    1. I know, Vikk! I had my doubts since we flubbed and scheduled this event for Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, but now I feel like we're really piling up the numbers! It's always so much fun, so exciting, and such a great way to engage with the community!

  5. Massive amounts of thanks to you and Heather!!!! We'll be Dewey's Read-a-thon-ing here at our house, though I didn't officially sign up :( since I don't publicly blog anymore. Will definitely be following you all's progress and keeping my fingers crossed that all runs smoothly for you all! I only wish you and Heather got to take a week's vacation next week--I'm sure you both could use it. :)
