I woke up about half an hour ago and the one thing I definitely didn’t want to do was read. Of course. It’s Hour 6 overall (it started at 8 AM EST), but Hour 1 for me!
However, now I have some tea in me and I’ve done my obligatory internet things and I’m feeling ready to start! Here’s a meme from Hour 1 as an introduction:
Where are you reading from today? My mom’s house with cats all around me. :)
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? Seven! I’m sure I won’t get to them all, though. :)
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)? At least ten hours, one book finished, and a comment on twenty other blogs!
If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? Pace yourself! If you’re tackling a huge book, read a hundred pages and then move onto something light and fun. Make sure to take lots of breaks, and don’t feel guilty if you have to go do something non-book related.
