Hour 21 – Laughing Our Way to the Finish Line


This is Kate from Kate’s Book Nook and I will be your cohost for the rest of the readathon! You all are doing so great. It was fun talking to some fellow soccer fans and cheese addicts in the comments section! You guys rock!

I want to take a moment and thank the organizers of this event; Andi and Heather. You guys have been awesome. Thanks for continuing this read-a-thon tradition and always being available for questions and pep talks and anything and everything else we need! You both rock my socks off!

Video of the Hour:

In the last post, I introduced you guys to Emma Approves. Now, from the creators of Emma Approves (and The Lizzie Bennett Diaries) I give you 31 Jokes for Nerds. It is time to laugh a little!

Random Fact of the Hour:

  •  Ernest Vincent is an author who wrote a novel called Gadsby in 1939. The novel is 50,000 words long. The interest part is the fact that there is not a single “e” in the entire novel.
  • Frank Baum named “Oz” after a file cabinet in his office. One cabinet was labeled “A to N,” and the second was labeled “O to Z.”

  1. @Angie – I know, right!?! I honestly have no idea how he managed that. The letter E is in so many words!

  2. I haven’t won yet and im trying to decide currently between sleep and more reading… I have to be at church in a few hours to serve!

  3. Love, love, love the vlogbrothers. They’re terrific.

    This is my 7th time doing the readathon, and I’ve never won anything 😛 😉

  4. @Krista – Going to be honest with you, Church today (tomorrow) is 50/50 for me. It will depend on how awake I am in about 9 hours!

  5. This has been so much fun! You have great taste in videos. Hope you’re doing well with your reading, this is probably the best readathon I have EVER particpated in. And I like my readthons. I know that next year’s readathon will be going on my mental calendar.
