I’m prepped and ready to begin the readathon this year. This is my third year!!! I have a stack of graphic novels to break up the reading of longer books. New to me this year, I’ve included a few poetry books as well. I think I’m prepared with snacks as well, but I usually underestimate that end of things.
What I love about this marathon is that it keeps Dewey’s memory alive. I was not acquainted with her but only learned of her through the challenge, so I think the organizers and her friends should be applauded for efforts well-made. If I had a legacy after my passing, I would love for it to have something to do with books and literacy. I also love that I have an entire day of reading scheduled into my year and thus, I do so without the guilt of neglecting the non-reading world around me, lol.
Are you participating this year? Have you in years past? What do you love most about it?
