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!! 🎉

Hey everyone!  So, I wasn’t planning on participating in the Spookathon this year, because I was already been planning on doing the Sbooktober readathon, and I just didn’t know if I would be up for two readathons back-to-back.  That being said, I feel like I’ve really been lacking with my reading this month, and I’ve decided maybe back-to-back readathons are just what I need!  So, I’m going for it! The Spookathon started yesterday,… Read More
