Did you hear the news?
Dewey’s 24-hour Readathon is this weekend!!!
24 hours of reading and celebrating books!
It has been a while since I have been able to participate thanks to my kids, but I am going to take Saturday for myself. Because, after all, I am worth it.
Seriously, a day devoted to reading is essentially Christmas, your birthday, and the last day of school all rolled into one. Good books, the cheerleading, the mini-challenges – you never want it to end.
Granted, when you share your excitement with others, you may get funny looks.
Also, your family may get a little tired of being ignored. But it is all good.
After all, days like this are what we live for.
Then there’s the food because it is essential that one stays well-nourished while reading all day long.
So, this Saturday, you can find me mostly on Instagram and Twitter. Oh, I’m also on Snapchat too. I don’t know what I am going to eat. I don’t know what I am going to read. I just know I will be doing both. Will you?
Amazing use of GIFs. I want to use that Colbert one basically all the time forever and ever.
Thanks, Kim! I could use all of them over again. It was a lot of fun to hunt for them.
CHEERS! (Love that Wisconsin Food Pyramid.)
I snorted at the Wisconsin food pyramid. I love it. Excellent gif useage as well. I told my husband for my bday/Mother’s day I want 24 hours of no one touching me. I think for that I’m going to go to Wisconsin-enjoy those same foods and hide and read. Definitely not in the cards for me this weekend. Enjoy it! You are worth it!
Thanks, Amanda! It was a lot of fun.
It is a super fun event. Of which I do not think I can participate in. All day meet again this weekend and a talkative friend means no reading 😉 Read something good, will ya?
Boo! I hope the Girl had a great track meet and that you were able to sneak in some reading after it ended!
Enjoy! I can never do the 24 hour readathons because Weekends are just too busy for us. This Saturday I’m meeting up with folks from my LibraryThing group at Powell’s so at least I’m doing something reading related. I will however be doing the Bout of Books again in May. Love my excuses to read.
I hope you had a blast at Powell’s yesterday!
I LOVE THIS POST!!!!!! Yay! Can’t wait!!!
Ha ha ha, Bitch, I am reading! That’s the best gif ever 😀
You know I’ll be reading and eating up a storm. I might be out of beer though. Hmmm…shall I hit the store (again) or just have a glass of wine instead?
I’ll see you on Twitter and Instagram!
Ha! I thought of you specifically with the Wisconsin Food Pyramid!
Yay, I love this!! I’m so glad you’re joining in, too! Can’t wait to see your updates on Saturday. Happy reading and enjoy the day!
