I’ve have yet to made it through the complete 24 hours of a Dewey’s readathon and I won’t today. But in a spirit of support for authors, writers, storytellers and their ooh so necessary readers & story listeners, I’m doing the Dewey’s Readathon.
I’ll be updating this post periodically to share more about the Dewey’s readathon and to list short stories and books as I finish them.
