Dewey's Read-a-thon - April 10th


I have decided to give this read-a-thon a try. I saw a few Bookcrossing friends trying it last year in October, and now that the latest edition is almost here, I think I'll join in!

You can find all the information on it here: Dewey's Read-a-thon, there is a wonderful faq with good tips on what to do.

Basically it's a committment to reading as much as possible on April 10th and updating about it in your blog. It sounds very relaxed, there are fun mini-challenges to participate in, and prizes to win. I've already gotten the buy-in from the husband (at least I think that's what the response "sounds fun" means, that's how I've chosen to interpret it!) so now I just need to go pick out some light books so I have a good selection to choose from. I promise to hold no solid expectations for myself other than to have fun reading!

Come and join us! The sign up can be found in the link above.

Hummingbird Cam

I've been having a lot of fun checking in on Phoebe the hummingbird, and waiting for her eggs to hatch! They've started hatching, and it's just so cool I wanted to share it! Click here to go to the camera and see Phoebe on her nest. This morning she was reinforcing with some spider web, and it appears one egg has a couple holes in it, so hopefully we'll have babies soon!

Update: sometimes I have trouble getting into the above link, here is an alternate link to try: Hummingbird Cam
