Doing the Dewey: Mini Challenge #9:


By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez

It’s pretty obvious that all those participating in the Dewey Read-a-Thon loves reading and books. We’d be completely out of our hats to participate if we didn’t.

This is my all-time favourite type of hat: the large, dramatic sun hat. And yes, okay, I’m not as good-looking as the “model” wearing this hat—but that’s because she’s a mannequin! And mannequins surely know how to cheat. It’s called NOT EATING! Nor BREATHING!

But, who loves books enough to actually reread them? Huh? Anyone? Anyone?

I’ve got my hand up! Do you?

I do have a few books that I love that much to reread. Here’s my list of reread-able books. Maybe they’re on your list too!
