Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon

dewey

For 24 hours, we read books, post to our blogs about our reading, and visit other readers’ blogs. We also participate in mini-challenges throughout the day.

Goal

When I signed up I didn’t expect to have extra family in town for the weekend. I’ll give Saturday morning and Sunday morning participation my best shot.

List

Always subject to change.
