Dewey Readathon

It’s update time 🙂

Don’t forget you can find me most of the day on Twitter and Instagram
and will be updating my status on Goodreads as well while I read.

I will update every 3-4 hours.

I was able to do 2 mini challenges and will do some more the rest of the day. I had a slow start this morning since I realized I wasn’t as prepared as I thought I was and had a few distraction with the kids. I am also a slow reader but I am almost finished with my first book. Every hour I plan to take a 5 minute break and every 3-4 hours a 15 minute break to update the post. Thanks to everyone that has been cheering me on. I am really hoping I can make it the 21 more hours.


These are the books I read so far:

This is the book I am currently reading:

This is the book I plan to read next:

Charity Total

Changed this a little since the other 10 cent was pretty much the same as the first one so I merged them together and made it 20 cents instead 🙂

  • $5 for every book read:
  • 20 cents for each comment, likes or favorites plus tweets I receive from the readathon
    (on any Dewey’s Post: Twitter, FB, Instagram, Blog): $13.40
  • $2 for every hour missed:
  • $1 for every hour participated: $4
  • $1 for every mini-challenge completed: $2
  • $1 for every person that donates to the link above:
Just let me know in the comments that you donated. You don’t have to have a specific amount, $1 will go to my total just for donating. So if you want to donate a $1 that is awesome any amount will help.

  1. You’re doing a great job! I’m hoping to finish at least one book today but I’m still so distracted. Oh well, at least I’m using it more productively by visiting blogs instead of just being distracted in general.

  2. My chores are distracting me. I have listened mostly to audiobooks this morning because large trash pick up is Monday so getting stuff out to the curb. I hope after lunch to sit my butt on the couch/read 🙂

    • My kids have been a bit distracting with all the talking to me. They are also playing and it usually consists of a lot of yelling, screaming and loud giggling. I have headphones on for when it get to loud and listen to some soundtrack music. I wish I was an audiobook person because I could do a few things around the house but it will have to wait till tomorrow 🙂

  3. I don’t have kids to distract me but I distract myself really easily and I am off to a slow start as well but at least we are reading! 🙂 Good luck!

    • Yup, I am almost done with my first book. I think short breaks in between will help get the kids to ask questions or tell me stuff when I take a break 🙂
