It’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.
