My April 2018 #readathon progress post! books, pages, and my #giveaway!

This post will be stuck to my front page, and updated throughout the readathon. For reference, please see my previous post. I woke up late today, so I did not get started reading until about 11 AM – the readathon started at 8 am! I’m disappointed that I couldn’t get up earlier, but hopefully I … Continue reading

It’s the #readathon! Find out what I’ll be reading and enter my giveaway. Also, some sad news.

Hi everyone, It is with a broken heart that I have to share the news that one of our family dogs, Penny, passed away yesterday. She lived 14 years happily among cats, dogs, humans and even a couple of turtles who loved her. I got to see her in February when I visited home and … Continue reading

Raising money for Puerto Rico, and why I’m doing the 24 hour #readathon

On October 21, Dewey’s 24 readathon takes place! I participated last April, although I read nowhere near 24 hours. I plan on reading for at least half the day – if i can hit around 18 hours, I’d be really happy! This will finally get me to knock a few books off my never-ending TBR … Continue reading

Quotes from Coetzee’s novel, “Disgrace” [readathon post]

As part of the 24 hour readathon this year, I decided to re-read – this time finishing! – J.M. Coetzee’s acclaimed masterpiece, “Disgrace.” It’s an important, complicated book on racism, sexism, and exploitation; I can’t recommend it enough! I collected some animal related quotes from the book, along with some images and links. What do … Continue reading
