It's Time For Dewey's Read-a-thon Again!

Just a few more hours now until the spring edition of Dewey's Read-a-thon kicks off and I've finally officially signed up to read from 7 a.m. Saturday until 7 a.m. Sunday. Okay--in the fall I really thought that I was going to read for 24 hours, less one Nebraska football game and maybe some family interruptions. But there were a lot of football games to watch and kids coming in and out and at five in the morning I was bleary eyed and not at all enjoying myself any more so I called it a night. This time I'm really going to try to get more reading done during the day but when I get tired, I'm calling it a night! Snacks and caffeine will figure prominently. These are the books I'm planning on reading:


"Comfort Living" by Christine Eisner


"The Singer's Gun" by Emily St. John Mandel


"The Only True Genius In The Family" by Jennie Nash


"Get Lucky" by Katherine Center


"The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott" by Kelly O'Connor McNees

  1. Yay...I'm so glad you're doing this too! I've made a list of all the blogs I follow who are participating so I can stop by on occasion. =O)

    I've got the big Keep Out sign for my library door ready...LOL! I'm usually gone all day and night on Saturday (I stay at my mom's house) so I told my husband that they need to act like I'm not even home. We'll see how well it goes.

    Looks like you have some great books lined up. Can't wait to hear what you think about the Alcott book.
