Dewey 23-Hour Read-a-Thon Update:
Time spent on the read-a-thon:
My morning was devoted to regular life so my reading didn't kick in until almost 2:00 Pacific Time (that's hour 10)! I read until 10:00pm so got in about 6 hours of reading since I took a dinner break and a dog-walking break.
- Hummingbirds by Joshua Gaylord
- Shakespeare Bats Cleanup by Ron Koertge
- The Eternal Smile by Gene Luen Yang and Derek Kirk Kim
- I am part way into Plastic by Harvey (it's an Orca Soundings book from the "Easier" reading collection in my school's library)
I participated in a few mini-challenges
I visited a few blogs to cheer people on
I love the read-a-thon even though I never make it through the night (that's just not going to happen), I never read as much as I hope or think I will, and life always gets in the way. However, I love the feeling of belonging to the larger group, that there are people around the world participating in the same event as me at the same time. We will probably never meet, but we "know" one another through this shared experience of the read-a-thon and the shared love of books and reading.
