Mini Challenge #1

Where are you reading from today? The couch here in Nova Scotia.

3 facts about me … 1. Um, I'm not a very fast reader. 2. I have a cold 3. I find Sponge Bob very distracting (girl has it on TV)

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? I can't remember exactly, 7 maybe.

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)? No goals- I'm sure to fail them so I'm winging it.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? Pick shorter books to read today.

So that's my first hour down. How is it going for you?


  1. Good idea to just see where you go! I hope you're enjoying your book!!

  2. I hope the read-a-thon is a lot of fun for you!

  3. Feel better soon, Chris! It's no fun being sick. :-( Hopefully your cold won't interfere with your reading today, but if you need to nap, I'm sure everyone will understand.

    Good luck and happy reading!

  4. Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

    May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
    May all the books appeal.
    May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
    the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
    may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

    Good luck today!

  5. I don't ever set goals, either. Rebelliousness is far more fun ;-)

  6. I didn't set any goals either - too hard to not make them and feel discouraged when this whole thing is about having fun. Hope you're enjoying yourself and not too miserable with your cold

  7. Taking a break from reading to say – have a great day and have fun!

  8. Best of luck today! I've been commenting like mad :)

  9. I'd find spongebob distracting, too! Good luck Chris!
