Sometimes one hour here and there isn’t enough to immerse yourself in the reading experience.
Sometimes you just need to take 24…
To treat yourself to your favorite authors,
To celebrate with other readers,
To honors those who showed you the joy of reading.
Put on some comfy clothes,
Find a quiet corner with a good light and room to stretch out or curl up,
Stack your reading materials to one side and your favorite snacks to the other,
Have a good supply of refreshing drinks at the ready.
Because …. another Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon Saturday has begun.
Pass the bon-bons, please.
Updates will be posted here with the completion of each book.
First book completed – yay!
THANK MY LUCKY SCARS
by Ward Foley

This is a wonderfully inspirational autobiography about giving you best in life and love, whether it is to yourself, others or god. Ward Foley, born with Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC) and not expected to live, tells the journey of his life into his forties — sharing laughter, tears and love – through incredible pain, 30 surgeries by age 24, falling in love, coaching little league and finding his calling with hospice patients.
A WALK IN THE SNARK
by Rachel Thompson
e-book (153 pgs)
Relationships are tricky. There is a Mancode. And there is Chickspeak. And never the twain shall meet. Except that it does, frequently, in a relationship. So, your best defense is a sense of humor and UN interpreter or — A WALK IN THE SNARK. Ms. Thompson’s lively wit and keen observation of human nature makes this a fun fast read. And yes, why aren’t our week days alphabetized?

DON’T SQUAT WITH YOUR SPURS ON:
A Cowboy’s Guide to Life
by Texas Bix Bender
paperback (138 pgs.)
A wonderful collection of Will Rogers-esque funny but true cowboy witticisms. Top three favorite lines:
– Don’t squat with your spurs on.
– The only way to drive cattle fast is slowly.
– You can never step in the same river twice.
by Jennifer Roberson
Living alone on the prairie after her family is brutally murder, a young woman tough life becomes even more complicated, when the greedy bank make a claim on her family land and a wounded man needs a place to hide from a vicious gang that is tracking him. As an earlier Roberson work, it lacks the polished plotting of her later fantasy series.
