I’m about to embark on my very first 24 hour Read-a-Thon! A group of about 350 book bloggers and other bookish people are trying to make a dent in all those wonderful books out there by trying to read for 24 hours. Well, read and cheer each other on. And update progress on our blogs.
There won’t be any posts other than Read-a-Thon updates this weekend, so feel free to skip whatever you aren’t interested in. :-).
I’m as ready as I can be, considering I’ve never done this before!
These are the books I've bought but haven't made time to read yet.
Books I've won or otherwise been given.
My lone library book. Library books make me nervous. I'll read this one early in the day.
I really don't want to read books I've committed to review, but I couldn't resist having these available.
I have lots of books to choose from! And I still plan to get more from my daughter tomorrow. I’m bribing her with snacks to make a delivery.
I also have audiobooks loaded on my MP3 player for listening when I need to rest my eyes or do other things.
I have no idea how many I will read. More than 5, less than 10?
I don’t know how long I’ll stay awake, but I’m prepared!
My approach to snacks is the same as books-- many more than I'll need, so I have a choice.
I’ve created a home base in our guest bedroom, which is far away from everything else in the house.
I’ll have to venture out of my nest for beverages and the healthier snacks that live in the refrigerator. I plan to eat with my family (if they are willing to supply me with food!) and I’ll choose to find other places to read as well.
I won't get lonely while reading!
I just need to add more pillows. Lots more pillows.
