Dewey's Readathon

Not a morning person, so I'm just barely starting the readathon.  This post is where I will make all my updates.  Any mini challenges I participate in throughout the day will all each have separate posts, so this might be shuffled down some.  I can't think of a better way to do it.  I'll be checking how ya'll be doing it to get some ideas for next time.

Good luck everyone!
