Read-A-Thon Post 1

Saturday, April 10, 2010

So far I have read about 20 pages and finished Doctor Who and the Cybermen. That's not very much but I am also feeding myself and a 3 year old so I am not feeling bad about it. That's usually the number of pages I read in a whole day and it's only 8am. I am going to have to take a couple hour break now to run our errands then I'll be back to read some more. I do have an audio book I'll be listening to in the car though so I won't really have to stop "reading".

Here is the info for the first mini challenge of the Read-A-Thon.

Where are you reading from today? mostly my house but I will also be listening to audio books int he car while we run some errands I just can't get out of today

3 facts about me … I die my hair Red, I have published a book of poetry and I have traveled to Australia

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? 9 I think. The pile is kind of less of a physical pile and more piled in my head from books that are on my shelf.

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)? The only real goal I have is to finish the books I have checked out of the library which I already finished one so now I just have to finish Club Dead. Anymore than that is just gravy.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? Get a babysitter, enlist your husband or Mom or someone. I wish I could take this advice...if you can't get a babysitter then get a bunch of kids books and get the little one involved. Children's books count so read to them when they need lovey attention throughout the day.

Sponsor me by sponsoring my friend during the Read-A-Thon and be part of my giveaway. Be a part of it all Right Here.

3 your two cents:

looking good!! Keep up the reading :)

Hope you enjoy your day. That is great advice about the childrens books. I think I will do that later today, my youngest loves to be read to.

Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
May all the books appeal.
May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

Good luck today!
