Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-Thon: Book List
Friday April 20, 2012 at 3:10 am |


Dewey’s Dewey’s Dewey’s…let’s dew it!  Okay forgive my bad joke…The read-a-thon starts tomorrow and I’m uber excited about it.  Especially since Beautiful Mom is going to participate with me.  It seems as if my time zone is to start at 8am…yeah, that’s not going to happen for me as I’m just getting to sleep around 5 or 6.  But I should be up and raring to go by or before Noon.  I’m sure my Mom will start on time though since she’s an early bird.

Anyways, I finally decided on some books to try and get through during the read-a-thon and wanted to share with you all.

My List:

Mom’s List:

Me and my Mom may change some of out picks at the last minute.  I guess it all just depends on how we’re feeling.  But so far, this is it.  I’m actually really anxious to start The Woman in Black.  I don’t know why I’m so eager to scare the bejesus out of myself.


My sister is going to join in on the fun as well.  She’s really not a big reader so her goal is to just finish reading:

She loved the movie and I kept telling her how good the books were.  My sister NEVER reads unless it’s something political, so this is like a minor miracle!  YAY for Pooh!  Good to have you on board!

What are your reading for the marathon?  Do you anticipate changing your mind or do you just plan to go with the flow?

  1. It looks like a great day of reading for both you and your mom! Have fun!

  2. LOL, why? I like the joke.

    I LOVE the variety in your reading list! I’ll have to stop by tomorrow to see how you’re doing. : ) Will you be posting updates?

    • Jade Jade says:

      YES! I will definitely be posting update on my reading. I’ll be trying to keep up with Mom too…but she’s a faster reader than I am.

  3. I rarely wake up early to read too — it’s usually more sleeping really, really late so that it’s impossible to wake up early LOL! x) But I love how diverse your whole list is, and I love how your mom is doing the challenge with you even more!

    I’m still trying to get my own mom to read more but she’s convinced that it’s a waste of time… Although I think it has more to do with the fact that she doesn’t want to look silly like me when I burst out laughing at random times haha… x)


    • Jade says:

      I totally burst out with laughter randomly reading books too! And I don’t care how I look. I would hope it’d spark an interesting conversation.

  4. Yay! Get the whole family involved. I love it! I’m loving your mom’s list and I can’t wait to see a review of The Woman in Black. I’m easily scared too but I still want to know how you do with it.

    • Jade Jade says:

      The Woman in Black should be good. I wanted to see the movie but missed it while it was out. Guess I’ll have to wait til it drops on DVD.

  5. I love it! It’s a family thang. My mom is into the idea but doesn’t want to commit. LOL! Figures!

  6. What a great day! My husband was going to do it with me but he had to work! Enjoy!!


  7. Nise' says:

    It is so great that your family is reading wit you! Hope you all have a great day of reading.

  8. Back again! This time in my official capacity as cheerleader! Rah! Rah! Rah! Yay for reading! Hope you and your mom are having a wonderful day!

  9. Looks like it’s a family affair ! Your pile is so big, best of luck

    Happy Reading !
