Dewey Week

Hello everyone!

It is the first week of May, spring is in the air; so I decided to make this lovely first full week of May 'Dewey Week'. I was looking at my list of books still to review and I decided to see if there were any that Dewey had read that I didn't know about. It turns out that I have nine books in common with her still to review. I might double up on two days. Anyway, so the week of Dewey reviews will begin May 3 and run until the 9th. Then, on the 10th I will do a book-coveting post; as that is Debi's mini-challenge for this month. I have had some major blogging-block lately, so I am hoping the letter format will be more inspiring for my first week back!

The Books Are:

The Tale of One Bad Rat by Bryan Talbot
So Many Books, So Little Time by Sara Nelson
Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters: The Frightening New Normalcy of Haying Your Body by Courtney E. Martin
The Plain Janes by Cecil Castellucci & Jim Rugg
The Polysyllabic Spree by Nick Hornby
Gossamer by Lois Lowry
Nation by Terry Pratchett
Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer


  1. Looking forward to your reviews!

  2. Loved Gossamer, Polysyllabic Spree and Life As We Knew it...can't wait to see what you have to say!!

  3. I'm so excited about Dewey Week!! Great thinking Kelly :)

  4. Gossamer is a wonderful book! I'm looking foward to your reviews, Kailana!

  5. Nymeth: Thanks!

    Staci: I liked all three of those, and the reviews are all scheduled!

    Chris: I am glad you like the idea!

    Alice: Gossamer was a great book! One of my favourites of the bunch!

  6. You haven't read Life as We Knew it yet? Good book. Didn't rock my world like it did a lot of people and it was kind of frightening. But still...a good read.

  7. Stephanie: I read it. I just hadn't reviewed it, yet!

  8. Ah, Dewey Week - that sounds great! I can't believe I still haven't even gotten to any of my Dewey challenge reads. Yikes. I'm still looking forward to them though so I'm not losing hope on the challenge.

  9. Iliana: For me it is turning out that books I am deciding to read anyway, Dewey read. My list could be a lot longer...

  10. This is a cool idea! Going over the books I've read it's amazing how many were ones I'd added to my TBR because of Dewey's reviews - and they're not even on my list for the Dewey reading challenge lol :)

  11. Joanne: I was surprised how many books I had read were Dewey books too!
