For Weekly Geeks this week we are asked to reveal our readathon plans, of which I have a few.
Here's the stack of books I've gathered so far. Not a whole ton, but I may add to it still. I think this readathon I will not worry so much about finishing a book, but maybe jump around a bit. Therefore, I may (yes, it may all change depending on how things go and my mood that day!) count pages read.....
.....especially because I will spend some of my time working on these never ending books! BUT, you can see the bookmark is getting awfully close to the end on one of them! In fact, by Saturday, it may be done! The other one however, seems to be stuck stuck stuck!! Anyway, I will continue to work on them too.
I just got back from the store and brought with me this pile of snacks to be saved for the readathon. It's a bit chocolate heavy, surprise surprise. I think I need to still add some salty something to the mix. As for actual food to eat that day? We'll see when it happens!
I can't decide where to read this year. Last year, I was upstairs on my favorite reading couch. But this year, I may try reading downstairs in my book nook. But the chairs are misfits and not too comfortable for reading. So, maybe we'll bounce between the two.
And yes, I will be trying to get cleaning, and errands and all manner of miscellaneous chores done on Friday, and Thursday and today, so nothing will be calling to me or making me feel guilty on Saturday. I hope. Actually, most of this week is just getting through the book fair, which I'll be working at this evening, tomorrow evening and then putting away on Friday. So by Saturday, I'll be exhausted and so so ready to just sit and read! Here's hoping I can stay awake! Though I can tell you right now I won't read through the night. Just can't do it. I will get up for the start time (6 a.m. here I think) and read until I drop, which will be around 11:00 pm. to midnight. That's a plenty long enough readathon for me!
Oh, I wonder what I'll buy at the book fair? Hmmmm...maybe that stack above will have a whole new book fair stack added to it!
Yes, I will be reading with music on. With my 11 year old daughter by my side. My 18 year old daughter may join us at times with school reading, and hopefully we can get my 15 year old son to join us with some of his school reading too. My husband would like it crazy to sit and "waste" a perfectly good Saturday just reading. However, maybe he'll join us in the evening after he's worked his butt off all day long? Yeah, we'll see.
Well, no matter the plans, I'm just excited to get going!
Let me know if you'll be reading too so I can be sure to check in and cheer you on that day!
