Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-Thon (4)
Thursday April 25, 2013 at 12:00 am |


Well I’ve had a nice long break from the blog and I miss it dearly and you all.  I’m also feeling a lot better and want to get back in the swing of things around here.  I’ve still been reading, there are so many books I won’t have reviews for because I didn’t bother to write out my reviews as I finished.  Anyways, I figure what better way to come back to the blog than by participating in Dewey’s Read-a-Thon.

I finally collected the first 6 books of the Narnia series and will be reading them for the marathon.  Now I had no idea that C.S. Lewis wrote another book AFTER the original series that was meant to be a prequel to all the other books.  But according to Erin over at The Paperback Stash,  the reading order has been mixed up and there are folks that want to read it chronologically, and others by publication date, she has a GREAT post about it!  The only problem for me going chronologically is the fact that the prequel mentions and talks of Narnia and things as if the reader is already familiar, which can get confusing.  So I’ll be reading by publication date.


What is Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon? (Taken straight from the Dewey site)

For 24 hours, we read books, post to our blogs about our reading, and visit other readers’ blogs. We also participate in mini-challenges throughout the day. It happens twice a year, in April and in October.

It was created by the beloved Dewey (her blog has since been taken down, so the link won’t work). The first one was held in October 2007. Dewey died in late 2008. We’re still saddened by her absence, but the show must go on. The read-a-thon was renamed to honor its founder in 2009.

Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon is hosted by Trish and Shesten, with help from volunteers.

    So glad you are feeling better, Jade! *hugs* I read the prequel (The Magician’s Newphew) and loved it, and read the first four Narnia books years ago. I’ve always meant to get back to them. I hope you have fun in the read-a-thon!
