It's time for the spring 2017 edition of Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon! You know by now how much I love the idea of this bi-annual readathon. You're probably also aware by now of how badly I generally do at it when I think I'm going to do the full 24 hours. This time I'm being more realistic.
The Big Guy's been out of town for several days and will arrive home about 4 p.m. tomorrow. That means I have about ten good hours to read. After that, let the talking begin. Because, guys, BG loves, and I mean LOVES, to talk. After all of these years, I still don't have him properly trained to be quiet when I have a book in my hands. Also, we have a dinner party to go to tomorrow night which means I'll be gone for those few hours plus I have to get a dessert ready to take. It also means wine. Which means I'll fall asleep shortly after I arrive home.
So, ten hours it is. And I'll be happy with that. Of course, I'll still have a snack/food pile that looks like it could last at least 24 hours. And, maybe, once I get back home tomorrow night I'll still be awake long enough to check in with everyone and maybe do a mini-challenge or two. Who knows?
What I hope to read:
- Concepcion and The Baby Brokers by Deborah Clearman - I'll finish this one for an upcoming TLC Book Tours review
- Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell - this one's been on my nightstand forever and I want to get it finished
- Miss Burma by Charmaine Craig
- The H Spot by Jill Filipovic

Every readathon I wish I had spent more time interacting with the community instead of burying my nose in a book the whole time. I know, I know it's a readathon but the thing that makes it great is the community. So today, even though my time is limited, I'm going to spend a lot of it on the internet talking to other readers.
