Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon 2009

Okay, I'm going to attempt the Read-a-Thon for the first time today. Unfortunately, there are a few other things I will be attempting to do simultaneously so we'll see how that works. Multitasking, thy name is Patti.

So, for starters, I'm having coffee with Sylvia Plath. I thought I would begin with something short and, having never read The Bell Jar, this seemed a likely candidate.

I shall report in later with regular updates.

And, yes, for my knitting friends, I am also doing a bit of knitting whilst reading. How can I not? The knitting project is a cropped hoodie cardigan for Caitlin that I am adapting from a Knitty pattern. I'll add a link later because Sylvia is beckoning.

To all the Read-a-thon participants - Good Luck and happy reading!

Hi Patti: I'm a cheerleader for the first time too! You're in my first group to cheer for, so, for hour one: congratulations on signing up, and I hope the next 24 hours are filled with books, and people talking about books for you! Mostly, lovely reading time for you. And may be some knitting.....

I read The Bell Jar years ago. I really liked it when I read it. I have to reread it some time soon. Not that I've forgotten it, but I want to revisit Sylvia Plath again. I hope you enjoy it!

One day I hope to be able to participate to, but my children are too young to let me have 24 hours to read....

I hope you are enjoying being part of world-wide reading event. It's awesome, and I think you are too for being part of it.
