Dewey 24 Hour Readathon!

Saturday, April 6, 2019

********  UPDATED HOUR 23 ********
I made it to hour 16 and then fell asleep. 
I'm up reading a little more before the readathon ends. 
This will be my very last readathon while pregnant. Yay! Unfortunately I'm on bedrest this weekend. I'm 35 weeks pregnant and have had a few preterm labor scares so far. I will be putting my feet up and reading today, but might not be updating as frequently as I normally do. I'll also be helping my husband with my 3-year-old, so we'll see how this goes.

This is my 15th readathon (see links below). Here's a link for more info about the Dewey Readathon. Today you can find me posting on Litsy and Instagram as @avidreader25 as well as here.

My daughter-in-law was on bedrest for the last month of her pregnancy, and she just had a healthy, almost-ten-pound baby boy two weeks ago. I hope all will go easily for you during this last month. It's the ideal time for a readathon, I think.

Deb - That's amazing and so encouraging! Thank you! It's definitely the perfect time for a readathon!

Awww look at the sweet doggo! Hope the rest of your pregnancy is smooth sailing and that you can enjoy lots of reading time while on bedrest.
