It’s almost that time … time to start reading for 24 straight hours! Or as close as I can manage. I’ve got everything prepared, all my books, snacks, drinks, cozy PJs and hopefully everything will go smoothly.
Oh but wait, I already ran into a glitch in my plans earlier this evening. Hubs mentioned to me that Saturday morning there was a Library Book Sale going on (o.O) Gee thanks, here I am a total book-geek hoping to read for an entire day and night, and he goes and tells me that! Thankfully we came up with a solution – he’s going to drive so that I can read in the car, then while browsing I will listen to an audiobook. :D Problem solved! I can still take part in the Read-A-Thon and I get to go to the Library Sale. It’ll Be A Perfect Day!
So what I’m hoping will happen is that I will take breaks from reading about every 2-3 hours to post my updates and do some blog-hopping and see how everyone else is making out. Last time I took a break every hour, but this time I want to concentrate more on reading so 2-3 should be good depending on what book I’m reading at the time.
My method for choosing my bookpile was a little bit erratic. I grabbed a bunch that I’ve been saving especially for the event and then I added some that will be good for when I feel tired. It’s a giant stack but I’m not too concerned with the number of books I finish, only that I stay focused on what appeals to me. I’ve taken some photos of all my books. Not too pretty but I wanted to have them all right where they are easy to grab – most of my reading gets done curled up at one end of our sectional sofa so all the books are sharing the other half today.
Good luck to all the readers! Hope everyone has a terrific Read-A-Thon :D
