Participating in my 3rd MS Read-a-Thon

I've raised 119.05%

of my fundraising goal and am now a

Super star

Tabitha's 3rd Readathon!

Hello, and thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This is my third readathon and I have a big reading goal this year. I would like to read 120 books this August to raise funds for families living with MS. We have friends living with MS and it's important to us to support them. 

I am committing to reading ONE THIRD of the number of books (chosen by me). That means I will read, all by myself, 40 books. Any book I read myself has a (T) at the beginning of the title. 

Please support my efforts and encourage my reading. 

Thank you. A happy Little Reader.
