Today is Official Read-A-Thon Prep Day, so I'll be spending my day getting rid of all possible distractions, like the dust on the end table, the stack of laundry, the tomatoes that need canned, and the dirty dishes. Once the house is reasonably free of distractions, there is food prep - a make-ahead meal that can be popped in the oven tomorrow evening, something easy to grab for lunch, and lots and lots of snacks.
Step three is book selection. This is the toughest part, but if I don't have a general line-up in mind, I waste too much time deciding what to read.
|My current read (Christmas Wedding) plus books from the library.|
|Recent book purchases and gifts.|
|ARCs and a few others that should have been read long ago.|
The final piece of the perfect read-a-thon day is ambiance. Since it will be a crisp autumn day here, I think some Christmas music and the scent of apples/cinnamon are in order.
I better get to work. What are your read-a-thon plans?
