Dewey Readathon Starts Tomorrow!

Ok, I've decided to do this. The readathon begins at 7 am central time and I'm going to wake at this obscene hour to read for as long as I can. I'm actually excited. I have so many library books hanging I need to do this as much as I want to do this. Are you doing the readathon? Maybe we can support each other.

The Game Plan: Wake at 7, eat cereal and read blogs. Comence reading in earnest by 7:30. I'm going to try and read without a break until noon. Then I'll eat and post about what I'm reading. I'll look forward to reading everyone's posts about how their readathon is going! Resume reading in the afternoon (2ish) and stick with it until 6. I'll post again and let you know how it's going. After dinner, if my eyes are still able to focus, I may continue this crazy endeavor. That's the plan, anyways, and always subject to change with mood and weather. =)

The Supplies: Stack of Books, Tea (Tender Leaf and Lipton green), leftover pot roast and...a SNACK, I need a snack! What should I make for tomorrow? Rice krispies? Hmmm. Any ideas?

The Books: Graceling, A Wrinkle in Time, When You Reach Me, Stargirl, American on Purpose, Shiver and O Pioneers. That's 5 YA, one bio and one classic. Ok, wish me luck!

  10. The books you're going to read look so good! I adored Graceling, and A Wrinkle in Time is one of my childhood favorites.

  11. Reading takes a toll
    Stand and stretch and eat
    Settle back with book
