And so it begins: Readathon Update #1

According to the clock on my computer, it’s 4:50 AM as I write this – T minus 10 minutes to Read-a-thon blast-off!

I plan to start off a bit slowly – read for 60 to 90 minutes, then take a shower/dog-walking break. I’ll read through breakfast, of course (which may be accompanied by a little extra coffee).

The first book I’ll be reading is one already in progress – I’m on page 60 of Love the One You’re With by Emily Giffin.

I’ll be checking in here and on Twitter every so often, but trying not to get too sucked in, since the priority for the day (and night, however long that goes) is READING!

Good luck, Read-a-thoners!

    Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

    May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
    May all the books appeal.
    May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
    the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
    may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

    Good luck today!

    Thanks for stopping by, y'all! I've finished one book, posted a second update, and am off to return visits now. Go Read-a-thon!

    (Hey, does all the blogging and Twittering count as Read-a-thon time?)
