2019 October Read-a-thon: Wrap Up

…painting by Sally Rosenbaum

What a lovely day spent immersed in books about gardens, garderners, and planthunters! And this afternoon, I also spent time outside working in my own garden, planting bulbs, raking leaves, and preparing the garden for winter.

Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon is a very special event, and I’m so glad I was able to participate again this Fall! I’ve loved my themed reading for the last two read-a-thons so I’ll be tempted to do that same kind of thing for the Spring event.

Thank you to all of you who organized and made this event happen again! I’m sure Dewey would have been thrilled with the level of participation and with how wonderfully it is organized and managed. She left us too soon, but left a beautiful legacy.

    I’ve never done a read-a-thon, but you read two books that are on my TBR list, the Gertrude Jekyl and the Beatrix Potter. Nice idea to have a theme to the read-a-thon.

    I’d like to know more. Is the idea to read in one’s waking hours? People don’t really read for 24 hours, or do they? What are the hours that you read? That is a lot of books to have read! As I told you on igram, I have two of those books. I love the idea of theme reading.
