24 Hour Readathon: April 18th

This should *probably* contain an apology for the folks who subscribe by newsletter. After all, I'm scaring enough of my readers away with my "too many updates." I can only imagine that this will cause more folks to unsubscribe. But it's the 24 Hour Readathon. And I'll be posting throughout the day. Sometimes it might mean a review. But often it will just be an update about the challenge. Or maybe a contest or meme or two.

Hour One meme:

Where are you reading from today? my home

3 facts about me …

I'm sick. Had a horrible night. Will probably have to take naps through the day. But surely reading a few books couldn't be a bad thing, right?

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? Ten. But I'd be happy with two or three being completed.

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'd be happy just to make it halfway through the readathon with as bad as I'm feeling now.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? Not really...



These are the books in my pile:

My goal is to read a few of these. I'd be happy with two or three of these.

Oh! I actually recognise a few of those covers! (Granted, none of them are books I've read, but that is completely beside the point.)

Have fun reading!

Good Luck today Becky! I sure hope that you get to feeling better! Love the cover collage! I know the saying goes "Don't judge a book by it's cover" but books with pretty covers always seem to grab my attention!

Gavin said...

Read a little, nap a little, hope you feel better!

Debi said...
