|vote, fav and share for Dewey|
Yesterday was my 13th participation in the 24hr Read-a-Thon founded by Dewey in 2007 and hosted at her original blog, The Underside of the Leaf, which I can't link because it no longer exists. Dewey passed in late November of 2008, after organizing and hosting four events in the spring and fall of 2007 and 2008.
Since then her legacy--the world wide community of book lovers she wove together by those 4 events--has continued to thrive under the dedicated administering of a slew of organizers, hour hosts at the hub, gift and postage donors and cheerleaders. And the numbers of participants increase each thon--nearly 500 this fall--which is now hosted on a dedicated blog, Dewey's Read-a-Thon
Tho I can no longer expect to participate the full 24 hours, I can't imagine my April and October without Dewey's 24hr Read-a-Thon.
