Hi guys!!! I’m so excited to start the read-a-thon. :D I’ll be reading and cheerleading, so hopefully you’ll see me around your blog (their are so many readers I’m not sure how to keep up!). I plan on updating every hour, so check back in if you’re curious about where I’m at!

I’ve made a quick vlog:

In case you don’t want to watch the video, I thank our lovely hosts Trish, Nymeth, and Wordlily and take a moment to remember Dewey, the wonderful blogger and person without whom we wouldn’t be here today. Even though she can’t be with us, I think her spirit will be here today, in the community building and celebration of reading amongst so many of us.

And now I’m off to go read. ;)

    Chris, I really wasn’t expecting to tear up, but I guess it’s difficult not to.

    Wishing you a very fun read-a-thon, Eva! As a fan of sleeping in late and napping as adjuncts to my own reading habit, I’m impressed at the enthusiasm and stamina of all you read-a-thoners. Way to go!

    That was a sweet tribute to Dewey. We all miss her today.

  12. April 18, 2009 6:28 am

    Eva, you’re the sweetest thing ever. I think Dewey probably misses you, too.

  13. April 18, 2009 6:40 am

    Eva, you’re as cute as ever! And as sweet as ever! And I’m sending you the hugest hugs imaginable!!! Every day without Dewey has been so hard, and today, well, today just isn’t the same. And I just can’t stand it. Love you sweetie!

    Good luck today!

  15. April 18, 2009 7:20 am

    How wonderful! I loved your vlog and can’t wait for the others! I might try to do my own little vlog at the end. What an inspiration!

  16. April 18, 2009 7:24 am

    Best of luck today. I’ll be cheering for you (unofficially–today is laundrython, followed by familython)!! That was a lovely tribute to your friend; I’m sure she is rooting for everyone as well.

    Go Go Go Eva and Barb!!!

    This was the first vlog of you that I actually got to watch and it is totally awesome to see and hear you! That probably sounds funny, but I guess you know what I’m trying to say. It is just so cool to find out who is behind this (or any other blog, for that matter!).

    Go Eva! That was a lovely vlog!

    It is great to see the vlog. It is nice to get to know others that way!

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
