Happy Past My Bed Time Y’all (or at least here in Texas)! This will the tracking post for hours 16 to 20 for Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon! As always, I am reading for charity. This time it is for the Richardson Adult Literacy Center! How I do this: Every book read is worth $2 donation (I usually get about 5 done) Every comment on an update post, intro post, and mini-challenge post (I am hosting one too) is worth .50 cents Every hour read is worth $1 (last time I got in 16 hours but aiming for 18 this time) This time: Every entry into my mini-challenge post (Hour 4) is worth .50 cents Hour 16 Check In: I am still hanging in there!  I think I have hit a wall so I got up to do 15 min of walking to get a 2nd wind!  IT WORKED! This is when I normally go to bed so I am hoping if I can make it past this hump I will be good to go 🙂 Reading: Rescue My Heart by Jill Shavis Hour 16 Photo   Hour 17 Check In: Funny books and music I think are going to be […]

Happy Dinner time Y’all (or at least here in Texas)! This will the tracking post for hours 11 to 15 for Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon! I will be concentrating on reading for these hours so probably no mini-challenges but I will be doing a picture every hour 🙂 As always, I am reading for charity. This time it is for the Richardson Adult Literacy Center! How I do this: Every book read is worth $2 donation (I usually get about 5 done) Every comment on an update post, intro post, and mini-challenge post (I am hosting one too) is worth .50 cents Every hour read is worth $1 (last time I got in 16 hours but aiming for 18 this time) This time: Every entry into my mini-challenge post (Hour 4) is worth .50 cents Hopefully I will be donating around $50 to charity 🙂 Feel free to make my pocket-book hurt! Hour 11 Check-In I am going to spend the next hour soaking in the sun! It isn’t warm enough to get in the pool but I can lay outside beside it. It is so nice to have sun without it being a 1000 degrees.  We don’t get many […]

Howdy Y’all!  It is hour 4 for Dewey’s Read-a-Thon and time to have a little fun with your current read!  This challenge is fairly simple but I am hoping for some awesome creativity. Also because I am reading for charity each entry will equal a donation worth .50 cents and will go to the Richardson Adult Literacy Center so make my pocket-book HURT! The Challenge Take your current read or the one you just finished. ReTitle it with something clever Post to your blog, twitter, facebook, or goodreads with your snazzy new title! Example: I am reading Warrior Ascended by Addison Fox I would rename this to: Smart Chick Rules the HAWT Warrior FTW (mostly because I don’t have to worry about too much writing on the book page) 🙂 What would yours be? There will be one winner (chosen at random) They will be able to choose a book of their choice from Amazon (US) or Book Depository (Int) up to a $20 value The Challenge starts at 10am CST 4/27/13 The Challenge ends at 2 pm CST 4/27/13 Make sure to leave your link to your renamed book! Thanks for Participating! WINNER; You Book Me All Night Long! Sending […]
