First readathon mini-challenge

Written by Kirsten on April 10th, 2010

Today’s first mini-challenge is a blessedly easy one, haha…

Where are you reading from today? My apartment in San Francisco, which I share with two roommates (who we’ve warned about today!) and my partner, who is doing a movie marathon while I readathon :)

3 facts about me … Hmm… I love glitter, am afraid of balloons, and am terrible at coming up with random facts about myself. *grin*

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? 21

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)? Not particularly, though I would like to make it the whole 24 hours without sleep this time around; I crashed twice for a total of about 3.5 hours last time.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? It’s only my second time, but I definitely recommend (a) stepping away from Twitter unless you’re deliberately spending as much time reading the #readathon posts as reading your books, and (b) having a couple of easy reads at the start of the day to give you a feeling of accomplishment right off the bat.

Back to Magical Thinking; have fun, everyone!
