Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon is Almost Here!

Well, the read-a-thon starts in about 16 hours - Yay!  My kids are all accounted for tomorrow and my husband knows to keep himself busy. . .  I declared earlier this week that I would be on mom strike starting tomorrow morning for 24 hours.  My daughters thought that was cool (interpret - no mom to interfere with their plans. . .) and my son adores his Aunt Kim so is always very excited to spend time at her house. 

I went to the store today and bought some snacks for tomorrow - some healthy (grapes, strawberries), some not-so-much (3 Musketeers, Cadbury Eggs) and some inbetween (Pretzels and Chip Dip, Wheat Thins).  As for actual meals - I am leaving that up to my husband - hopefully he will make sure that I get some real nourishment.  I also have plenty of tea, coffee, soda and I guess I should throw some water in there as well - Maybe I will make some sweet tea.

As for list of books - I have added a list below - but I am going to keep it kind of loose this year.  These are all review books - some are past due so I am going to concentrate on those.  I plan to throw in some kids books that I am reviewing to give me a sense of accomplishment.  I also am going to be reading some books on my Nook.  Hopefully this will keep it mixed up enough.  We are finally supposed to have a nice day tomorrow so I will get to sit in my three-season room and read!  Might even sit outside if it gets nice enough, who knows?

Is anybody else participating in the Read-a-thon?  Go here for more information.  Hope to see you all reading tomorrow!
