Great job to all you Read-a-thon participants!

I was going to try to write a limerick for Hour 22 challenge of the 24-hour Dewey's Read-A-Thon, but my brain seems to be turning to mush, even though I haven't been reading for 20+ hours like some of you have.

I've been trying to figure out ways to put together rhymes for readers and leaders or book and hook or Dewey and hui (hui is a Hawaiian term meaning club or group and is the only thing I could think of that rhymes with Dewey) but I just can't put it all together into one cohesive thought. So, instead, I'll just say this:

Great job, everyone who participated in this read-a-thon. I couldn't quite get myself into the right frame of mind to commit to it, but I'm really proud of everyone else who did. Sorry I didn't make it around to be a better cheerleader. You all did great, and if you are still going, you are almost done!!  

Thanks so much to Nymeth, Trish, and Hannah for putting this together. What a great tribute to Dewey and the community that she played such a crucial role in building.

Thank you for dropping by. I am surprised I can still write in full sentences. It is a good thing the last book I picked is a page turner or I'd be passed out. What total fun though.

I'm so bummed that I missed this! Who is primarily hosting it now? I want to be sure and get in on the next one.

Meryl-I'm not sure what the plans will be going forward, but this read-a-thon was organized by Nymeth (Things Mean A Lot), Trish (Hey, Lady! Whatcha Readin'?), and Hannah (Word Lily)-links to their sites are in my post above. The web site for the read-a-thon is also linked above, but the address is 24hourreadathon.com.

Again, congrats to all who participated and a big congratulations on a successful event to the dedicated ladies who put it all together!
