Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon? Yes, please!!
I'm participating today in Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon. I'm pretty sure I've participated before in years past, but honestly, I can't remember. In any case, my plan for today is very, very unstructured. I have no particular stack of books to read. I have no plan to read for the whole 24 hours. I'm going to participate as my schedule today allows. And I will come back afterward or likely tomorrow morning early and update this post with some thoughts on what I read, perhaps some statistics (no promises there though), and a farewell to the April 2015 Read-a-thon.
So, the reading is supposed to begin in my part of the world at 7:00 AM. I am going ahead and having this post go live at my normal time. I have volunteered to help out with cheerleading and that will be what part of my time will be spent doing. I am on Team Mr. Popper! How fun is that?
The books I'll be listening to and reading are located in my sidebar under 'Currently Reading' and 'Currently Listening To'. I'll update if I finish either.
Don't think I have any cute little cheers, but I'll be stopping by some blogs to say, "good luck and enjoy, enjoy!". And it begins...one Saturday in April, just as I thought I had my day planned, I picked up my book and.....
UPDATE at 5:00 PM
Well, I have finished my audiobook and started another one. Have read only a few pages in my regular book, but I'm OK with that. I have a lot more time to read on a regular basis than many. I have cheered and cheered and cheered! That part has been lots of fun and people are in so many places throughout the world. Wow! I took a break this morning, went to the gym, walked and biked and then ran some errands. I will do a completion post tomorrow morning and it will be a separate post. That's all for now. Will see all of you on the flip side or early tomorrow! Good luck to all and mostly, enjoy yourselves.
