Dewey's Read-a-thon


Read-a-thon is on, bitches.

So I'm kind of three hours late in getting a start but that's fine because Julieann is not even awake yet!

Goals: Finish The White Queen by Phillippa Gregory (only 33 pages left) and Emma by Jane Austen (reading on my kindle on my phone so I have no earthly idea how much I have left, other than "less than half"). I don't know which other books on the book pile I'll knock off today but let's say the goal is...at least two, bringing it to a total of four finished books today.

Shall I go back and do the mini challenge of hour one? Sure!

1)Where are you reading from today? The suburban DC hipster colony where I reside. More specifically, probably on the worn-out couch
2)Three random facts about me… My dog is going to interrupt my reading at least 47 times today. I am currently trying to figure out how to shower but not waste valuable reading time. I love Incubus. Love, love, love.
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? My to-be-read pile in general is out of control, not counting library books. I would like to read 8 just to catch up to the 50 books per year goal, but that seems a little ridiculous.
4)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 four books.
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time? I am not a veteran by any means. I could use advice, especially about that shower thing.

Give me an R
Give me an E
Give me an A
Give me a D

What does it spell? READ!!

A shower is a great refreshing break. Don't deny yourself--you'll be glad for it! ;) And get up and move around...change positions and scenery. Easy to prep meals are also great.

But mostly, ENJOY!!
