Hour 24 – YOU ARE THERE!!!!!!!!


This is Kate from Kate’s Book Nook and I will be your cohost for the final hour of the readathon. We are there, guys. This is the end! Just one more hour to go! We can do it. Every minute that passes is a minute closer to sleep, or the rest of your day or everything else that you plan on doing today! It has been so much fun hanging out with you guys!

In this last post, I want to thank you, the readers and participants. Without you signing up and reading, this even wouldn’t be possible. It has been an honor, spending the last four hours chatting with you and getting to know you all a little bit better. You are fantastic and I hope to see you in April!

Video of the Hour:

Spoofs on our favorite books can be a lot of fun. This is a spoof on Harry Potter. It is from the Harry Potter Puppet Pals.

Random Fact of the Hour:

  •  Cinderella’s slippers were originally made out of fur. The story was changed in the 1600s by a translator. It was the left shoe that Aschenputtel (Cinderella) lost at the stairway, when the prince tried to follow her.
  • Dr. Seuss wrote “Green Eggs and Ham” after his editor dared him to write a book using fewer than 50 different words.

  7. I’m gonna be honest and say I managed 13 hours. I was gonna continue it but I’m so exhausted.
    13 hours is good though, right?

  8. Well all – I would have liked to say we stayed up last night but the last of our family fell asleep around 3AM.

    We had a blast here reading reading reading! And cheering of course.

    Hope we all get to do this again next year with you!
