Thanks for supporting Dewey’s Read-a-thon!

deweys-readathonbutton

I just want to thank everyone for doing such a great job of supporting the read-a-thon today! It’s with a little bit of melancholy that Hannah and Nymeth and I run this read-a-thon, because it’s the first read-a-thon without Dewey. Dewey was such an inspiration to all of us as she was one of the people who brought book bloggers together into a community. You never realize what you have until that something’s gone, and it’s very apparent as we work on this read-a-thon what we’re missing.

We’re comforted, though, in knowing that in continuing events like the read-a-thon and weekly geeks that not only does Dewey live on in our memory, but we’re passing her on to other people who’ve never met her. She will be talked about for years to come.

Thank you for all your support!

    It is a bittersweet readathon, isn’t it? But wouldn’t Dewey get a kick out of so many of us participating?

    Thank you all for hosting it for us! It’s my first Read-A-Thon and I’ve been having a ball as a cheerleader 🙂

    Unfortunately I never had the good fortune to “know” Dewey in the blogosphere, but I know she must be proud of everyone participating!

    I wasn’t a participant but I really do apprechiate that the three of you have kept it going. I love to read all the posts of the people participating and cheer them on. Maybe next time I’ll be able to be a cheerleader. I’m glad I was able to donate and hope that the winners enjoy the books!

    Many thanks to you, Hannah, and Nymeth for organizing the readathon! I was on the periphery (jumped in as cheerleader mid-day Saturday); boy was everyone having a great time!
