We've been asked to share a memory of Dewey, who started the Read-a-Thon. Unfortunately I never had the opportunity to get to know Dewey, as I just got into blogging this year, but I did have the pleasure of joining in the last Read-a-Thon, which I understand was the first without Dewey. She seems to have been something of a pioneer in the book-blogging world, and we all get to benefit from her efforts and love of books.
So here's to Dewey! Thank you, Dewey, for fueling the book blog world and starting something so profound that people want to carry on your efforts even after you are gone.
