Deweys Read-a-Thon

Good Morning Y’all (or at least here in Texas)!  It is time for Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon to begin and I am chomping at the bit!

As always, I am reading for charity.  This time it is for the Richardson Adult Literacy Center!

How I do this:

  1. Every book read is worth $2 donation (I usually get about 5 done)
  2. Every comment on an update post, intro post, and mini-challenge post (I am hosting one too) is worth .50 cents
  3. Every hour read is worth $1 (last time I got in 16 hours but aiming for 18 this time)
  4. 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!

I will be hosting a mini-challenge for hour 4 so remember to stop back by for a chance to stretch your brain and maybe win a prize!

7am CST: Starting Line

First Book Up: Mark of the Sylph by Rosalie Lario (I am at the 50% mark)

Mark of the Sylph by Rosalie Lario

After that I will probably try a first in series.  I could do really well if I find a series that strikes my fancy 🙂

On the mark, get set, go!

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?North Texas where the weather is supposed to be partly cloudy and 80 degrees!  Patio Reading!
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?  The Sons of Zodiac series by Addison Fox!  It has been on my TBR forever.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? My watermelon!  NOM NOM!
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I am silly, goofy, and reading for charity!
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? I actually am doing this readathon from another location this time.  I left everyone at home and for the next 24 hours it is all about reading 🙂

  1. I am going to live vicariously today by watching your reading. I’d LOVE to be able to devote a whole day like this and LOVE that you are doing it for charity. Go, Felicia, Go!!!

  2. I think it’s amazing that you’re reading for charity!! I really need to do that, but since I didn’t think to do it, I’ll just cheer you on and put a hurting on that pocket book! 😉

    Ra-ra-Readathon!
    It’s on
