Read-a-thon? Why not?

Written by Kirsten on October 23rd, 2009

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?

    Welcome to the Readathon! This will be my 2nd one; I participated for the first time in April. I plan to just go with the flow! I’m sure life will interfere with my reading tomorrow, but that’s okay; I’ll do what I can and have fun while doing it! Oh, I’m @ErinRagan on Twitter… see you there! :)

    Hey, Erin; thanks so much for the welcome! I’m going to try very hard to keep life at bay, but I’m a bit of a social networking whore, so I’m sure my eyes will stray to my phone more often than I should allow ;)
    Am headed over to Twitter to find ya… LOVE your blog name, by the way!
