Preparing for Dewey's Read-a-thon

read-a-thon button Today is going to be very exciting. I singed up for a read-a-thon and not just an ordinary one but one of the biggest read-a-thons out there. The crazy thing about this one... it lasts 24 hours and I have heard die hards will actually try to read all that time.

The read-a-thon will start at 2 pm for me and I am just going to start of and see when and where I finish. As this is the first time I am participating I am not sure what I am capable of and actually just planning to have some fun and finish some books that are on my pile.
As advised by the more advanced read-a-thonners I made a pile with various genres, lengths and difficulty.

From my nightstand I took the following books

On my e-reader I got

someday, someday, maybe Lauren Graham cover Amity and Sorrow Peggy Riley cover The First rule of Swimming Courntey Angela Brkic cover

I got snacks, fruit and my favorite tea
snacks


I will post regular updates on twitter (@_ciska_)and here on the blog. I will make an attempt to visit various blogs and find a few new ones to follow trough the night. Good luck to all the participants!!

You're well prepared for your first 24hour reaathon, Ciska! Good luck. I tend to read for about 16-18 hours in total, taking a sleep in between. This time, I will be taking things easy, might not last quite that long.

Am not sure how long I last. I am going to do my allergy check for chicken today and if my body still has an allergic reaction I will probably make the full 24 hours hahaha!! (But I got to enjoy some tasty chicken)

Those books look great! I planned to read Libba Bray too but then settled for some more 'easy-breezy' books. :D And those chips look yummy, not to mention earl grey. :3 I have a pack of Twinings' black tea with vanilla prepared. I'll try to stay away from coffee heh.
