1)Where are you reading from today?
From home on the couch.

2)Three random facts about me…
I have a 10 pound, four-legged white canine ball of fluff as a reading partner. I'm putting off stitching a fat little bluebird to read today. My husband is a fabulous read-a-thon assistant. He keeps me fed and watered.

3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
I have over three dozen books out from the library but my read-a-thon pile is ten of the "fast" reads.

4)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, I enjoy the read-a-thon more if I keep things loose and unscheduled.

5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
Be sure to have several easy reads - usually genre novels are best such as mystery, romance, YA and urban fantasy. Have more books than you think you can read so you have choices depending on your mood and energy level. Don't force yourself to finish a book you aren't enjoying or are struggling with. Put it aside for another day.


  1. Sounds like a great plan. Hope you have lots of fun! Good luck and happy reading!!

  2. Very good advice. When I've done read-a-thons I have found this tactic to be very wise!
