Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon starts in a few hours and like a colonoscopy it’s in need of over-night prep. I’ll be going to bed early tonight in anticipation for a long day of reading.
I have been thinking not only about my stack of books but also the rationing of caffeine. Like the proper book, caffeine is an essential part of a read-a-thon. I am a tea-addict, I find it soothing, gives me a boost and has always been an action I associate with reading in general. I figure a cup of tea spread generously throughout the day will be part of my game plan.
I have also been thinking very hard on a potential list of books. Short books are always helpful as they not only make you feel as though you’ve accomplished something but are great break-ups when you are reading a chunkster.
