Tips From Dewey That I Need to Remember:
  • Pick shortish books.

  • Choose something light, and save those for the end when you’re tired and sick of reading.

  • Give yourself permission to put a book aside and not finish it if it’s not holding your attention.

  • Just in general don’t be a masochist. This is supposed to be fun!


  1. Hmmm...your edibles list sounds a whole healthier than mine! Glad I didn't admit to what I had stockpiled for the day.

    I've got Uglies in my possibles pile for the day. I'm guessing you must have enjoyed it, since you've got the sequels in your pile, huh?

    Good luck! And Have Fun!
