I have 2 stacks of books, 1 children's and 1 YA. I find it's easier to switch back and forth so that I don't get tired. The book I'm starting with is Hailey Twitch is Not a Snitch by Lauren Barnholdt. It is a children's chapter book.
I'd like to wish all the other Read-a-Thon participants "good luck; may you read lots and lots of books!"
Here is the First Hour Mini-Challenge
Where are you reading from today? My chair in the living room
3 facts about me … I am an asst. principal in an elementary school, I raise horses, 1 of my horses is ready to foal any day
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? 24...Ooh, 1 an hour, not sure that will happen though.
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)? I'd like to get through my stack I can't do the whole 24 hours b/c we have a party tonight to attend, but I'm doing as much as I can.
If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? Read smaller books in between the longer ones.
