Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon

 It's Readathon Day!  One of my favorite days of the year.  If you aren't familiar with this event, visit the official site.  There's still time to sign up.  

I created my own graphic to use for this readathon because I'm going to be reading on a rainy day - no sunny afternoon on the swing this time around. 

I have my TBR pile ready to go - but it's always subject to change.  I'll be starting my day be reading from THE good book, then move on to these other good books.  I can't wait to get into "The Girl on the Train" by Paula Hawkins.  It was recommended by a lady I met in a bookstore while on vacation.  She was ready to be done sightseeing and return to her motel room to read the last chapter.  "The Day the World Came to Town" by Jim  DeFede was also discovered on our recent trip to Florida.  It was recommended by a man from Newfoundland who was understandably proud of the people in his homeland.  "A Claim of Her Own" is by a favorite author (who also lives in Nebraska), Stephanie Grace Whitson. 

Snacks are always a popular subject during Readathon - one that often takes as much planning as the book list.  I'm trying to keep it light and healthy (relatively) today, so I'm going with fruit, hummus and crackers, and Trader Joe's Blueberry Vanilla Chevre.

It's 7:00 a.m. - opening bell for twenty-four hours of fun.  Let's get reading.


  1. The Girl of the Train is high on my TBR list. Here's to a productive and satisfying readathon day.

  2. Looks like you've got good books and yummy snacks - enjoy the day :)
    I'll be reading today too. Just finiched my forst book, Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry, a YA classic and perfect way to start the day.
    Happy reading!!!

  3. I hope you like Girl on a Train. I think it's a perfect choice for the readathon--I read it a few months ago and couldn't put it down once I started. Great book! Enjoy your reading!

  4. Blueberry Vanilla Chèvre? I have got to get me some of that!
