I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading

Tracking My Dewey Progress




Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon

Saturday, October 12, 2013

Start time: 7 a.m. CST
start time for me? 5 a.m.
Since that is my bedtime, I'll have about 7 hours to read, visit and blog.


I've taken a picture of all the library books I have checked out and I can only say...yikes! I've got some that are due sooner than others and some that have already been renewed at least once and should be read quickly.

There are a couple of review books, okay there are five seven, on my list. Plus the four I got in the mail yesterday, my huge ARC pile, and even bigger TBR pile. Sigh.

I've donated a prize this year!  "$20 towards book of choice at Book Depository". International and I don't have to pick a title!

edit: I'm going to need these! Hashtags: #Readathon #Dewey #MiniChallenge #RahRahReadathon
