Deweys Read-a-Thon

Happy Lunch time Y’all (or at least here in Texas)!  This will the tracking post for hours 5 to 10 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:

  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!

Hour 5 Check-In:

I didn’t get any reading done last hour but I did $18.50 worth of entries so far on my Mini-Challenge (goes on till 2pm CST so still time to enter)!

  1. You are totally rocking this readathon…go you!!! And you’re even getting some good steppage in, too!

    I hope you enjoy Iced Chiffon – it’s a fun, quick read. The second one, Killer In Crinolines, is pretty good, too!

  2. It looks like you are doing really great so far! I’m really getting into my second book and just now getting to my lunch. Nom nom. It looks like you’ve been having a great read-a-thon. Enjoy your books!

  3. Keep up the good work! I think I might try reading for charity next readathon. I’m not sure why I never considered it before. I love the pictures. The weather is awful here so no outside reading for me. Happy Reading!

  4. Congrats on raising all that money for charity! It looks like you are having a lovely time reading outside – I should head out that direction before the afternoon runs away from me! 🙂

  5. NICE! Love the outside setup you’ve got going on there. I might be tempted to jump in the pool! It’s a crappy day here–more nap weather than anything else but I plan to get some reading done. Solidarity and all, even if I’m not officially joining in! Happy reading!

  6. I love the picture! It looks so peaceful outside. I can’t wait until it’s warm enough for *me* to read outside. 🙂

    Go Felicia GO!
