Dewey 24 Hour Read-A-Thon Minichallenge: Get the Heck Out of Here

  1. What steps did you take to ensure you’d be able to read as much as possible today?  Sadly, not very many.  I told my husband on Friday I was doing this.  He looked at me like I was crazy.  I reassured him that many of the books could be read with our kids.  As it happened, they were mostly busy doing other things, so I did almost all my reading alone.
  2. Of those steps,  which proved to be the most beneficial to your day? Well, reading with my kids was really fun.  Also, doing the minichallenge was great fun and helped me stay involved.  Having a plan about what to read, and some goals, were helpful as well.
  3. Is there anything you might do differently next time?  I will plan in advance to have a sitter or to have Tom take the kids elsewhere for part of the day.  I will have pre-prepared food on hand.
