This is my library. Isn’t it pretty? What’s the occasion? National Library Week! So, Happy National Library Week everyone. Be sure to visit the American Library Association’s site to learn more about the history of National Library Week. This year’s theme is Create your own story@your library. Thanks to my library, I get to create my story everyday right here on my blog. So, without further ado, here is a recap of my very first Readathon. I didn’t participate in all 24 hours, but I came close. I participated in a few really cool mini-challenges and got some great ideas for future posts/features for my blog. I especially liked the Book Title Sentences and Book Puzzles. I read two books and listened to two audiobooks. I only finished one, but made a huge dent in the second. Hour 1 was 8am Saturday.
