Ready For The Read–A–Thon!


♥  Read  ♥  Read  ♥  Read  ♥

How exciting is this! Only a few hours left until the 24 Hour Read-A-Thon officially begins. I’ve got my books organized, all the boys know not to bother me unless the house catches on fire and I’ve got snacks!

This is my first time participating in the Read-A-Thon, so I wasn’t too sure what I would feel like reading. So to be ultra prepared I have a couple of piles to choose from.


  • Stack 1 is a mish-mash of short book, short story collections, non-fiction and humorous books for when I get sleepy or lose concentration.
  • Stack 2 contains a bunch of series books that I have put to the side for some reason or another. I figure this would be a good chance to get back into these.
  • Stack 3 is mostly contemporary fiction or newer releases that have been sitting on my TBR pile patiently waiting for me to pick them up.
  • Stack 4 is all my ARC or review copies that I have started, but not finished. I’ve also got a couple PDF manuscripts waiting on my laptop.
  • Stack 5 is nearly impossible to categorize, it’s a jumble of books that really caught my eye today as I was tidying up my reading areas and bookshelves.

Obviously I have no shortage of choice for the upcoming event, but it will be interesting to see just what I end up reading (lol) During my updates (which I hope to do every hour) I will provide some details of what I’ve read, page counts, and anything else that I think of.

This will be my first Read-a-Thon, too, so I'm not sure what to expect, but I can't wait to get started.

It's my first readthon - and I'm just going to randomly pick books from my shelf I think - I like how organised you are though.

Good luck.
