>Great news! Dewey is hosting a 24-hour Read-a-thon. The fun begins at 2 pm GMT on October 20th, 2007. Visit The Hidden Side Of A Leaf to find out how to sign up as well as other ways to contribute to this very cool event. In addition, the wise Dewey has suggestions about what and how to read so you don’t suffer from (sad but true — it could happen) reader burnout.
Speaking of burnout, I’ve been tapped (but it feels more like bludgeoned) to teach elementary schoolchildren every other Saturday. I looked at my calendar and Whoo! To my relief, October 20th is a childfree Saturday. Ironically, I’ll probably be reading some of the juvenile stuff I’ve been stockpiling.
October 20th will be the day that I crack open that fresh bottle of Visine I brought from the States. Chilled cucumber slices might also be nice…for my eyes, but I also like them for munching. (There’s a delicious mixture of mashed soybeans and red pepper paste that they sell over here, and it makes a wonderful dip that’s also nicely thick, so there’s almost no danger of dip-drip if (!) I decide to combine reading and eating.)
What to wear? What to read? This is going to be so much fun…I hope Dewey gets a huge turnout!
