The Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon is Over!

Before I give all the facts and figures, I’d like to share a wonderful quote from Reading by Moonlight by Brenda Walker, a book that I’ve started during the Read-a-thon. A good book laces invisible fingers into the shape of a winter armchair or a hammock in the sun. I’m not talking about comfort, necessarily, but …

The End Draws Nigh – Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon

Just a quick update to let everyone know that I’m still soldiering on with the read-a-thon. After losing 7 prime reading hours during the day at a family lunch, then getting busy organising the kids for the evening and getting them to bed, I now have two more hours reading time left. I’d love to …

Read-a-thon Mini-Challenge Catch-up Post

We’re at hour 13 and I’ve missed the deadlines for quite a few mini-challenges, but I thought I would go back over the ones that have been announced since I went to sleep and take part in some of them anyway. Mini-Challenge: Rebecca at The Booklady’s Blog – The #Pantyworthy Challenge Authors as rock stars? …

Hour 13 – Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon Update

Ok, so it was probably a bit unrealistic to think that I’d only sleep for 3 – 4 hours. Thanks to some ongoing neck/back pain, it took me at least half an hour to get to sleep and then Islept for 5 hours. Since waking up I’ve managed to have breakfast and get some more …

Hour 5 – First Official Read-a-thon Update

It’s just hit 3am Sunday morning local time and I think I might head off to bed for a few hours sleep before the kids wake up and the day officially begins. Before I go to sleep, I thought I would post an update of my progress so far. After getting off to a delayed …

Hour 2 – The Kick Off of Champions

We’re in the final minutes of the second hour of the Read-a-thon as I write this. It’s almost midnight here and I’m looking forward to making myself a cup of tea and curling up with a book in just a few minutes. First, I want to take part in The Kick Off of Champions, the …

Hour 1 – Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon

OK. So, technically I’m already past ‘Hour 1’ with nary a page read, but since this is my first Read-a-thon as a reader, I’m trying to join in the community fun as well as reading some great books. Besides, I’d hate for all those wonderful cheerleaders to be bored when they call in to visit. …

Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon – Let the Reading Begin

We’re already into the second hour of the Read-a-thon and I’ve read.. well, I’ve read nothing. That’s right. Not a single page, unless you count the back cover blurb of a book that a friend showed me while I was at her house for dinner. It’s 11.21pm Saturday local time and I’ve only been home for …

Final Preparations for the 24-Hour Read-a-thon

image_00012

With about 10 hours to go until the official Read-a-thon start, I’m just about ready. I’ve made a few last minute additions to my reading list and now have 11 books, one audio book and my uni notes to keep me occupied. My final list includes: Nelson Mandela’s Favourite African Folktales (audiobook) My Story: Who …
