Honouring Dewey

I had only been blogging about 2-3 months when Dewey passed away, but I had already discovered her blog and heard many wonderful things about her. It was a shock to go on her blog and read the wonderful words that her husband had posted. Her passing showed me what a great community bloggers - especially book bloggers were - and it made me want to "meet" more of you. Dewey set the bar so high and was so involved and dedicated. She is going to be missed for a long time.

I was glad to read this. This is the first Dewey Reading Marathon I've been exposed to it. I thought it must have something to do with the dewey decimal system. It's nice to know it is to honour a person. Do you have a link to the blog?
