Dewey's Read-a-thon: Hour 1 (for me at least!)

Finally home from work and ready to kick off the read-a-thon. Now let's see--do I have everything I need?

Books? check
Snacks? check
Tea? check
Reading glasses? sadly, check
Cell phone to keep up with Twitter? check
Peace and quiet? not so much.

The hubby is off having fun, Mini-him is at work but Mini-me and Miss H are in various parts of the house listening to music which they feel obliged to share. The blending of the two is not particularly conducive to relaxed reading. Soon I'll send Mini-me off for pizza and that will afford me a little more quiet. Kicking off the day with The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O'Connor McNees.


  1. Happy reading! I loooove Jelly Belly! Also, just had that exact same tea you had at my friend's house last weekend, how serendipitous! It tastes great. :D

  2. Yea...time to read! Hope the distractions aren't too distracting:) Happy reading.

  3. Sounds like you are all ready to get some serious reading done!

  4. I started late reading to so its nice to know I am not alone on that, but sounds like you are all ready to go...happy reading!

  5. Hey there... just checking on you. I didn't join this time around but I remember the evening hours being the toughest. Hope you have some juicy reads lined up.

  6. I'm hoping to start The Lost Summer... before the Readathon is over too. Good luck, and keep rockin' the Readathon!

  7. Have fun! The pic looks like just pure pleasure itself!

  8. I read the Lost Summer of LMA during the Read a Thon too - I loved it! My review will be up soon!
