Dewey's ReadAThon is here! (Starting/Tracking/Wrapup Post) #Readathon


Deweys Read-a-Thon is TODAY!  It couldn’t have been more perfect timing since I am nursing what I like to call “Plague of the Replicating Mucus .  What a perfect excuse to sit inside and read.  Plus, I just got back from a book conference so I have a whole bunch of books screaming “read me, read me, read me”!  All around I think it is going to be a blast 🙂

What is on my agenda (mood reader alert so these are just ideas):

Introductory Questionnaire

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?Texas! Where yes we are supposed to be 82 degrees today–can you say we forgot fall?

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? Judging a Book by It’s Lover by Lauren Leto

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? Pumpkin Spice Latte later as a treat 🙂

4) Tell us a little something about yourself! : I am reading for Literacy Texas so this is all about charity baby!

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 am sick this time so I am guessing I won’t do as well as last time.  This time my focus is just on trying to finish 3 books 🙂

  1. You are the bestest. I want to comment my ass off. I think a pumpkin latte is the perfect reward. Judging a book by its Lover sounds AWESOME. I hope it brings your mucus filled life with some joy.

  2. I hope some time on the sofa with those books makes you feel better!
    It’s great that you are reading for charity – I hope you raise a ton for Literacy Texas!

  3. I am suffering from the very same plague – plus it is dreary and rainy out. It’s a perfect day for curling up with some tea and a book. I hope you feel better soon!

  4. Good luck today, Felicia! I hope your sickness doesn’t get in the way of LOTS OF READING! (And that you feel completely better.)

  5. Good luck today!!! I’m not participating but am hoping to get some reading time in today myself!

    I love that you do this for charity – what a great idea. I hope you get lots done!!!
