taking part in the read-a-thon

I am again taking part in Dewey's 24 hour readathon . This is an event that celebrates the love of reading and blogging or just discussing said book through social media. I took it upon myself  to try it last time because reading tends to be difficult for me because of my cognitive challenges having Multiple Sclerosis. Last time I read for eighteen hours (I remember a few things but I wouldn't be able to do a book report about it). I plan to "re-enlist" in the reading army to try to blend my two worlds together; while I write to my fellow MSers about reading I can again enlighten my fellow reading friends about the MS world and what someone like me goes through in this Challenge. I like the aspect that it's kind of like a dance marathon in that you see how long you can go but it's ok if you don't "dance" all night, (which is good for me cause I only dance with my cane) The readathon is slated for October 22nd and I plan to have Hi-Liters, scrap paper and bookmarks on standby as well as extra caffeine. (Balanced with water)
