Dewey's Read-a-thon: Update #1

Time Period: 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

# Pages Read: 170
Total Pages:170

Books Read: some of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and currently reading How I Changed by Life by Todd Strasser

Challenges: Introduction Questionnaire


As soon as I started the readathon, I had to take a break to attend my Weight Watchers meeting. #Priorities. I picked up some breakfast and ate with my husband. He has to work later today, but he wants to hang out and all I'm trying to do is read. It's been kind of a slow start, but I'll make up for it later. 

How I Changed My Life has some characters and storylines that parallel the movie Drive Me Crazy so after this readathon is over, I'm going to see how they are connected and if Todd Strasser was one of or the writer for the movie.



  1. I like your idea of spending a certain amount of time on a more challenging read, so that it gets included, but doesn't get you bogged down either: good thinking!

    "I am a very quick reader – I have as I’ve said, very large, squarish eyes that seem to be able to fit over a good patch of the page." Jane Gardam
    Here’s to large, squarish eyes, perfect for Read-a-Thon-ing! Keep it up! (Team Smarties)

  2. A slow start is better than NO start. Have fun readathon-ing!! Go Team Smarties!! “So, please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install, a lovely bookcase on the wall.” (Roald Dahl)

  3. Love that you chose "Pride and Prejudice" as one of your book choices. My #2 favorite book of all time. Enjoy and Happy Read-a-thon! Feel free to stop by Stiletto Storytime if you get a chance.


  4. You're reading Pride and Prejudice during the readathon. I love it! Keep up the good work!
