24 Hour Readathon: Ready Set GO!!!!!!!!!!

Good morning! I don't think I got enough sleep last night. It's a bright and sunny morning. And I have a lovely stack of books to start the day off. I can't guarantee I'll be this chipper same time tomorrow. In case you're just joining in, I am participating in the 24 Hour Readathon. Yes I am planning on reading today for 24 hours straight.

I plan to update every hour on here and on twitter (beatccr) so if I don't update, that means I have passed out.

This is the format of which my updates on here will be:

Title of book(s) started since last update:
Title of book(s) finished since last update:
Number of books read since you started:
Pages read since last update:
Running total of pages read since you started:
Amount of time spent reading since last update:
Running total of time spent reading since you started:

My first three books I will be reading this hour are Confessions of a Fat Girl by Liza Palmer, The Elevator by Angela Hunt and Leaving Carolina by Tamera Leigh.

I learned from the last readathon that it's best for me if I read 50 minutes each hour and then spend the last 10 minutes to recuperate, do the mini challenges and update my status. Also I will be taking two 50 minute breaks to refresh myself throughout the challenge.

Will I stay up again for the whole shebang? We shall see!

So!!! Let's get started!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Good morning Deborah :-)

    My name is Louise and this is my first visit to your blog. I am already looking forward to visit again and check it out more :-)

    I live in Denmark and have been up for hours, since I am nine hours ahead of Pacific Time and 5AM Pacific Time means 2PM in Copenhagen, Denmark.

    I wish you much luck with your readathon. I have signed up this year for the first time, although I am not reading but cheerleading.

    This first hour I am going to orientate myself a bit, check out the blogs participating, hanging out on Twitter and so on. I might sneak in a bit of reading here and there, but my main thing is to cheer so GO! GO! GO!
