Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon – Hour 24


Hmmm! I ran into issues! At 12pm I got a desperate call from work for someone to come and fill in for someone, and I was the only one close enough to come help in time. So, with my issues of not really been good at saying no, I went to work and had to abandon the read-a-thon from 12-7pm. Thank god I took a moment to sleep from 9am-12pm or I would have died at work. All of the effort I had to put in there made it hard to read more when I finally came home, so not much progress. So here are my final stats:

Hours Spent Reading: 12.5 hours

Total Pages: 335

Books Finished: The Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier

Books not Finished: Son of the Shadows by Juliet Marillier

Not quite the way I wanted it go. I shall try better next time!

Her are my answers to some challenges!

3-2-1 Action!

In this challenge, you will be taking a picture by “acting” out a scene (or character) from the current book you are reading.


I am Liadan from Son of the Shadows by Juliet Marillier on the front cover.

Book Jenga!

So what is Book Jenga I hear you mumble? Basically, just build the most impressive tower of books you can, then take a photo (or you can video it if you’re BookTubing). Leave a comment with a link to your creation below.



Since I only really have paper backs this is as high as I could go without them folding in on themselves. I took the picture with the calander still in it so you can get a sense of how high it is compared to the picture in the 3-2-1 challenge.
