Dewey’s October 23rd 24-Hour Readathon!


Sign-ups have opened for the next Dewey’s 2h-Hour Readathon!

I always sign up for these events, look forward to them and then either forget or life gets in the way. I’d like to see if I can read for a good long while on Saturday the 23rd.

With November crammed full of reading events (more on those in later posts), I hope to get some reading started toward those events and maybe finish another fun read from Dean Street Press/Furrowed Middlebrown. I get absolutely nothing for mentioning them–I’ve just come to really enjoy the pleasant books they republish. I also have a few Netgalley books I’m behind on–so maybe one of those? Then there’s Autumn’s seasonal reading and one or two lagging on my shelves that I’ve been meaning to read. What do you think? Will I succeed in even picking up an actual book? Since the COVID lockdown print reading has not gone well for me.

Here are a few of my possible Readathon reading choices

Springathon 2021: May 1–14, 2021

Thanks to A Curious Reader [her blog] or her Youtube channel for hosting along with: Emma @A Cup Of Books Juliana Doris @all D books Heidi @My Reading Life

I will be honest and say I don’t know if I’ll get an entire book read on such short notice (I just found this readathon today!). But I love a good readathon and so do many of the people who read my blog. So, I’m at least helping to (belatedly) get the word out.

However, I am reading some seasonal books this year so I will definitely be dipping in again to these two:


One Woman’s Year by Stella Martin Currey (the gray Persephone book)

Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady by Edith Holden (a re-read)

Diary of a Young Naturalist by Dana McAnulty



The prompts are optional, but fun. Themes for your reading.






Here are a few of my most recent nature reads

Wintering: A Season With Geese by Stephen Rutt

The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben

The Mushroom Hunters by Langdon Cook
