Read Along Readathon

I’m joining Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon today as my bests have taken my child for a goodly part of the day and my grumpy husband has agreed (non-verbally) to pick up the slack thereafter.  This challenge seems like a perfect match for me and a way to get a little pep back in this hobbled step. I can’t promise I… Read more →

Feed Yer Head – Readathon the First

I love books.  I mean, I really, really love them.  Like love them so much I’d marry them.  Or at least many of the characters between their hallowed covers.  My first love was Sydney Carton.  Which probably says a lot about me as a romantic partner. Reading was my primary addiction.  At age four, I taught myself to read.  Soon… Read more →
