This is Kate from Kate’s Book Nook and I will be your cohost for the final hour of the readathon. We are there, guys. This is the end! Just one more hour to go! We can do it. Every minute that passes is a minute closer to sleep, or the rest of your day or everything else that you plan on doing today! It has been so much fun hanging out with you guys!
In this last post, I want to thank you, the readers and participants. Without you signing up and reading, this even wouldn’t be possible. It has been an honor, spending the last four hours chatting with you and getting to know you all a little bit better. You are fantastic and I hope to see you in April!

Spoofs on our favorite books can be a lot of fun. This is a spoof on Harry Potter. It is from the Harry Potter Puppet Pals.
