October Readathon Wrap-Up

Dewey’s 24-hour Read-a-thon for this Fall is over and I am already looking forward to the next time–April 6, 2019! There were so many years when I wasn’t able to participate, so it is especially sweet for me to be able to give myself a day to do nothing but read. It’s a fun event, so nice to meet up with other readers online and hang out together sharing our mutual love of books. THANK YOU SO MUCH to all the organizers and everyone who helped to make this a very special event!

My approach for this read-a-thon was to simply enjoy whatever I read. I didn’t want to count pages or go for a specific goal of how many books to get through. I just wanted to savor the freedom of having a whole day set aside for reading. I started with some quick reads–two lovely children’s books–then listened to the audiobook versions of two short stories by authors I really like. I read a graphic novel and the screenplay to an old classic movie. And I finished a book that I had started earlier in the week. I almost finished another book that I really wanted to read for this event but I got too tired to keep my eyes open any longer. That’s okay. I’m finishing it up today!

What a great day!
