Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon

dreamstime_readathongI don’t know who came up with this great button for Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon, but I’m thinking my husband may be more supportive if he sees it 🙂

This will be my first read-a-thon and I am really looking forward to it.  I have a stack of books (you can see some of them here), mostly less than 300 pages and have even got a few audio books to rest my eyes.  I like challenges and this one is right up my alley.  And because I sometimes can’t stop myself from going too far, I am making it a goal to stay awake and read for the whole 24 hours!  This is only a goal, sometimes a body does what it wants, but I think I can do it.  Of course, sometimes I’m a delusional.

So, have you signed up and are you aiming for the whole 24 hours?

Teaser Tuesday – Rough Country

teasertuesdays31Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following: Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!). Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

“George is a drunk,” Sanders said.  “Every day that he works, he stops at the liquor store and picks up a fifth and he takes it home and drinks it.  He’s trying to drink himself to death.  He did that last night.  He was in no shape to ambush anybody.”

“Any particular reason he’s doing that?” Virgil asked.

“Not as far as I know.  I think he’s tired of being here,” Sanders said.
