24 Hour Dewey Marathon-Starts Tomorrow

Will Wisteria Make It!!!!




The time is fast approaching and I am ready for the challenge. 24 hours of reading beginning at 8:00AM tomorrow morning. I know I will blog form time to time to let everyone know how tired I am. LOL....I'm counting on the cheerleaders to help me carry through to the finish line. I know my dogs will need a couple of breaks otherwise I will have to listen to a chorus of four howling greyhounds. Although quite hysterical to see, it can be a deafening cacophony to avoid at 2:00am. Wish me luck and I hope to chat with all those who are braving the 24 hour reading adventure.

Good luck! I will be reading with you - it is my first marathon so I hope my family survives...

Good luck! I just signed up this morning. My daughter and I are going to do it together. I don't think we'll last the 24 hours (she'll probably last longer than me, though), but I figure there are worse things she could be doing staying up late than reading. lol

I would love to do this too.. but the family would not allow it one bit. In fact, if I told them what I was trying to accomplish, they would purposely distract me to make me give up. They are SO supportive, aren't they?
But I'll check in on everyone, good luck to you! Ice cream + Books for 24 hours, that is JUST AWESOME.

Good luck, Wisteria!

I'm another one who couldn't handle the 24 hours. And, I've been sick this week, so I know I shouldn't. But, I wish you all the luck in the world. Enjoy the camaraderie of the challenge, the reading, and the food!

Hugs!
