Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon

     So I'm preparing for Saturday's 24 hour read-a-thon.  This time I don't have the need to cram into a short span because I've surpassed my reading goals for the year.  I'm just planning to enjoy myself and have fun.  Which means that I'm planning on getting up a few hours later than the normal start time.  My plans are to participate in about twelve hours of the read-a-thon.  I didn't get any snacks this time around but I'm hoping to just find stuff from around the house.  This read-a-thon is starting on Saturday, October 22 at 8 am in my area.   If you are interested in signing up for this read-a-thon you can go to the site at .
