Good morning! Happy Sunday! Hazah! (I don’t know why I said that). I made it to hour 17 yesterday of the Dewey Read-A-Thon (HAZAH!). Not bad for someone who decided to participate at the last-minute. 😀
I listened to two audio books and started a third. I finished one book. The reason so much audio is because I could participate in the mini challenges while listening, and cook and do other things while listening. It actually worked out wonderfully. You will see those reviews up this week.
As for what came in this week, I am in audio heaven. I finally have a few great audio contacts that keep me moving forward in my listening. Thank you audio peeps!!! I can not even tell you how excited that makes me.
The Art Of Secrets by James Klise – audio
The Summer Of Letting Go by Gae Polisner – audio
One Safe Place by Tania Unsworth – audio
Chestnut Street by Maeve Binchy – audio
City Of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett
Save The Date by Mark May Andrews
Along with the Read-A-Thon yesterday I mentioned I was reading for charity and listed MS as that is what I am raising money for now for the bike ride I will be completing in June. I was contributing by page count and minute count and I invited you all to feel free to sponsor my reading as well.
I wound up between my reading and those of you who sponsored me (Thank you!) with a total of $107.80 for MS! HAZAH! (There’s that word again!)
The winner from the people who sponsored me is: Christina who will get to choose from one of the books I offered yesterday.
And now I must get ready. I am helping with a benefit dinner today for Camp Benedict that starts at noon. I am heading now to help with the set up and will be back late afternoon.
Have a super Sunday! Readathoners rest up today, or as I see today is overcast and rainy here… maybe I will come home to read my book. 🙂

Congrats on the Readathon….I am eager to read Save the Date and Chestnut Street. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
Thanks Laurel! Busy day but a good one 🙂
well done to you! can you listen while you help prep for the dinner, or will you get distracted and sit down in a corner eating somebodies starter?
LOL…. never had any errors…. I find it calming 🙂
Congrats on making it to hour 17. Good for you. Doing audio books was a great idea. I wasn’t able to participate, but I hope to some day!
They are a lot of fun – what Dewey started is amazing….
Great job, Sheila! I’m glad you’re enjoying your audiobooks. I have yet to participate in a read-a-thon as a book blogger. But one of these days, I will put everything else aside and read, read, read!
If I have a heads up on the date I try to keep it open so I can participate 🙂 It is fun to dedicate a day to books.
I’m pretty sure you let out a Huzzah because you made 17 hours of the readathon. That’s definitely a huzzah kind of moment. 🙂
Thanks Trish – good point! Huzzah!!!
Great job on the readathon and the fundraising for your charity.
I didn’t get to participate this time but next time I will have to include some audio books. It would give my eyes a rest too.
I enjoyed the Mary Kay Andrews book. I was excited to see that it is set in Savannah.
I just realized that I won the book from your readathon giveaway. Thanks!
