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, no need to stress myself out. This is my fourth read-a-thon and I've learned to just take it easy.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
Start with an easy book. Keep some easy books aside for the last couple of hours as well. If you are going for a high number of books stick with easy genres like mysteries and YA and stay away from nonfiction and most classics; they slow you down. Don't try to compete, just enjoy yourself.


  1. Good luck and have fun! You know I just read My Antonia and loved it, so I hope you do, too. I also really like Sherman Alexie and hope you enjoy his book, also.

    I have a very busy AFK weekend so I'll have to check with you when I can, but I'll be thinking of you with envy.

  2. Wow that is a god list of books! I am currently reading the Mister Monday series and really enjoy it!

    Have fun today!!!

  3. I'm also a book blogging accountant! Makes for a good combination of each side of your brain, right? Hope you like the Alexie novel, he's one of my very favorite authors.
