Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon is October 18th. Are you in?

Hour 9 – Don’t Mind the Interruptions

I am going to be offline, but reading for the rest of the read-at-thon. I will update my stats tomorrow. Happy reading everyone!

I am about to start Mistletoe Magic by Melissa McClone (part of the Bar V5 Dude Ranch series). I am hosting a giveaway for the series and Mistletoe Magic is FREE on Smashwords: 

Readathon Mini-Challenge: 140 Character Cheering

Cheermission accepted! I am mixing this challenge with Hour 5. I am cheering, "Get your read on!" and then prancing in honor of my fellow read-a-thoners. Why? Cause you bookish types are the the best!

ReadyO? Let's Go! Get your read on [prance] Get your read on [prance] #RahRahReadathon #Readathon

Hour 7: Your Lucky Hour

I am going to listen to a few chapters of Shark Tank


Hour 6 — Read so Hard

Dewey’s Mini-Challenge Name Your Read-a-Thon
My Read-A-Thon Title is Phantom: Jump Start The Secret Life of The Legend

Hour 5 – Prance Your Way Through!

I love the word prance!

Hour 4 – Breakfast & Books

I am having a peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich with sour cream and onion potato chips while I listen to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. It is narrated by Ben Stiller. I haven't seen the movie adaptation yet. Have you?

Do you like an odd food combination? What is it?

Quotable Quotes

"Ichabod prided himself upon his dancing as much as upon his vocal powers. Not a limb, not a fibre about him was idle; and to have seen his loosely hung frame in full motion, and clattering about the room, you would have thought St. Vitus himself, that blessed patron of the dance, was figuring before you in person." -  The Legend of Sleepy Hollow 

Hour 3 – Take 5!

I'm probably gonna pass on the next photo challenges. Snapping pictures and uploading them takes me too much time. I need to upgrade my phone. SMH.

Hour 2 – Got Books?

Coffee or Tea? It's tea all of the way baby! #TeamCSLewis for sure.

Need some reading material during the read-a-thon? Join me for The Legend of Sleepy Hollow Read-Along and read Washington Irving's classic short story. Grab the free audiobook, download a free ebook, read it for free online, read your own copy, or borrow one from a friend or the library. Whatever works best for you.

Did you know that Amazon/Audible has a number of free audiobooks that are available without a subscription? I decided to "read" the ones that I featured in my 5th Annual Spooktacular Giveaway Blog Hop -  a few of the movie-televisionish ones. Be sure to drop by the post and enter to win.


Goooooood morning, read-a-thon-ers!

(That was said in my best Robin Williams/Good Morning Vietnam voice.)

I am coming around to visit. I have my Diet Coke and grapes on hand and I am ready to mingle!

Opening Meme

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? 
Atlanta, Georgia, United States

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
 Sixth Grave on the Edge by Daynda Jones

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
A peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich with sour cream and onion potato chips

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
This is my fourth read-a-thon! I love a good story. I read from most genres – except horror and poetry (though I try to read two books of each every year). 

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today?
I have decided to focus on visiting other participants with this read-a-thon. I am going to listen to audiobooks and try to visit as many people as possible.

Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon is an international reading challenge. For 24 hours, participants read books, post on their blogs (and/or social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, etc.) about their reading, and visit other readers’ blogs. Participants also take part in mini-challenges throughout the day and win prizes. There are five ways you can participate: Reader, Cheerleader, Mini-Challenge Host, Organizer and Prize Donor.

Are you participating?
