Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon

 



So like the rest of 2020 nothing is normal for Dewey's. Yes, we're staying in a hotel but thanks to Covid it's just me and Richard. I'll be checking in with Nancy throughout the day though. Still, I'm excited for Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon to begin!  My TBR is below. Let's make this a good one!
