I’ve been hesitant to commit to Dewey’s read-a-thon, primarily because my life has been so crazy that I can hardly find a solid hour, let alone twenty-four of them, to dedicate to reading. However, the timing has worked out so that I will be house-and-cat-sitting and therefore unable to make progress on my own unpacking and settling project, so what better excuse?
I’m not going to have my own library on hand, so I’ll go through my ex’s books tonight and select a stack of titles she kept that I’d like to read but haven’t yet; those will be my main focus, and I’ll probably go with YA fantasy series for fillers if I get in a rut. My goal, though, is to complete books and not skip around so much as to leave several in various states of completion. I’ll also make sure to have lots of snacky foods and beverages at the ready, though I’ve become quite adept at reading and cooking simultaneously over the years :)
Are you participating in the read-a-thon? Is it your first time, or are you a veteran? Got any tips for a last-minute newbie?
