It's that time again. Round up the books, chase the family out of the house and put on a pot of coffee . . . it's READATHON DAY! It's 7:00 a.m. in my part of the world and I've been up preparing (and maybe getting in a little sewing) before the reading day begins.
The coffee's ready, as is the book stack, and I'm pumped. I'm assuming we will be starting with the standard questions, so here goes:
What fine part of the world are you reading from today? I'm in the southeast corner of Nebraska, USA
Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? Somewhere Safe With Someone Good by Jan Karon. I've had the book for about a week and have forced myself to wait til this morning to start.
Which snack are you most looking forward to? I'm trying to remain on the healthy eating road today - so fresh fruit, carrot sticks and hummus await me.
Tell us a little something about yourself! Wife, mother of adult children, grandma, reader, crafter, sewer, cupcake addict. For more info, click the "about" tab.
If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? I've participated many times and I usually have the same plan: Read 45 minutes of each hour, spend 15 minutes on mini-challenges, etc. For the first time in years, I'm going to try to read through the night.
So, welcome fellow readers! Have a great day of bookish fun. If you aren't participating, there's still plenty of time - nearly 24 whole hours! Visit the website and sign up.
Come back at 3:00 a.m. (Central Time) for my Books on Books Mini-Challenge.
