Not eleven minutes ago, the 24 hour read-a-thon officially began. This year I’m even more excited because I signed up to be a cheerleader! Yeah! This particular position eluded me in High School as I was neither blonde, into blue sparkly eyeshadow, or showing my bum as I walked. However, now is the perfect time to dwell in what I do best: Read! And, Support Others Who Read!
Be sure to check out the main page for the read-a-thon throughout the day as there will be not only tips, but exciting mini-challenges as well. Here’s the first one:
Our first mini-challenge for you is the Hour 1 meme that Darcy wrote up quite a few read-a-thons ago. I’d alter it but I’m all about traditions, man!
Where are you reading from today?
- I’ll continue with The Brothers Karamazov, and move on to a variety of ARC’s…plus, I want to knock of a few challenge reads for both Clover, Bee and Reverie as well as the Once Upon A Time IV.
3 facts about me…
- I began blogging in 2006, on Blogger, and it wasn’t specifically a book blog then.
- This is only my second read-a-thon ever.
- I can never remember a time in my life when I couldn’t read.
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
- Shelves and shelves and shelves? All over my flipping house?! I also have a number of audio books on my iPod, but that would be the kiss of death: listening equals sleeping to me.
Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)?
- My main goal is not to get frustrated that my husband invited his mother and his aunt, both of whom I love, to lunch. Today! I know! How can I read when I’m entertaining?!
If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?
- See Debnance‘s post on Read-a-thon Lite. She cracks me up with her wonderful perspective.
