Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon: Hours 5-8

Local Time : 2:00 p.m. MST

We're moving right along here. Getting into the swing of things and figuring out how to work my new system to minimize distractions from reading. I haven't participated in as many mini-challenges as last year, but I'm enjoying seeing everyone else's ideas and responses. 

For the next four hours, the goal is to do a bit more Instagramming, eat some lunch, check up on the progress of a few friends, and then get rolling on my third book of the read-a-thon. Darian's goals? Get comfy. (And probably try and sneak more string cheese...he's already eaten three.)

  1. Way to go Elle and Darian. You both are doing great.

  2. You're doing so well - and congratulations on avoiding distractions and reading! I've been the opposite this time around and I've read a fraction of my usual page count so far. Oh well...

    Get comfy, enjoy your reading - and all hail the string cheese! :P

    1. A fraction? I still think you've done quite well. I'm trying to figure out what I've done with all of those other minutes...

  3. Hang in there dear reader! We’re almost halfway through the readathon and we can do it for another 12 hours!

  4. You're in the home stretch, keep up the great job reading!
