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 […]
