24-hour Read-a-thon - I'm signed up!

Would you believe that in over 4 years of blogging I've never signed up for a Read-a-thon? They've always appealed to me, since way back when our beloved Dewey came up with the concept -- and I've participated casually (without signing up) in the past. But, till last spring I had swim meets and other events that interfered.

This year: Kiddo's coming home for the weekend and hubby wants to clean the garage "while it's cool". However, it shot up to 88 degrees, today, so maybe I can get away with hiding in the bedroom to read. We'll see.

I don't have any books specifically set aside. My goal is to finish the three four books I'm currently reading and I also hope to read Fables: Legends in Exile, the first of the Fables graphic novels. After that . . . whatever grabs me, if I find the time. I will not go without sleep, so it'll probably be more like a 12-hour read-a-thon, at best. I've got hints of a sinus infection that's making my eyes puffy and sore, so I just can't do without the sleep. But, I'll keep you posted on what I manage to read.

Happy Thanksgiving weekend to the Canadians!!


  1. Good lucky with your reading! How wonderful that you get to participate this time!

    I can't do the readathon, but I will be hosting a mini challenge at 1am Pacific, so if you're still up you should stop by. :)

  2. Alyce,

    Thanks. I'm excited. I hope I can get up in the morning. This constant headache is really putting a crimp in my style.

    1am Pacific??!! That's 3am, here. I hope I'm not up! LOL Have fun with your mini challenge, though! If, for some strange reason, I am still awake, I will drop by. :)

  3. Good luck with the readathon and your four books! By the way, your "Keep Calm and Carry On" button is looking at me right now, and I can't help but feel put on the spot. Yes, button, I will do what you say.:)

  4. Good luck! I'll plan on stopping by at some point tomorrow.

  5. Yay! So glad you'll be joining in! :)

  6. Fantaghiro23,

    Wow, that's a heck of a screen name! Thanks! Sorry about my button ordering you around. It's supposed to be a reminder to me. Naturally, I just ignore it because it's always there. LOL


    Thank you and cool! I'll see you then!


    Thank you, m'dear. Happy weekend to you and Hez! :)


    Thanks! This is the point at which we jump up and down together, right? Squeee! Read-a-thon! Have fun!

  7. Woo-hoo! (I really need to get busy and come up with some more creative cheers!)

  8. Softdrink,

    I take it you're a cheerleader? LOL Woo-hoo is a good start. ;)

  9. This is my first time participating as well. Hope you're feeling better soon...enjoy!!

  10. Bekkah,

    Thanks! I'm tired, this morning, but not so headachy. Just finished my first book! Happy reading to you, too!
