DEWEY’S 24 HR READATHON: Set Up

It’s 6:30 a.m. Time to “set up”

I didn’t have to set an alarm to wake up this morning, April 24, 2021; it is the day of the READATHON.

It is raining this morning, so I think I’ll wear this shirt:

Next order of business is to select some books to read:

Most of these I have started, so I will tackle them first; after all, my primary goal is to finish books currently “in progress.”

READY TO ROLL!

Author: Rae Longest

This year (2019) finds me with 50 years of teaching "under my belt." I have taught all levels from pre-K "(library lady" or "book lady"--volunteer) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled in my Advanced Writing class at the university where I have just completed 30 years. My first paying teaching job was junior high, and I spent 13 years with ages 12-13, the "difficult years." I had some of the "funnest" experiences with this age group. When I was no longer the "young, fun teacher," I taught in an elementary school setting before sixth graders went on to junior high, teaching language arts blocs, an assignment that was a "dream-fit" for me. After completing graduate school in my 40s, I went on to community college, then university teaching. Just as teaching is "in my blood," so is a passion for reading, writing, libraries, and everything bookish. This blog will be open to anyone who loves books, promotes literacy and wants to "come out and play."

  1. Great start to the day Rae. I had planned on participating, but after a week of online learning with my granddaughter, I am really dragging today and have so much to catch up on. Enjoy the readathon.

      1. That is great. I will definitely participate next year, hopefully nothing will interfere. Did you stay up for the full 24 hours?
