And... Go! (Read-a-Thon starts right now - and goals)

Alright, this is scheduled to go up at 8am Eastern which is when the read-a-thon starts. Hopefully I am awake with coffee and a book, waiting for the time to rollover to when I can start reading. I don't know how much I'll be on the internet besides my phone and posting the four hour block updates, but probably updating Twitter and Goodreads pretty regularly.

Also, I did a post yesterday with my TBR, well with books I could or might read, but I totally forgot to talk about my goals for this read-a-thon. Mostly because I hadn't really thought about them yet, and I'm not normally very specific with goal for this read-a-thon, but I've got a few.

- I'd like to stay up for the full time and read for as much of that as possible, the full time besides updates, when it's over I'll go around and comment on everyone's posts and then collapse.

- I have really good past read-a-thon stats, but I don't want to be overly ambitious. Saying that - I'd really like to read 1,000 pages. Which - sounds a tad ridiculous, but I've done over that for the last Dewey's read-a-thon I did, and I think the one before that, actually.

- Finish two to three books. I'm about 150 pages into The Knife of Never Letting go, so that should be pretty easy to finish. And then I've got a few really short ones to finish. (I always find reading short books for this read-a-thon, and read-a-thons in general, just feels like I'm getting more done then finishing one 900 page book).

- Do some cheering through twitter, when I see people tweeting about the read-a-thon, I'll probably end up just in the tag tomorrow instead of just watching the people I follow.

Anyway - that's kind of what I'd like to do tomorrow. Also remember to eat, would probably be good, and taking breaks so I don't get eyestrain. Again.

And best of luck to all of you who will be reading!


  1. Good luck and have fun!!! *\o/*

  2. I hope you are having a great time! I plan to go the distance as well. Mainly reading, and commenting/cheering when I can. There's SOOOO many posts updated and I only follow a fraction of who joined. So much fun. Have fun reading!

    1. Thanks! It is hard to read and try and also cheer some, and there are a ton of posts. Have fun reading to you, too!
