Dewey's 24 hour readathon

I will be updating this post throughout the day.

Opening questions.

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? I am reading from outtside Lancaster, Pa.
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? Gemina
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?Celery and peanut butter
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I am a recently disabled 56 year old woman.  I homeschooled all three of my children.  I have 3 granddaughters that I adore to pieces.  Books are one of my favorite things.
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 will try to spend less time on the computer and more time reading. 
Start of hour 3

Pages read 98

have a slight headache because I didn't get alot of sleep last night.  I took advil so hopefully will be feeling better soon.

Hubby got home from work so talked to him for a bit before he laid down to sleep.  So should have uninterrupted reading for at least 3 hours.

Slow going.  But I hope to get at least two books read.

Finished Gemina
Currently reading A Sister's Wish by Shelley Shepard Gray

Hour 16 update.

I will going to bed in a bit but I will starting An Amish Family Christmas by Shelley Shepard Gray

I finished A Sister's Wish by Shelley Shepard Gray.

So I achieved my goal of finishing two books.

Happy reading for all of you who are continuing through the night.


  1. I haven't read Illuminae yet but I heard it was a great read so I hope you enjoy Gemina!
    Happy Reading!

  2. I *loved* Illuminae when I read it earlier this year so fingers crossed Gemina is as good! A perfect readathon choice.

  3. No worries about taking a nap as long as you're having fun! Happy Readathon!
