Curious about Readathon? There’s still time to join!

These are the books I’m choosing from this time around. Mostly poetry, with a little fiction, and there maybe a few other things I turn to on my Kindle if I get bored. See you all around tomorrow!

Readathon! Spring 2016


It’s time for Dewey’s Read-A-Thon! I’m keeping track of my progress here and posting on Twitter and maybe a little on Instagram whenever there is an update.

Jolene and I are planning on recording a sort of Readathon themed episode of Pickled Okra today, so be on the lookout for that.

Here are the two stacks I’m working from. Not pictured are a few books on my Kindle that I might end up reading.

Readathon! Fall 2015

It’s time for Dewey’s Read-A-Thon! I’m keeping track of my progress here and posting on Twitter (@ElizabethMelle, #readathon) whenever there is an update. This year I’m cheering with #TeamMagnolia, so look for their cheers floating around blogs and Twitter.

If you’re around during Hour 18, check out my mini-challenge!

Goals: Finish TEN titles and read 600 pages. I looked at my stack and I think 9 is a very doable number based on the books I plan to read, so 10 would be a nice challenge.
