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 will wake up and read at 5am when the challenge begins in my time zone. I can’t promise to stay up until 4:55am on Sunday. I can’t promise to complete any books. I can’t even promise to read the entire time.
But I do hope to have fun. I hope to find some good reads in my stacks. I hope to unite, separately and in my own home, with some new book-addicted homies on the internets. More than anything, I hope to luxuriate in a introverted, full-time stay at home, homeschooling, book-loving mom’s ideal day of living in other worlds and in other’s heads.
Join in if’n you want or follow along on social media. I’ll be on Insta, as per the ushe, but #readathon will be on all your local channels. Good luck, have fun and may all your books be excellent.
