Read-a-thon Mini Challenge #1

In this challenge we would like you to write a post on your blogs about your kick off strategy. What have you surrounded yourself with for these early hours of the challenge besides your books? Is there a coffee thermos, lucky book mark, snacks, pillow.... We want to know how you have prepared so you do not have to leave your cozy reading space (by the way - we'd like to know what is too.... (are you still in bed, a chair, the couch.....)

I have been reading for two hours sitting in the livingroom in my recliner. I have enjoyed a few cups of coffee cake coffee, a banana, and a chocolate cupcake topped with a peep! I have my tote bag with my books handy along with a pad of paper and a pen to keep track of what I accomplish. I'll be moving outside later when the temperature gets warm enough. I am reading House Rules by Jodi Picoult and it is riveting. I have snacks at the ready and lunch and dinner just need to be heated up. So far, so good!


  1. I know Easter just passed but Peeps are still popping up everywhere. The last place I saw one was at an ice cream place where they had created a Peeps italian ice...yum! Is that a new Picoult? Didn't know she had written a new book. Off to check it out:) Happy reading!

  2. Coffee cake sounds yummy!

    Glad to see things are off to such a great start!

    Have fun and read much!
