Readathon Tomorrow

Tomorrow is Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon. I'm ready to go and so are my kids. We have piles of books and snacks and plan to mostly veg out tomorrow reading. I say mostly because we are going to take a trip to the library. We already have books, as I said, but we have some due tomorrow so we might as well pick up some more.

I am excited to read the Enola Holmes series with my kids. These are books that have Sherlock Holmes' little sister as the main character. I didn't even know this series existed! I was a HUGE Sherlock Holmes fan as a kid (and yes, I also LOVE the modern British TV version). My kids are enthralled with the prospect of these books too which is always a good thing. I'm also looking forward to finishing Tears of the Moon by Nora Roberts. This is an older book by but I love it! I will also be reading from Gone With the Wind as I am reading it for the first time with one of my best friends.

I'm going to make Crock Pot lasagna (yes, that is a thing, a DELICIOUS thing!) for dinner tomorrow. So my home will smell fabulous all day, too. This is one of my kids' favorite things to eat so they are extra happy. Win win.

So yes, I am excited for tomorrow. Who else is participating?
