 Omg... so this was the most amazing experience of my life!! Last time Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon came around I had to work, but this time I actually got a lot of reading done and I participated in so many challenges. I read a number of 3 total books and 466 pages... wow I'm surprised and I feel so proud of myself. I mean I didn't quite meet my goal, but that's like almost double of what I read last time.  I want to thank all my amazing cheerleaders that cheered me on and kept me going when I felt like I couldn't read anymore... ya'll are the best<3
Well until next time...
