This weekend I'm going to be participating the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon. This will be my first time doing the Read-a-Thon and I'm very excited about it.
What is the 24 Hour Read-a-thon?
It’s sort of a reading challenge, only everyone participates at the same time. For 24 hours, we read books, post in our blogs about our reading, and visit other readers’ blogs. We also participate in mini-challenges throughout the day.
My start time starts at 8am Saturday morning so yes, that means I plan on staying up until 8am Sunday morning reading! I have a feeling though I will pass out around 2-3am. But I plan on getting some coffee during the last few hours to see if I can make it. The ultimate plan is to stay up the whole 24 hours, go to the early service at church and then crash for the rest of the day. I plan on blogging and twittering hourly about my progress, so if you don't see a post at the top of the hour, that means I didn't make it :-( (I just also noticed I used the word plan 4 times in that paragraph...)
I don't have a set list of books that I'm reading other than The Face by Angela Hunt that both Amy from My Friend Amy and I are reading so we can blog about it together later. Other than that I have a bunch of books from other reading challenges and plus if I get bored with those, believe me I have a huge TBR list that I can choose from. I might be able to crank out possibly 4 finished books during the read-a-thon. I might also squeeze in some school reading.
Anyone else signing up for it? Any tips or past experience stories?
