a lot of you already know about this, but just in case you don’t, basically you read whatever you want, as much as you can, in 24 hours.  For my timezone, the readathon starts tomorrow morning, October 21, at 8 AM.  To get all the details, as well as see what time the… Read More

Well everyone, we did it! How did you all do? Yesterday was chilly and rainy, and so it was perfect readathon weather. While I didn’t read the entire time, I read so much yesterday! I did have to stop reading to go to bed last night, because I had church in the morning and didn’t want to fall asleep then (lol), so I went to bed around midnight. I had hoped to… Read More

How’s everyone doing on the Readathon at this point? It’s 11 PM where I’m at, and being that I have church in the morning, I’m planning on going to bed soon. That being said, I’m really pleased with the progress I’ve made for this readathon! I’ll have a full wrap up post after the readathon is completely done, but I just have to say, for me, I read so much today. I… Read More

Hello everyone! Today is the big day!! It’s about 11:30 AM where I am, and while I took a bit of a break to eat breakfast and get dressed, I am actually doing really well so far. ☺️ I wanted to start by doing the Hour 1 challenge/introduction even though it’s not Hour 1 anymore: 1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? I’m from Ohio, USA! 🇺🇸… Read More
