We will be participating in our 17th bout of books read-a-thon next week.
The Bout of Books readathon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It’s a weeklong readathon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in YOUR time zone. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are daily challenges, Twitter chats, and exclusive Instagram challenges, but they’re all completely optional. For Bout of Books 28 information and updates, visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
Today Jenn and I are taking part in our twenty sixth Dewey's Read-a-thon. With everything going on in the world this one feels differently. In some ways I think more could be read as after a few months of insanity at work and in the world it is great escape. On the other hand I've been becoming less and less motivated to do anything. I guess time will tell!! It's also the first time we've been doing it just the two of us for a long time as our reading buddy can't come over due to COVID!!! Anyway I hope everyone is well and as a good day. I will post updates after every three hours.
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? The Woodlands, Texas 2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? Little Woman 3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? Cheese!! 4) Tell us a little something about yourself! English Ex-Pat living in Texas with the love of my life and out little family of a dog and six cats! 5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? This one is different as we'll be at home rather than stay in a hotel. -Richard
