Seven hundred and fifty six pages…
About 5 hours of sleep…
and I can’t wait for October!
And I can’t help but think Dewey is smiling down on all of us, delighting in our literary adventures, maybe even joining in through a majestic library in the sky. For I still can’t picture heaven without a library in it. Love you Dewey and miss you so much!
The readathon comes to a close and with it another epic day of reading, reading, reading. I read 5 books and over 100 pages of The Name of the Wind. I am blissed out happy and, well, kinda ready for a nap!

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
100% likely, and, as much as I’d like to try cheerleading, I expect I’ll read again.
Had fun. Now. Breakfast. Then a nap. Maybe not in that order. *yawn*
