Readathon 1st Mini Challenge

I am getting a late start as the dogs did let me sleep in a bit this morning. Coffee is made, dogs are fed, cats are fed, kids are still sleeping. I am doing this mini challenge and then starting in right away while the house is quiet.

Where are you reading from today? I am reading from various places in my home and maybe out if the backyard if it gets warm enough.

3 facts about me … I have three kids, I am a stay at home mom, I love chocolate

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? 11, I know I won't read them all but I wanted to have an assortment ready to go

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 this time around, just winging it and having fun.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? I have only done the Read-a-thon once before but I did get caught up in being online and commenting and it really took a huge chunk of reading time. I guess my advice would be to have a set reading time and posting time.

I am off to read! Have fun everyone!


  1. Good luck!!! Have fun! Found ur blog, and now I'm following you!

  2. Hi Beth, I'm refilling my coffee cup, throwing in a load of laundry and back to my book. Good luck today!

  3. YAY for Reading!!! Have a great Day! *shakes pompoms*

  4. Take twenty-four hours
    And read and read all that day
    Savor the moments
