Hour 18 – Boooooookkkkk!! It’s All Just a Bunch of Hocus Pocus


You did it! Can you believe it? You made it more than 75% of the way!! You have come so far but don’t stop now. My name is Courtney; I’m a librarian formerly blogging at Stiletto Storytime but you can catch me now on Twitter @StiletoStrytime. I will be hanging out with you for the next hour or so of Readathon. I know we are really pushing into the hard hours but I know you can hang and I will try to keep things fun.

One of the things I love about our Dewey’s October Readathon is the time of year and Halloween being just around the corner. We get to play with all that Hocus Pocus fun which the kid in me just adores. I have dressed up as a Sanderson sister a time or two…Sarah both times I must admit but we all know Winifred from Hocus Pocus who had her most precious book stolen and lost so I was wondering…do you have a favorite “booooookkkk” that you would would turn you into a “wicked witch” about if you lost or couldn’t find it?

Mine would absolutely be my copy of Pride and Prejudice that belonged to my Great Grandmother. She would always write her name and the year she read a book on the inside front cover and she just happened to read that copy in 1981 the year I was born. It’s truly a treasure to me and I would turn Salem upside down in search of it…rings of salt, smelly zombie ex-boyfriends and admittedly adorable black felines be darned.

So let me know yours here or on Twitter and keep reading!!!

  1. I just want to say I love that some of you are actually reading “Hocus Pocus” for the readathon! I didn’t even think of that.
