Dewey 24 Hour Readathon!

Saturday, April 25, 2020

********  UPDATED HOUR 16 ********
This is my 17th 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. For years Heather and Andi have hosted this amazing event. This is their very last time as the hosts. The readathon will continue, but they will be missed! 

My first readathon was in April 2011, when my dog Ollie (pictured) was just a tiny pup! Since then I've met friends and read thousands of pages during the readathons. I've read while hugely pregnant, while sitting next to someone I love in a hospital room, on road trips, and more. It's become something I look forward to. Throughout the year I set aside books I know would be perfect for the readathon. In short, it is a community that I love and means the world to me.

Reading Stats:
Pages Read:
 683
Currently Reading: Farewell Summer and Everything, Everything 
Books Finished: Every Brilliant Thing, How to Be a Good Creature, Fox 8, The Princess Diarist

5) If you participated in the last readathon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? I usually leave the house to get a cup of coffee and read somewhere else for awhile. Since we are still quarantined I will be at home the whole time. We'll see how that goes.
