Dewey's Read-a-Thon...Hour 1

It's that time of year again. And I'm super excited to participate in this one. It will be my third Dewey Read-a-Thon!!!

It is hour one and here is my summary so far...

Book I'm reading (or more like re-reading)...

A Walk to RememberA Walk to Remember

Hour 1 meme...

Where are you reading from today? The new home in the my bedroom. (The last two read-a-thons, I read at the old place)

3 facts about me …1. I'm a student. 2. I'm double majoring in education and english. 3. I'm a native Californian and just living in the Philippines for a bit.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? No particular number. I'm just going to get through as many books as I can.

Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)? No goal this time. I just want to enjoy it. Usually when I have a specific number of books to read, I feel pressed for time and more stressed. So I'm going to take it hour by hour this time : )

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?

Enjoy your books and don't worry so much about how many books NEED to be read. This is an individual thing. So have fun with it!!!

***Now go and grab your fave cup of tea (or whatever beverage you prefer) and HAPPY readings***


  1. So glad to comment as the first one ;)
    So my name is Agata and I am your personal cheerleader for the next... 23 hours or so!
    Have a great day reading and enjoy those pages turned. I will come back to check on you later.

    Cheers from Poland,

  2. Sounds like a perfect way to start the RAT (what a funny acronym huh?). I will also be here to help keep you company for your reading pleasure. :) Be back soon to check up.

  3. Hello Aquedita & Mister...thanks for stopping by and I'm glad others are checking in on me. Cheerleaders and supports are always great during the read-a-thon!!! Gracias!!!
