Dewey's Read-a-thon Diversity Reading Challenge

Dewey’s 24 Hour #Readathon : Hour 17 Diversity Shelfie Mini Challenge!

Hour 17 Diversity Shelfie Mini Challenge!

If you’re reading a book that contains diverse characters we want to see them! Get out your cameras and take a photo of a diverse book you love or want to read; it’s time for a Diversity Shelfie! Whether you’re in the shot or not show us your diverse book. Tweet a photo, and a title of a diverse book with hashtag #Diversityshelfie to @pamlovesbooks

It’ll be late so if you don’t want to show yourself you don’t have to. Just show us your book!

I posted my diversity entry “Wonder” by RJ Palacio on the Dewey’s read thon Facebook page. I am terrible at copy/paste url’s from my phone…. Sorry! But you can find my post with the big blue banner with the front cover of the book on it.

“And the Mountains Echoed”

I just heard about this readathon. Sounds fun! How much coffee did you drink?

I’m reading Enchanted Air by the beautiful Margarita Engle. (when I’m not reading about diverse mermaids)

Claire i gave up coffee for good October 5th! Four glasses of wine kept me sharp as a tack. or dull as a doorknob.
