Dewey's Readathon Better late than never

This will be my post for all my progress and such with the readathon.  I opted to sleep alittle late this morning so I am starting an hour late but I will be reading the rest of the day.

Here is my intro Meme

Introductory Questionnaire

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? I am reading in the country side not to far from Lancaster, PA
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? I am looking forward to all of the them.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? I don't really do the planning of snacks, I have candy bars for later in the day.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I work for an organization that helps deveolpemtnally disabled to live their lives, I love to read,  I really like audio books,
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? I don't think I will do anything different.

I read my devotions and one book here is what I read from

Once-A-Day Bible for Women-NIV

The Power of a Praying Wife Devotional: Fresh Insights for You and Your Marriage

At the Feet of Jesus: Daily Devotions to Nurture a Mary Heart

The Respect Dare

Plans for this next hour.  Keep reading the Respect Dare (would like to get this one finished today)


The Respect Dare

This next hour will be this book

The Cat That God Sent
Isn't the cat cute?  Happy reading!!

I got about 20 pages into The Cat that God Sent.  I got distracted by Facebook.  Not sure how much reading I will be getting done the rest of the day as my hubby is coming home soon and He doesn't understand about the whole read a thon things so has a tendency to come in  and interrupt and things.  so we will see.  I will continue to read The Cat that God Sent.  Cute book so far.

12:00 pm-1:00pm  Not much progress this hour,  Had lunch and what not.  read about 10 more pages.  will continue with The Cat that God Sent.

1:00pm-2:00pm  Really enjoying my book.  interrupted by hubby like I said but he may be going outside for outside work.  Love him but he can really put a cramp in reading.

2:00pm-3:00pm  I only got another 10 pages read but maybe I  can get some good reading in as my hubby has left for a bit.

300pm-400pm   got a good bit of reading done this hour and even snuck in about a 15 minute nap.  This book is really interesting and I really like it.
4:00pm-5:00pm  got a bit more read but I must say I am having a really hard time not being distracted this time around.  I asked my daughter to make supper which should be ready in about a 1/2 hour so will be eating them .  Still reading The Cat that God Sent.
 5:00pm-6:00pm  Even though I complained about my hubby interupting me he was a sweety this last hour and brought me my supper.  He really is a great guy.  Got a good chunk read this hour.
6:00pm-7:00pm  Nothing new to report will probably only read a few more hours.  I don't think I will update again unless I finish my book which I don't forsee happening.  Will post a wrap post sometime tomorrow.  Have a great night everyone.  Happy reading!!1


  1. I know how easy it is to get distracted. Fortunately, my husband is so used to my doing read-a-thons over the years that he's learned to leave me alone for most of the day, but there are still enough distractions in the house! Good luck for the rest of the day!

  2. I understand the distractions. Once my kids are in bed, I'm hoping I can get more reading in. Good luck and happy reading!

  3. Your hubby brought you dinner! That's a good man. Happy read-a-thon day and keep up the reading!
