Alright. The second 24-Hour readathon for this year is happening this weekend (October 9th). It’s also my husband’s birthday, but he understands. I’m letting him ride his bike all day, he’s letting me read. We may go out for cake and a movie in there, we’ll see.
But for the readathon (I’m excited. It’s like a holiday! for reading!), the plan is:
WORDPRESS & LIVEJOURNAL – One post with updates as I go along like I usually do. This will hopefully not irritate people on the RSS reader with many posts on one day.
TWITTER – @janicu
Scott Pilgrim graphic novels – I have all of them waiting for me. I think that they’ll be something lighter that I’ll be able to concentrate on even when tired, for when it’s 2am and I’m about to die. I am really not a all-nighter person.
Killbox by Ann Aguirre – I think it’s time I read this and I think it will be as exciting to read as I expect so that will keep me going.
Glimmerglass by Jenna Black and Firelight by Sophie Jordan – I’ve gotten smarter about readathons. YAs are the way to go so I have a couple that were on the TBR that are possibilities.
There are other possibilities. The TBR is a vast thing.
Lots of tea. And coffee. Candy of some kind. Fruit. Meals to be determined.
ANNOYING CAT WHO WILL DRIVE ME CRAZY ALL DAY?
Anyone else planning to do this? If you can’t this weekend, there’s another one coming up – the Halloween Read-A-Thon hosted by Lesley at Young Adult Books Reviewed. It’s on the weekend of October 15-17
Hmm this looks like fun! I have a BBQ on Fri and on Sat, so maybe I can squeeze it in between or something. Hope you get some great reading in!
You could.. it’s all day and you can read any time during the day. OR you could wait till next weekend and try your hand at the Halloween one. Even if you miss that, trust me, there are often readathons going on. I consider this one, the one originated by Dewey, to be the biggie though. Happens twice a year, and I look forward to it! 😀
This will be my first read-a-thon and I can see where choosing shorter, readable books would be key! Good luck with your picks!
You too. It’s a lot of fun. Glad you are joining us this time!
I am! This is the first time I haven’t had to work and can actually take part. Can’t wait to see what you think about Killbox!
Awesome! I’ll check on you throughout the day then 🙂
Book pile – check.
Assorted treats – check
Sanity for staying up all day/night – uncheck.
It’s close now!
And coffee – check. 🙂
