Read-A-Thon Starting Line

October 9, 2010 Whitney read-a-thon 8 Comments

I’ll be starting the Read-A-Thon soon and I’m super excited to set aside a whole day for reading!  But before I begin, here is a quick introductory meme for Hour 1.

Where are you reading from today?
I staked out a chair to glue my butt to (or at least for most of the time).

3 facts about me …

  1. I’ve ridden in the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile 
  2. During a Father’s Day parade I threw Gray Poupon packets from a Rolls Royce. (Remember those commercials from the 90s?)
  3. I’ve donated 12″ to Locks For Love.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?

  1. The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson (Currently Reading)
  2. A Modern Mephistopheles by Louisa May Alcott
  3. the Abbott’s Ghost by Louisa May Alcott
  4. Lady Susan by Jane Austen
  5. Love and Friendship by Jane Austen
  6. Suspense and Sensibility by CarrieBebris
  7. Jezebel’s Daughter by Wilkie Collins
  8. Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk by David Sedaris

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)?
I would love to read at least three books today and my goal is to read for 10 hours.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
Don’t worry about how many books /hours you have or haven’t read it’s not a contest, this is suppose to be fun!

  1. You got this! πŸ™‚ I still need to read the rest of the Millenium Trilogy! I loved The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo! So I'm pretty jealous!

    I'm Jamie. One of your cheerleaders ready to cheer you on! Sometimes when I was in college and I would be doing marathon paper writing (not that the readthon isn't fun!!) I would need just a quick stretch and a laugh and for whatever reason laughing babies always did the trick to make me giggle and then get back done to business! Here's one of my favorites:

    Happy reading!
