Book Drunkard

“I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.” L.M. Montgomery

Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon – Hour One


William Etty1It’s a little before 5am here in Kelowna, BC, Canada.  My house is quiet and I’m up extra early.  Why?  I’m a die-hard book lover who is going to read for hours and hours today.  This happens twice a year and I look forward to it every time.  I don’t even mind getting up while it’s still dark – I mean, there are BOOKS, for goodness sake!  And, snacks!  No brainer…

As per usual, I have a massive stack of books I want to get through.  I’ll be lucky if I finish three – kids, pets, husbands, you know how it goes…  It’s hard to find a quiet space once the sun comes up!

So now, with a coffee in one hand (extra large) and a book in the other (The House at the End of Hope Street by Menna Van Praag), I’m off to enter another world for awhile.  But, don’t worry – I’ll be back several times today.  Come check out my blog for my progress – and if you want to know what snacks I’m devouring.  Say hello!  I’d love to hear from you.


PS.  If you’ve never heard of Dewey and the read-a-thon before, I suggest you start HERE.  This is everything you really need to know.
