Dewey’s Read-a-Thon (which will be referred to as RAT from this point on) begins in less than 24 hours!!

For all of my non RAT’er readers, I apologize but my blog will potentially be bombarded with RAT posts!

I'm really excited for tomorrow morning!  I have only read two books this month (**gasp**, I know) so I’m looking forward to bumping up that number!

I am going to wing it when it comes to book selections. I’m a big mood reader so I think I will just read whatever I’m in the mood for. When it comes to food, I am much more prepared…

My snack/meal list:

Circus Peanuts
Teddy Grahams
Vanilla Wafers
Sesame Sticks
Brownies (which I still have to make)
Mini Peanut Butter Cups (because they have the perfect ratio of chocolate vs peanut butter!)

Pizza Rolls (a nice simple oven meal)
Makings of my FAV sandwich (Sweet Bologna, Cheese, Mustard, Chips)

AAaaand a bag of raw carrots because I felt guilty for all of the yummy goodness above ;)

If you’re RAT’ing this weekend, comment with your blog addy and I’ll try to stop by a couple of times to do some cheering and what not :)


  1. LOL about the food - Ash. and I were just saying that were just as excited about the food as we were the reading! It is a very important part!
    I have lots of prep to do tonight! Good thing there is nothing of value on TV.
    I'll be talking to ya tomorrow!

    Don't be sticking any toothpicks in your eyes! Hahahahaha!

  2. It's an excuse to eat all of the things you might not normally eat!

    DH and I are busy tonight so I may have to do my prep work in the morning. But really all I have to do is make brownies and put my goodies in one spot.

    I'll try to avoid the toothpick in the eye thing, reading would be difficult if I blind myself ;)

  3. I'm excited but I still have no idea what's going to happen! lol
    But hopefully I'll be *seeing* you around tomorrow for this!

  4. Hi Kate! Of course you'll be seeing me around!

    Pretty much read, blog, chat as much as you want. You can also check in on the RAT site every hour, they will have contests, etc.

  5. My snacks will probably be oreo cookies and ginger snaps. I don't think there's much else around the house.

    I made a list of books, but knowing me I might scrap it and decide to read one of the new books I bought. Or that pile of library books that I haven't gotten to... ^_~

  6. Hahahahahahaha. So you have nooooooo idea what you're reading but have an exact list of the stuff you'll be eating?!?!?!?!?!?! Hehehehehehehe.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnndddddd she's off! Good luck, Jen. :o)

  7. Haha! Of course I have my food planned out! A girl's gotta eat! Lol

    Thon starts in 15 Min!!!!!!

  8. Thanks for stopping by Bookish! I have Oreos too.....hhhmmm

    Happy reading :)


I love hearing from you and will try to respond to comments as much as possible.
