Dewey's Readathon Begins! Introduction Meme

1)Where are you reading from today? I am reading from home in Southeast Wisconsin

2)Three random facts about me… I have three children, I played the violin growing up, I adore dark chocolate

3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? 15...I won't get to them all but wanted an assortment ready to go

4)Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)? No set goals, just to read as much as I can and have fun

5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time? Just to have fun and maybe set up a template for updates. I found that having a template is helpful.

And we are off! Let the reading begin!

I am starting the day off finishing Whistlin in a Nor'Easter which I had hoped to have finished before today. I spent yesterday suit shopping with one of my sons for a wedding he is going! He is my procrastinater. Do you know how hard it is to find a suit to fit a tall, skinny guy on short notice? Love the lady at Men's Wearhouse! She hooked us up and took excellent care of us!

I am ready to read. The dogs are fed. I have my favorite dog t-shirt on along with my favorite yoga pants. The weather is going to be beautiful, so some reading can be done outside! Yay! I have a lukewarm cup of coffee(coffeemaker is not my friend today) with french vanilla creamer in it. The house is quiet since everyone else is sleeping in.

Good luck and have fun everyone!


  1. Yay! (from someone who JUST posted her starting post for Dewey's!) I'll be leaving the house in an hour or so, too, so I'm not going to get MUCH reading in, but I'm hoping to enjoy the reading I do get done! :)

  2. Good luck Beth. You are so lucky to be able to still sit outside and read.

  3. It's pretty great that you play the violin! I always wanted to learn, but I'm a piano girl through and through.

    Happy reading!


I love comments so please feel free to leave them!
