Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon! Mid-Event Check-In  #DeweysApril2022 #deweysreadathon #readathon @readathon 

I have been doing well today. Although a friend stopped by for an impromptu visit, I finished two books that I had started. I read the last half of I Must Betray You by Ruta Sepetys, and listened to The Kitchen Front. I am now reading One Step Too Far by Lisa Gardner and Listening to The Magnolia Palace by Fiona Davis. I reread, so I could write reviews, 4 non-fiction picture books in the Little People, Big Dreams Series.

Ready? Set! Read! Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon! #DeweysApril2022 #deweysreadathon #readathon @readathon

Today is the day for the first Dewey’s Readathon for 2022. I started early as I couldn’t sleep. I am almost finished reading I Must Betray You by Ruta Sepetys and I am listening to The Kitchen Front by Jennifer Ryan when eating, doing dishes, working in the garden etc. I won’t read for 24 hours as I can’t stay up that long, but 18 hours is my goal. I started at 5:30 a.m, so that will take me to 11:30 tonight.

Saturday Morning For Kids: Night Night, Zoo #Bookreview @amyparker

This meme was started by Rae Longest at Powerful Women Readers. As I am a grandmother, who loves to read to her grandchildren, a mother who loved to read to and with her children, and a retired teacher librarian, this meme really attracted me.

This is a book I won in a blog draw and was just able to pick it up from my cousin on my way home from Florida. I can’t tell you how many times I have read this to my grandson over the last two week.

Passing Peace – Poem by Ali Grimshaw

It is National Poetry Month and not only is this a beautiful poem, but one to think about Peace. Visit Ali Grimshaw’s site: Flashlight Batteries for poetry all year.

when he first drew the lines he had no idea how far that circle would roll how it would arrive on windshields, bridges, believers show itself on countryside barns, walls within cityscapes live on t-shirts worn by people of every color he didn't know and he let his heart draw forward a circle of himself, arms outstretched today this rocksolid symbol kept pocketwarm for peace she is determined to hold traveled with her in faith to pass onto small hands. ©Ali Grimshaw 2022 "I was in despair. Deep despair," he wrote, according to the book TM: The Untold Stories Behind 29 Classic Logos. "I drew myself: the representative of an individual in despair with hands palm outstretched outwards and downwards in the manner of Goya's peasant before the firing squad.
