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.
