I had a great day Saturday, April 26th and although I didn't produce great "stats" I did learn some new things and found several new blogs to follow.
1. I love learning about books - I know very little - I just learned the word "genre" when I started with the readathon several years ago - yes - - - I'm not ashamed to admit that either. So I was very happy to do the mini-challenge that taught us about first editions of books and how to tell what edition you were reading. It's a wonderful feeling to learn new things at 55!! Kudos to all of the challenge providers!
2. I met a new friend from Barcelona, Spain! She commented on my post! Spain!! She encouraged me to use audio books as a way to continue the reading/listening if you have to run and do a task - like laundry or lunch! She too shared in my wonderment that 800+ people were joining us that very day to read! I am following Camilla from Spain!!
3. Lastly, I was pleased that my hubs always supports my "readathon weekends" He himself does not read that much - but he seems to "get it" that I look forward to Dewey's every six months - - - and he plays along . . .
Thank you to the ones of you who work so hard to put this all together!! I appreciate it all! Thank you cheerleaders and challengers and prize givers!! Until October . . .
