Dewey Read-A-Thon Hours 1 and 2: 13.00 to 15.00

After randomly deciding to join in at 13.05, I’ve had a good couple of hours.  Obviously I got a little bit distracted by Twitter (reading with a smartphone on your lap can be counter-productive…) and by stopping by some of my bloggy friends to offer […]
