Read-a-Thon Mini-Challenge: Hour 1

Where are you reading from today?

I'm in what my sons call my Meditation Room. It has everything I need for the Read-a-Thon: comfortable chair, day bed, meditation fountain, meditation candles, two laptops, and stacks and stacks of books.

3 facts about me:

1. I've been reading since I was two years old.
2. I am a librarian, so I even get to read at work.
3. I usually fall asleep reading. It will be tough for me to stay awake from 10 pm to 6 am on Sunday.

How many books do you have in your TBR for the next 24 hours?
34 BookCrossing books I've been meaning to read and pass on....

39 books under my day bed I've been meaning to read

2 library books

Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon?

I'd love to finish some of my BookCrossing TBR, especially the Newbery Honor BookCrossing books.

I'd love to stay awake all twenty-four hours.

Any advice for people doing this for the first time?

I am doing this for the first time!


  1. Deb! It's Andi from the Yahoo! Groups. Good to see you have a blog. I've been a college English teacher for a while now, but I'm going back to school for Library Science (hopefully) in the fall. Good luck with your reading today!

  2. Welcome from another first timer...I know you can - I know you can!! :) One day we will have to talk about being a librarian! I think I missed my calling - maybe it will be my next career... :) at some point...
